Search all bases with 3 k remaining (at n<300K) to n>=300K; 13/13 bases completed on 2021/07/11! 3. Search all bases with <= 10 k's remaining (at n<200K) to n>=200K; 18/25 bases completed. 4. Complete all Riesel/Sierp base 2/4 odd/even k's and n's to n=8M base 2. 0M/1.35M n-range completed. 5. Complete all k's on base R3 to n>=100K; 11G/33G k-range completed. 6. Find 60 top 3000 primes; 52/60 primes found. 7. Find 15 top 1000 primes; 5/15 primes found. 8. Find 4 top 500 primes; 3/4 primes found. I have lowered the goals on several categories due to the amount of effort required for Goal #5. I'm confident that we can accomplish most or all of these goals. All help is greatly appreciated!

 2021-01-03, 11:39 #3 gd_barnes     May 2007 Kansas; USA 101×103 Posts I added another goal: #4, after Reb agreed to have BOINC work on it. That will be the last change. Last fiddled with by gd_barnes on 2021-01-03 at 11:42

Goal #3 should be no problem if we have the sieve files.

Updated. Actually Goal 4 will be by far the most difficult. It is unlikely to finish although I will throw many of my machines at it for awhile later in the year to give it a reasonable shot.

Goal 3...no problem at all. All sieve files are in the works and each base isn't much work for BOINC. Goal 5 is a little tough but doable.

I set the goals high to see what we can pull off.
