http://www.sierpinskisieve.com/index.php seems really confusing in terms of what ranges are done and what is available. May be we can continue this thread as a summary of what is going on. What ranges prime grid is working on, which ranges are being reserved in the automated system etc.

Thanks!
The page you linked to is just an overview. http://www.sierpinskisieve.com/gap_check.php is the page that lists the available range(s). Currently there is only one range available:

If you know what range size you want enter it here, otherwise use the calculator. Press the Reserve Range button to reserve it under your username. Comment on your range if you so desire.

Range Calculator

If you don't know what range size you want choose a processor speed that best matches yours, or enter a kps speed into the speed box.

The calculator then gives you a time prediction or a range size recommendation, pressing "use" will transfer your selection to the reservation box.

Select Your CPU --AMD-- AMD K6-2 300Mhz Athlon 1Ghz Athlon XP1600 Athlon XP1800 Athlon XP2000 Athlon XP2100 Athlon XP2200 Athlon XP2400 Athlon XP2500 Athlon XP2800 AMD64 3000 Barton 2.0Ghz Barton 2.2Ghz Barton 2.4Ghz Barton 2.5Ghz --Intel-- Pentium 133 PII 333Mhz PIII 750Mhz PIII 1Ghz Centrino 1.6Ghz Opteron 242 1.6Ghz Celeron Mobile 2.4Ghz
Estimated Speed: kps

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Range Size:
Days 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 Weeks 1 2 3 4 Months 1 2 3
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
You enter the size of the range you want (eg 10) and you get your range:

You have successfully reserved the range 1277100-1277110. Here is the data for your nextrange.txt file:

pmin=1277100000000000
pmax=1277110000000000



And for those of you nostalgic for a thread style display:

1277100-1277110 Joe_O [Reserved
It's as easy as that.

VJS and JoeO, it makes sense now. Thanks for the answers. How do I track the progress of 1000T-1200T range. (What work needs to be done etc)? Will this be posted on the automated ranges website?

I am also interested in looking at ranges that have been reserved and the factors not turned in (i.e. pending), where do I find a list of these ranges?

We stopped allowing that after a user started to poach others reservations.

Really? When I check the user page for the PrimeGrid user, for example, I can see all of its reserved ranges (and when I check other users [since PrimeGrid doesn't have any ranges marked as "complete" yet], I can see completed ranges too).

Thank you for pointing that out. I'll see what can be done about it.

What Citrix was talking about was a list like this:

Now let's say someone decides that October 31, 2007 is a long time to have held a reservation without finishing it. So they decide to start sieving it and submitting the factors they find. The original person waits until they are done sieving before submitting their factors, so their factors come back as already found. Don't you think that they would be angry? Maybe angry enough to quit? It has happened. So we have taken some steps to prevent it from happening again.

I'm open to constructive critisism on what can be moved, removed or improved to make the site more useful and accessible.

@Citrix:

As the ranges left between 1000T and 1200T all only require non combined sievieng I decided to run them without public reservation to make sure that we do not end with some ranges done with the wrong dat file.(special when shifting back to normal reservation) That is also the the reason why the download link to the non combined dat file is dead.

Everything upto 1062T is already reserved.

The sieving is done mostly by BlisteringSheep and Brucifer with some small ranges done on my systems.

What ever you guys decide is fine with me. I just wanted to learn a way to look at how the project was progressing. (What sieve ranges are reserved and what are done).

@ Joe O, perhaps the ranges can be posted without the date. So people do not start taking-over other people's ranges. or prevent users from getting credit for factors if the range was not assigned to them.

Actually if they looked at the date, it might give them a reason not to take matters into their own hands. Perhaps my example was not the best. Let me modify it to reflect the most recent incident.
So we have an old range that the user has agreed to give up and we reassign it to someone who promises to do it quickly:

But someone decides that the range is lagging too far behind the current ranges. They do this based on the Min and Max numbers not on the date. If they did look at the date, they would see that it had been reassigned today. Maybe they do look at the date, but they think that they can get it done more quickly, or maybe they just want to do it! So they start on it and submit the factors as they find them. Again, the person assigned to take over the old range waits until they are done before submitting. Same result, no credit, and a very upset siever.
