Default Reductio ad Absurdum

As a rule of thumb, the number of completed LL tests/day is proportional to
A) the number in progress
B) the frequency of their completion.

Ivy bridge is ~3 times faster than core2 (Tom Fivemack)

So God thought we might expect a big improvement in the rate of completion,
and all would be light.

But no:

Of course! Daveiddy owns 17 computers with Ivy Bridge each equipped with 3 GTX550ti s in crossfire!
Why else would he make this comment?

Nope and Nope.
I am a theoretical physicist.
And how much use would one man be to this project anyway.

By way of "showing willing" I run what I have 24/7 on LL.

PS It's good to see that you regard this forum as "useful homework".
PPS I am currently doing a 50M "suspect" expo.
I would have returned it, but noted that you had TFed it from 70 to 72.
Added interest being "will I get the same residue as the suspect?"

But rather small... Only 630 GHz Days over the last year.

That's what? A single computer?

Hope you're ready to prove it (presumably by helping me with homework should I need it).

Alas for you, theoretical physicists only do imaginary physics.

The best kind!!!! Who needs those fancy particle acceleratormajiggers? Those are for the engineers.

Why do think I like this factoring/primes stuff? Because it has absolutely no direct practical use!
