Default LLRnet/PRPnet rally June 4th-6th

Hi everyone,

We'd like to have another LLRnet/PRPnet rally. It will begin on Friday, June 4th at 7:00 PM GMT and run for 48 hours until Sunday, the 6th at 7:00 PM GMT. It will be run on LLRnet port 3000 and PRPnet 9000 for k=400-600. Tests should be somewhere in the n=800K-850K range during the rally.

LLRnet config info.:
server = ""
port = 3000

PRPnet config info.:
server = ""
port = 9000
Or, in terms of a prpclient.ini config line:

Be sure and change your userID to whatever ID you prefer. Most people use their ID here at mersenneforum. It is also best to set the cache at from around 2 to 10 pairs.

Info. for downloading the newest LLRnet client can be found at LLRnet supports LLR V3.8!.

Info. for downloading the newest PRPnet client can be found at PRPnet.

As a point of interest for those who might be new to NPLB and for others who haven't done any testing with us for a while, we have some milestones that we would like to shoot for in the near future. Please refer to our primes graph and drive progress as well as to our "Countdown meter". NPLB's goal all along has been to fill in holes in the prime search ranges for Riesel base 2. We'd like to get the dots in that k=300-1001 range fully extended to n=1M by year end 2011 so that they are closer to where k<300 (worked by RPS) is at. In targeting k=400-600 for the 2nd consecutive time in this rally, we have set a relatively aggressive goal to have it tested completely to n=1M by year end 2010.

Free DC didn't show up last time despite us getting the word out. That's too bad. Let the ROLP BBQ commence once again. Perhaps AMD users can give us some competition this time around.
