Mystwalker, I agree with Lars. Changing the bounds from 100K to 200K will make very little difference and so on. It might take a second less for a billion, such small time changes don't make a significant difference.

But, if we find a prime, we might gain a few minutes for each billion, hence it is best to look for new primes than to double check for right now. Later in the project when we have more computers and can expend some computers, we can use some for the double check effort.

But still if some one has slow computers they can definately participate in the double check effort.
