Default I might have delivered some bad results

Hey hey,

Last week I noticed some odd behaviour of my PC and it let to the discovery that one of my memory modules got borged. The effect was that the memory between 2MB - 4MB and 6MB - 8MB was malfunctioning. This might have started somewhere in October, but quite possibly later. In October I did GPU trial division for GIMPS and also had 3 cores running PSP-PRP. I am afraid that all my results from end September this year till today should be discarded as not reliable.

Today I have quit all 8 tests and started new ones.

Sorry for the inconvenience,

iconized, DPC.

If you can PM me a list of all the TF you did, I'll rerun them for you. Results or worktodo would be fine; if you deleted those, then you can look at PrimeNet's "My Results" page to figured out what you submitted.

Thanks. In case you decide to watch, it'll be a while before I get to them, possibly a couple of weeks.

I guess I had a 80486 relapse or so, malfunctioning memory was between 2-4 GB and 6-8 GB.
