Arrow Torture your system

Luckily I was not 321-LLR'ing on overheating Athlon that was giving wrong results with LLR with no error being reported by LLR -- only wrong double-checked RES64s. (It was the power supply unit which I replaced with a new one.) In solving the problem I used "mprime" (the linux version of Georges "p95") to torture test my faulty sytem.

I strongly recommend all 321 participants to "toture test" their systems with either mprime or p95 for a few hours. We don't want to miss a prime due to some system error. You can get the programs from

You can just use the programs for "torture testing" without joining up to GIMPS.

Let us know if you get any errors...
