Default Strategic double and triple checks (PRP's, P-1's, and special Certs too)

New sticky to house the lists. Post requests for DC and TC's and claim of exponents. The mods will keep the lists maintained in the top posts. Post with requests for rechecks and exponents claimed will be removed when the lists are updated.
Always register your claims right away. Those that are claimed but not registered will remain on the lists. If they are listed as being assigned to Anonymous (or others not known to be finishers) and show no progress, they will be moved to the watch list section.

The lists are kept fairly up to date.

The easy way to get some assignments (with Prime95):
  • Grab the lines of the exponents that you will do.
  • Stop Prime95.
  • Edit your worktodo.txt, inserting the new lines, save it, and close the editor.
  • Restart Prime95
  • Go to the menu Advanced-> Manual Communication
  • Make sure "Contact PrimeNet server now" and "Send new expected completion dates to server" are checked. Hit OK
  • After Prime95 is done communicating, look and see if any of the new exponents don't have an Assignment ID (because they were already assigned.) If they don't, stop Prime95, reopen the worktodo.txt, remove those lines, save, then restart Prime95

Instructions for mprime:
  • Grab the lines of the exponents that you will do.
  • Stop mprime.
  • Edit your worktodo.txt, inserting the new lines, save it, and close the editor.
  • Delete the line starting with `LastEndDatesSent=` in `local.txt`.
  • Run `mprime -c` for force communication, and watch for errors: exponents that didn't get assignments should be removed from `worktodo.txt`.
  • Restart mprime.

For gpu runs, see https://www.mersenneforum.org/showpo...4&postcount=21 and follow links it contains as needed.
