[QUOTE=fairsky;353459]i experience several CGI timeouts while trying to get 1000 TFjobs in a single request.

the last timeout fault happened when I tried to get 10,000 TFs.[/QUOTE]

Here you have some options:

- Reserve them ~400 at a time and copy the lines out and refresh;
- Look at the ranges and have a program parse the exponents out and don't even bother reserving theme;
- Do work at a higher bit level so that you need less exponents.

For submitting if you have a lot of work, you want to be using MISFIT.

You might be surprised by just how much "here" is here....

thank you for the instructions.
I am going to check MISFIT out.

Welp, it looks as though it's all down again (everything this time, not just fact checking).

If you can add server expertise, will you volunteer to help?[/QUOTE]

You beat me to it. Volunteer project, volunteer participants, volunteer staff. More importantly, free (or extremely low-cost) server resources, graciously provided despite our huge database and heavy traffic.

It is quite plausible that PrimeNet v6 will be needed in the near future. If you know how to potentially improve the infrastructure, while keeping costs at their present levels, pipe up. If you know how to secure newer hardware at a low cost, pipe up. If you can provide bandwidth, pipe up.

Them's the brakes until we either (1) rival Wikipedia in size and popularity, or (2) find a hundred-million-digit prime and secure $50-100K in prize money.

server fault?
I cannot see anything, but "pnErrorResult=3 pnErrorDetail=Database unavailable ==END=="....

Happens from time to time. Guess it´ll be fixed in a couple of hours.

I have emailed Scott, but it is currently 4:48 AM in California, though I don't really know where he resides. My impression is that the server is there.
