BTW, I also wonder what kind of "project" PrimeGrid is? They have reported so far twin candidates, Woodalls, and now Prime Sierpinski. They are also working on 3*2^n-1, and I heard they would like to run Proth and some generalized Woodalls. Looks to me like a team, not any particular project...
They have lots of different "subprojects", many of which are actually just BOINC faces on existing mersenneforum prime-search projects. Each user can choose in his preferences what mix of subprojects he'd like to be assigned work from.
