Default Question of the Day - 09/12/2002

QOTD, is this web server running a GIMPS process? :) :)

Nope... We don't own it... :(

Our old server (Sun Ultra 1) ran mlucas, but it was only 200MHz, so a double check took almost 25 days... But no matter how much money I threw at it, I couldn't match the uptime and reliability of a hosted solution... Not to mention the bandwidth...

It could easily handle the load... It never used more than 1% for the httpd process... And that was with gzip compression turned on... The bottleneck was my DSL line...

Still, I miss the good old days... :(

I spend the same CPU time to double-check exponents on my Pentium II 350 at office...

It's not a good or bad thing, I was just wondering. :-)
