Or even more important: a "is prime" message!

I looked and there are four "is not prime" messages in there. So they probably haven't been reported. What can I do about that?

I stopped P95, exited, renamed prime.spl and restarted and that seems to have worked. It communicated with the server and sent a bunch of completion dates, and I don't see the error message.

I have old prime.txt and local.txt files. Will replacing them cause me to lose work, or cause me to lose credit for work done?

I don't think Seventeen or Bust does double checks (probably does if one reports a prime). Also, I'm going to be doing other things, starting in a few days.

I looked at more overclocking videos, and it looks like a lot of work. If there was software to do it more automatically, I'd probably try it.

Anyhow, before I added the fourth memory stick I was...

That should do it. You say that you run the torture test for 72 hours?

I looked up some videos about overclocking i5 and i7, and it may be more involved than I want to get into.

But is there a point where errors start to creep in before it gets unstable? A one-bit error can ruin a week of work. I'm thinking of the old adage "Do you want it done quickly or done right?"

I've never overclocked. I wonder about the advisability of it - it it causes the system to miss one bit, that ruins your result.
