Thanks for the information Michael, that makes things clearer.

Hi,

I just got an email from Primegrid saying I found a GFN-15 prime, but when I look at the workunit in question, it has not been double-checked yet (looks like the wingman will probably return it in a few hours).

Is this normal? I thought a prime had to be double checked before a confirmation email is sent out. Admittedly this is a small prime, outside the top 5k, but still seems premature...

As an aside, the prime count has not yet updated in my sub-project counts on my account homepage; presumably waiting for the double-check to confirm it is valid first.

Thanks,
Darryl

We've found another n=15 (32768) prime!

On 14 Jul 2019 20:04:41, the 266,179 digit prime 132779816^32768+1 was found by Darryl using the OCL2 (combined) app.

The double checker of this task was KernalSanders on 14 Jul 2019 22:16:36 using the OCL2 (combined) app.

Congratulations!


Nice. My first GFN prime :) There's only so many PPS and SGS hits you can have before you need a change of scenery...

Avert thine eyes or be blinded, I have finally reached all active projects gold!

(with the exception of SoB and GFN-21 challenges pushing me way to much further; from now on I can with easy conscience only focus on projects I personally like most – SoB/ESP/PSP most likely)


Congratulations! All those yellow badges are pretty bright indeed :)

Time to upgrade that old silver badge :) And it appears that my first wingman is Michael himself.

Norton Antivirus is literally the first thing I uninstall on any PC that happens to have it.

I’ve seen many PC’s take a heavy performance impact from it (at work I have seen it completely cripple some systems), and with later iterations of Windows the inbuilt Defender does a perfectly fine job anyway. I’ve not had any issues with just using Windows Defender for several years now.
