 2017-07-10, 02:41 #1 storm5510 Random Account     Aug 2009 U.S.A. 32368 Posts Registered Assignments A simple question: Is it possible for the server to double register a single exponent? Code: DoubleCheck=xxxx,54711067,73,1 This is from MadPoo's list of questionable results. I added it to my queue. Last fiddled with by Prime95 on 2017-07-10 at 20:08

As soon as I saw this I understood the reason why. There is no option to edit that I can find. If it gets hijacked, that will be a lesson learned.

At best someone might be funny and de-register the assignment but little harm would really come of it.

The server won't assign an exponent if it's already assigned, so if you picked a particular exponent it would either work and give you the assignment, or it would say it's unavailable.

It may also be that when one logs out, it becomes locked then.

I suppose someone with a fast GPU could grab it and run it with CuLu before I could get done with it on Prime95. Oh well.

Thank you all for your replies!

Except if I do it faster than you, and it turns out to be prime and I report it prime with a valid key... Then George has to give me the bonus

Read my initial. It is a Double Check.

Even it if was a first-time test, it seems to me like the person with the first reservation with a particular key would have to finish the test, regardless of what anyone else did after the first reservation.
