Anyone knows about primegrid
I see the site http://primegrid.com/ . In this site they run project like NFSNET for factoring a RSA challenge number.But they are not mentinoning algorithm they are used.I hope they are using GGNFS implementations.
Anyone knows about it?

So, the obvious question: if you need a bunch of volunteers to test your code, and you have zero time to come up with something, and the something has to be interesting, what should you do? jasonp PS: NFS happens not to be an option with PrimeGrid, because of the data storage needs. ECM is not an option either, because the ECM that people care about requires even more memory in the client than an NFS siever.
