Dave, no need to respond to Max's question.
That one should be updated every 15 minutes with the rest of the status page. Looking right now at the code (which generates that page and handles the primes_xxxx.txt files), I confirm that it does indeed append primes to the respective log files immediately after counting up the totals for how many results each user has submitted since the start of the day.

I'm not sure how anything could end up temporarily missing from that log, then show up later; the script runs every 15 minutes (more precisely, at :01, :15, :30, and :45 after the hour) and at that time adds any new primes to the log. Any further script runs that day will see that the prime is already present in the log and not add it again. The only possibility I can think of is that a prime was reported in the forum before the 15-minute page update caught it, that is, you spotted the prime directly in one of your clients' logs rather than seeing it first in the notification email.
