Mersenneforum.org has been overflowing off and on all day today. I couldn't get to it from roughly 8 a.m. to 9 a.m. U.S. central time.

More bandwidth anyone?

We need more exponents to be assigned for double-checking in the 10.7M range... with all the new accounts, exponents are getting assigned pretty quickly.

Congratulations to Michael, George, Scott and all GIMPSters who contribute to GIMPS. I have a question. Does anyone know what the bulk of the new machines are since p4's have alot more firepower. if the new machines are p4's we should see the sustained throughput starting spike in about 3 weeks.
THANKS LARRY

Stats over the past 24 hours (2 Dec 22:00 - 3 Dec 22:00)

3055 New Machines

1117 P4's
1131 Athlons
450 PIII ... etc


3182 New Assignments

154 Factoring
2314 LL
714 DC


Edit: I think it will be interesting to see the stats in 60+ days to see how many accounts/machines fall off.

Roughly an even split between Athlons and P4s for the most part...

Experience at ars indicates 80 - 90 % will vanish within a few weeks of this type of recruitment. This isn't necessarily bad given the perspective of large team based crunching, as the remainder often catch the bug and wind up getting ten more machines. Of course the same thing is happening with TPR right now. Of the M39 casuals, perhaps two or three remain - most never completed the first test.

Actually there's an odd thing with the P3s...

From Nov 30 to Dec 2 we suddenly lost about 350 P3s (6350 -> 6000). I'm guessing there's a December gauntlet to finish up SETI@Home or something, and they all picked up and moved. But with the post-announcement spike we're back up to 6500+ P3s right now and increasing.

One of the main reasons I wrote the New to GIMPS? Start here!!! piece was to see if it would change the percentage of people that stayed to complete at least one exponent compared to previous dramatic increases in active accounts.

At least judging from the number of views the the thread has received there will hopefully be a small but measurable effect.
