Default we have passed the 14000 test mark

Hi all,

The project as a whole has passed the 14000 tests mark!! Good work everyone

Updated webpage is over here:
http://www.psearch.us

(don't use iup.edu address anymore, it's deactivated).

According to the Binomial Distribution (and the Poisson Distribution), we have now passed the 50% mark for our chances of finding a prime. The probability of finding at least one prime after testing 14058 candidates is 53% !!!! Let's cross our fingers and hope for a prime real soon.

Also, check out this link too:

Good luck to all in our search for prime #17.

regards,
william
