mdettweiler,

Fascinating -- thank you! This is growing on me fast.

You're right, the second exponent IS a little lower than the first one. And after a little less than one hour doing P-1 work on it, almost 4% of stage 1 is complete. So I guess that it's not necessary to increase the RAM setting. (Right?)

The "Per iteration time" on the first worker increased from 0.068 seconds to 0.079 seconds after I got the second worker going. Is that a coincidence, or a result of starting the second worker?

And finally (for now!), if only Prime95 is running on the PC (such that it's almost always at 100%), does that help the computer to finish the exponent faster?
