Is there an idiot's guide (for folks like me) to using these for GIMPS work? I could always use more power.

It was a fairly easy process, and I am by no means amazing with computers. Basically you go to the ec2 site, make an account and open a micro instance. They have some startup guides there that are fairly straightforward too. You download a pem key and use windows remote desktop to login to the windows one, and an ssh command to login to the Linux one.

It appears these finished successfully.
Did you grab two more?

Yep, two more are reaching the end. Every time I remember about them and give a quick look at them, their speed makes me think of
track #2 (Grave Disperato /For wind orchestra and clock/) from Tales and Songs from Weddings and Funerals.

Requires the server to travel faster than the speed of light. Using currently accepted relativity formulas, there would be no time dilation at warp speed so this is not possible (although there are conflicting theories about time dilation at faster than light travel).

Wouldn't it be the other way around--that less time would pass for the server than for the "stationary" observer? (EDIT: .....if the server were the one at relativistic speed.....)

And returned on the previous night.
