good news!

Yeah I just noticed it as well and was about to post :)

Whoa dang

firejuggler 2013-01-26 00:31

now, to determine which one it was....

Looks promising! No hardware errors were detected during the run. The computer in question has also reported a dozen or so composite results without hardware errors.

I've emailed Curtis Cooper to send a copy of the last save file. I'll then re-run the last few thousand iterations. If that also reports a prime, then we almost certainly have a winner!

I've also emailed several others looking for big iron to run a verification using mlucas or glucas. I suppose a CUDALucas run would be good too. Anyone with a GTX580 or 590 that would care to give it a go? Batalov?

Holy crap yeah!!

EDIT: could you tell us the general range of it? ex 50M or 45M... or is that not "allowed"?

I'm ready for DC, just let me know.

Now would be a good time to re-read all old threads to understand that asking is futile. ;-)
