Currently ranked 13th.

Congrats!

Looks like we won't defend our current position in terms of score

It's huge, congrats to them!

But it's reported jointly by two projects and they will share
credit, so we won't be far behind.

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.

I meant "project" on Top-5000 rankings. Each project there is supposed to be about a particular subset of all prime types, not primes of all types.
