Default Four more primes contest! -Closed

Today is 2010-11-01. A new month a new contest. We need four more primes to make this the best year in the project. To see the number of primes found by year, look at the Primes Reported paragraph of the Description post.
Using Prime Scoring, the years shape up like this:
Code:
2006	9319511
2010	8390964
2007	4763138
2005	3330344
2008	1907691
2004	407426
The contest will go from 2010-11-04 UTC to 2010-11-16 UTC.

The prize will be "Bragging Rights". There are no other prizes.

The scores are available here. A copy of the scores will be taken at the start of the contest and subtracted from the scores at the end of the contest to determine the winner.

Code:
Contest has started!  Here are the starting scores:
User ID Total Score Tests Performed PRPs Found Primes Found 
NeoGen 	260028 		190 		0 	0 
ltd 	1671470 	1235 		0 	1 
Joe_O 	3381147 	2504 		0 	0
You must use PRP client 2.4.7 (or an older PRP client if it works) available here. Please do not use another more recent client, as it will hang. We will sympathize with you, but you have been warned.

Speaking of warnings, use only machines you own, or have written permision to use. We will not be responsible if you get into trouble. This is always true, but needs to be emphasized now and again. We will not sympathize with you if you break this rule. You must act responsibly.

The primality program LLR is CPU intensive as is PFGW. You may force PRP to use either one, by removing or renaming the other. The newest LLR is available here (use cLLR for Windows). The newest PFGW is available here. The timings are very close.
These programs will make your machine run hot. You should probably use a program to monitor temperatures and shut down if your machine gets too hot. You probably should not use a laptop or all-in-one machine. Please feel free to post any other warnings that I have forgotten.

The server is server=sr5s:100:1:www.psp-project.de:7103

By popular demand, the contest has been extended to the following server:
server=sr5:100:1:prime2u.com:7171 which is a 3.3.6 server that will handle 4.0.2 clients as well.

"Let the fun begin!"
