One more thing: I think it is great to have a server that can handle the super-fast tests like port 9000. Those small tests are just a nuisance but are highly necessary for NPLB to keep up the montra of No Prime Left Behind and it's great for folks who love to see how many gillions of results they can process in a day, week, or month! Even I couldn't resist putting 7 of my 10 quads on it for a day-and-a-half just to see what I could do.

We could even consider tests as small as n=10000 or 20000 in the future. Psst...don't tell Karsten though. It's enough primes for him to keep up with starting from n=50000.
