The time and effort that George et al. have put into this project so that we users may not only efficiently participate, but also have fun doing so, is unbelievable. The fact that the system has...

Doesn't the manual assignment request form limit requests to a maximum number of exponents on each of a maximum number (12 IIRC) of cores? So, assuming this user made use of the manual assignment...

Wow, never would have thunk it. We probably should get any mirror sites to update their...

Also, I would assume this probably will spell the...

That's the advertisement for Shaw Binary Services that appears on the left-hand side of (almost?) every PrimeNet page. Do they exist any more? Are they still providing free services to us? If no...
