As such, I'm uploading all the work I completed in the 306 dd numbers, and will start working upwards from 307.
Sounds like a workable idea. I have started ten machines, for now, with 1000 each. They aren't identical, but until bedtime I'll keep up with them. I do need to modify a couple scripts to make the assignments and collections easier. Then again, maybe I'll just collect a little less often than my other setup. I suppose a bright side might be how much of an increase in proven primes there will be from this. But, unfortunately, I see no real reason someone did this other than it being a "fun" experiment.
