I have managed to resurrect my oldest laptop and it is now merrily working on some P-1 work for two WR candidates. I doubt I will be able to continue to run it once winter is over... it is currently propped up with a cooling pad by the open screen door. Per an earlier post this is the one I will try and run in an outside closet once the days get cool enough. We had some cool weather last week but this week is supposed to be in the low 80s- too hot for an already struggling computer.

Earlier today I found my first P-1 factor:
M70370693 has a factor: 101681234974071514641703 (76.428 bits)
k = 3 × 97 × 5351 × 5743 × 80789

I've just been given a brace of freshly shot pheasants, one of each sex. They are hanging in the garage at the moment.

I'll peel and core them at the weekend. Will this make me a pheasant plucker?

My first 10,000 GhzDays of GPU
 
[QUOTE=kladner;388435]@petrw1: Congratz! :tu::wacky:[/QUOTE]

Took less than 3 weeks. (averaging 515/day)

In perspective my respectable i5-2520 2-core has not made it there yet in 2.5 years
My i5-2500 4-core has not made it there yet in 13 months.

At this rate in 3 more weeks - 6 WEEKS total it will have surpassed my first Quad (Q9550) with over 6 YEARS of GIMPS time.

4th page news: I now have 4 quads with over 20,000 and up to 26,000 GhzDays each.

Today I received an email from Harvard.
I have been officially accepted as a remote TF for the CS50 course (Introduction to Computer Science).

I wanted to share my happiness with you, and thank you for all the technical insight I found in this forum (a special thank to George and Mike).

Congrats.....Maybe for your first task you should start a movement to convert GIMPS stats from GhzDays to some function of a SMOOT....an official(?) Harvard Unit of Measure

Wikipedia has a nice entry. I expect Google had a strategically placed MIT alumnus or two because:
[URL="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Smoot"]Smoot[/URL]
[QUOTE]Google Calculator also incorporates smoots, which it reckons at exactly 67 inches (1.7018 meters). Google also uses the smoot as an optional unit of measurement in their Google Earth software and Google Maps distance measurement tool.[/QUOTE]
