I see you've added it to Wikipedia.

Please consider making an SVG version if you can. We generally prefer vector images for things like maps and logos.

Currently, in the taskbar, Prime95 uses a green icon for "running" and a red icon for "stopped".

Maybe there could be a yellow icon for "paused"?

I could swear Prime95 used to have a yellow icon that indicates the program is idle.

Happy time here too! Related to that, we just discovered by accident few days ago that you can press <escape> key in P95 to stop all workers.
We wrongly assumed that we were in notepad++ window, where we were editing a text, and pressed <escape>, but we were in P95 window which looked similar (text output).
We used P95 for 20 years and had no idea about that!

I had forgotten about that old-timer.

From the current prime95 resource file:

Code:
IDI_YELLOW_ICON         ICON                    "res\\yellow_i.ico"

I've used Prime 95 since I first read about it in 2001 and have never seen a yellow icon.

And I even made this thread!!!!

I have an imperfect SVG version (made by an online SVG converter), but only of the globe part. Also, my original file of the complete logo is 7500 by 5000 px, which I think is more than enough for any small format use.


If you're watching, George, I can design a visit card (or something else) in case you are interested.

BTW, George, if you want the complete file, I can send it to you. It's free to use for the needs of GIMPS.

I think I changed from yellow to red very early on, probably 1998 or before. The idea was to match a stop light, green for go, red for stop.

IIRC it was closer to 2000. The first runs I did was with the Red icon.
