Hmmm...moving fast....About 15,000 in 90 days...No I can't touch that.

FWIW, my system will be off line for about 3-4 days. We are taking a modest road trip down to the southern end of Illinois to visit a favorite State Park (Giant City), and National Forest (Shawnee).

I don't like to leave things running unattended for too long, so about 850 GHz-days/day will drop out. A couple of dozen TF assignments may get a little long in the tooth, but should get finished before they age out.

OK, thanks for the head's up. And enjoy your trip!

So everyone knows, Oliver has done it again -- 133,000 GHz days in seven days! Thanks Oliver!!! (Although he warned me yesterday that his throughput is going to "return to normal" (normal for Oliver, that is... ) for the foreseeable future).

Further, with our current firepower, we've been able to sustain about 300 LLTF's to 74 per day, mostly from 72. As in, we, are now able to sustain going to 74 and keep the LL'ers and P-1'ers fed, plus bring in those candidates released at below 74 as they are recycled.

Lastly, some interesting statistics... Although the Cat 4 "churners" ask for approximately 1,000 assignments per day, only approximately 72 are completed. Thus, we should be able to recover ~93% of those sub-optimally released.

This does *not* mean we're out of the woods yet -- please keep the cycles coming. In about two months we should have some breathing room again.

Thanks for everyone who's helping with this effort.

These two things are not mutually exclusive.

I reissue my request to have interim LL results saved on the server (maybe an option for discussion since George opened the "next version of PrimeNet" can-of-worms.

Corallory....only if there is a minimum of X% progress ... maybe 25% ... enough to make it worth while storing and passing on the interim work vs starting over.

I wonder how many of the other 99% that would get....maybe not much if most are abandoned with no progress.

Most are abandoned with no, or very, VERY little, progress.

While a good idea in theory, I suspect the bandwidth, and programmer effort, involved is not worth it.

I'm thinking the bandwidth issues would be the toughest.

If 100 million digits ever gathered a bigger following, they might have more interest in something like that. Saved checkpoints would be the holy grail of doublechecks.

Bandwidth (and hardware) are cheap. Humans are expensive (and error-prone).
