I hope to find at least one more prime for k=105 until n=1.5M, I suppose that will give me half the points with need. Cruelty is testing k=59 on n=3M range, let's hope he can find one prime soon...lol...that would be great.

Unfortunately, you would need about 9 primes at n=1.5M (or just 3 around n=2M) to yield the same score as for one n=3M prime...

But the more we find, the closer we get.

Got one at 1.4M...

 2009-12-23, 11:22 #30 Kosmaj     Nov 2003 2×1,811 Posts Carlos Congrats on yet another k=105 megabit prime! We are approaching 1000 primes in Top-5000 and the score of 49.0 ! Currently: 991 primes and the score of 48.9384 - Last fiddled with by Kosmaj on 2009-12-23 at 11:25
 2010-01-04, 08:16 #31 em99010pepe     Sep 2004 2·5·283 Posts Thank you Kosmaj. Anyway, by looking at the overall standings PrimeGrid will in three months or even four months be back to first spot, it is a matter of time and primes due to its tremendous CPU power available. RPS has 80 primes between Top5000 and Top4500, NPLB 83, PrimeGrid 206 and FDCPS 35, respectively. Between RPS and NPLB will be an interesting fight..Reaching 1000 primes will be difficult but not impossible. Carlos
