 2005-02-26, 14:53 #1 wouter   Sep 2002 3 Posts Will participation increase again? After M24,036,583 participation soared. Will it again? Might depend on the media\internet presentation of M25,xxx,xx1. Too close to Mers-41 for comfort? Why do people join or quit the priming game? I guess about nobody is in it for the prize money or the rare glories. How many are in it since 1997? I found myself scattered over four different identities: (sounds like a disease ) Rank Acc ID LL P90* CPU yrs* 2063 Wouter Meeussen 76,27 40 17967 wouter meeussen 3,37 36 28599 W. Meeussen 0,94 10 2832 S98444 53,726 21 cause: PC crash, new PC, new email address & Acc ID (forgot old one). keep up the good work, Scott, I 'll keep on priming. W.

Does anyone remember how many accounts where active at the end of 1997? I still remember that i started with a Pentium-100 and iirc that system was able to finish some exponents per month back then.

 2005-02-26, 20:32 #5 Team Subgenius   23×127 Posts I suppose I'm a newbie... Knew about it in 1997, but didn't signup until ... Account created: 04 Feb 1998 03:08 UTC First batch of systems were P66's. I've had up to 100 P3 Xeon systems running at one time (during client acceptance testing; yes I took them out of the loop correctly), but am back down to about 10 now. Even got up to the top 8 in factoring at one point, down to #17 these days... -subgenius (arg)

Can't remember what I was running back then. I think it was a Pentium Pro 166mhz.
