Question Can I manually add tasks BEFORE the current one? If not, how do I add after anyway?

Well, I decided to maybe try another 10M digit number and set it to do that, but, I forgot that I had my original copy of Prime95 elsewhere when I copied over to the new setup, so I lost the data in it, including the current assignments. I was hoping there was a way I could get it to run through them first because if the 10M test takes only half as long this time around as it did on the old barton (and don't underestimate that barton, it did pretty amazingly considering) it will still be getting kind of close to the overdue date. Each one is SUPPOSED to take something along the lines of one day, so the only reason I can imagine it would be a problem to just queue them up before my current task and run through them first then return to it would be if maybe it would loose the current task? Well, anyway, I don't really know how to manually add tasks, which is what I guess I need to do anyway. Can someone explain how?

Just manually add your work entries to worktodo.ini. You can add them before or after your current assignment.

I figured I could do that, but, what's the syntax? (The others are factoring only numbers.)

EDIT: Well, I looked at it and guessed it used the same syntax. Does this look correct:

Test=28939843,62,0
Test=30593531,62,0
Test=34796257,62,0
Test=34796257,62,0

It unreserved some of the others, which is fine since that means it's that many less I can mess up. ^_^

that looks like it will work, but factoring may need special attention
i think the second number is how far you factor.

for example, test=xxxxxxxx,62,1 means factor xxxxxxx to 2^62-1, i think.

The second number is how it *has been* factored. Leave it at 62. Prime95 will determine how far it should be factored.

Ok, well, so far it's running fine I think. No obvious signs of problems. I think the manual entry thing worked. One question, it will actually resume the 10M number where it left off when it gets to it later? It's not a big deal, I only had a little more than a day or so put into it anyway before it struck me that I had those other numbers reserved that weren't in the list, but, it's annoying to loose even just that. I think from now on I keep Prime95 in a seperate directory like I have this so I don't loose anything when I delete the program files folder (wanted a completely clean install.)

It will pick up where it left off if the save files for that exponent are still in your Prime95 folder. Otherwise it will start from the beginning.
