Default Hello? ello? llo? lo? o?

Empty in here.

So MoooMooo is missing (anybody have any idea here? Is he still alive?) and the new sieve is stalled. I don't even know if the sieve file is still complete or not.

Do we need to start something new or...?

I know many of you have not visited the forum for quite some time, but please come back. We have a lot of work to be done on n=390,000, and we could use some help

Who knows? We've had at least one member of the forum (Mally, or mfgoode) die. There may be more.

Some possibilities:
- He/she forgot his/her password
- He/she is stuck in the middle of the desert/jungle/ocean/mountain/prison/alien spaceship with no internet access
- He/she is dead

But it doesn't really matter (see below)

I guess I've taken over the project for the time being. If the project needs an email, use mine: oddball390(word that rhymes with cat)yahoo(word that rhymes with spot)com.

At one time, RieselSieve, the project that tried to solve the Riesel Conjecture, equaled or even surpassed this project in computing power and popularity. The project leader disappeared suddenly, and all kinds of theories were thrown around. Here is one of the more bizarre ones. From:
http://www.mersenneforum.org/showthread.php?t=10686

Quote:
I think that it's possible that Lee(B2_Riesel) may be intentionally trying to kill the project. I have multiple reasons for thinking this.

Reason #1: Lee claimed that he was court ordered to stay off the Internet for 60 days because the government suspected him of using the RS project as a front for a cracking operation. I know it sounds stupid, but that's basically the gist of it. Yet I know of at least one person who's claimed to have seen a known Ikariam(online browser game) account of his with activity.

Reason #2: Before he disappeared, he had told people he would only be offline for about 15 minutes to move the servers. Now, this is mere conjecture, but I can imagine him having unanticipated troubles and simply saying "F*** it, I quit."

He has given the project over to punchcard. I don't know punchcard's real name, apparently he was a co-worker of Lee's in meatspace at one point. It is my opinion that this was done simply because punchcard is better at being a hardass and not backing down. I believe they intend to kill the project and decided punchcard would be better able to deal with the problematic questions about the project.

This is just my opinion, based on experience and watching #rieselsieve channel, as well as some PMs in IRC. I wouldn't be surprised if this gets me permanently banned from #rieselsieve, we'll see.

I think the Riesel Sieve project is dead, if the Riesel conjecture continues to be studied, I don't think it will be done by Riesel Sieve. I also think that it will be very difficult to get any of the known results in the database if anyone wants to continue the project.
As for TPS's former leader? Similarly mysterious, so let the speculation begin.
