Did you want me to turn off auto-notify, and not display found primes on the web page, for this range on port 8000?

Oh, yes, good thinking Dave. Yes, please turn off auto-notify. I as well as others would have Emails running out of our ears otherwise.

Let's all pause while we visualize that.

Well...that was a quick change to #3. lol

Believe it or not, I was not trying to influence people, which is why I didn't officially vote at first. I just wanted to let everyone know the facts of how things would go.

We could potentially do n=200K-350K by k-value also, which is why I wanted to stop the n=200K-210K range but we can have a team discussion about that also when the sieving is done and even if we want to start it at that point. Having n=50K-200K, 200K-350K, and 350K-500K running all at once will be quite an effort and may spread the resources a bit thin so we may want to wait until n=50K-200K is done to start n=200K-350K since both are non-top-5000 ranges.

I'll be on for another hour or so, will be out for 10-12 hours, and then back on for a couple of hours. I'll wait for more opinions if people want to give them. If I see no more votes for the first 2 choices, I'll get the drive set up at that time or effectively early Tuesday morning U.S.

Good one.

On another note, Max and David, since we initially started port 8000 with n=350K-352K, should we save that server for the n=350K-500K range? I would think that would be best.

If so, David, can you set up another server for the n=50K-200K range in the next few hours? It's either that or we'll have to set up another server later on for the n=350K-500K range.

Or...if you have some old server set up already that you think would work OK for this, then that is fine too.

Yes, it probably would be best to save port 8000 for the 350K-500K range since, after all, it is port 8000, for the 8th drive...probably would make most sense to keep it there.

Maybe port 9000 would work for the 50K-200K range? (Or is that port not available on Linux machines? In that case feel free to pick anything else that's open.)

Also, keep in mind that G8000 is still sitting around awaiting work--we could always use that for one of the ranges. Either that, or we could just keep it around as a secondary server for any of the drives if needed.

I'm confused. I'm aware that port 8000 is awaiting work. But should we save port 8000 for n=350K-500K as originally intended or run other ranges through it?...can't do both. lol

Maybe you're getting confused about just which port 8000 I'm talking about? I was specifically referring to G8000, not IB8000. Of course the plan is to save IB8000 for n=350K-500K, but G8000 is still uncommitted. That's what I meant to say...sorry for the confusion.

lol never mind...and that is why I was confused. My bad; I didn't read close enough. Too many 8000's floating around.

Please refresh my memory, what did we use G8000 for? I don't see any results files for it on the web page that you set up.

G8000 was originally intended to be used for the 8th Drive, though at the time that started we had just gone through all those difficulties regarding the DNS stuff, so we decided not to use it for such a high-priority effort. Thus it was never loaded with any work, though you can still see it on the http://nplb-gb1.no-ip.org/llrnet/ page.

Oh yes...

Yeah, I saw it listed there. Just no work done on it.

I don't know what to do with it right now. We can decide later.

Okay. Yeah, it probably would be wisest to stick the n=50K work on one of David's servers--they're much hardier and thus are probably going to take the heat of those little tiny k/n pairs much, much better.

As for G8000, even if we don't find a use for it right away, that's not a big deal--it won't spoil if it sits around for a while.
