The project was born thank to a William Lipp (wblipp) idea: he's the owner, I only dedicated webspace, resources, software and management to it

Nobody, down in 2004, could think that such big numbers could be tested for primality, we only used it to test our skills on software. The project was never officially closed, but we decided to stop (at least for a while) when GPUs completed the actual range, as their power could be better used for GIMPS.

Nevertheless, the results of OBD (and of its sister project for100M Digits held by Uncwilly) were transferred to GIMPS archives (both .org and .ca) for future reference.
