Exclamation Milestones Report

The Milestones Report seems to have acquired a glitch - exponent double-check has now completed the 54-million range, but the report still has a redundant entry of:

"Countdown to verifying all tests below 54 million: "

It's a normal part of the project. This is actually nothing new. This happens with every milestone countdown on that page. When it comes to milestones, the page doesn't update automatically but instead must be updated manually by a human staff of the project.

See the link below for an Internet Archive capture of the page from September 2018, which shows the same situation with the 45 million DC milestone.

That is correct. Parts of the page are automated, but not that. The DC milestone list in the bottom half of the page is the same.

Did we reach the 101M Milestone or is it a error in the Querry?

You are doing 101M - 101M in your querry and milestone report says 68 remaining still.

Actually the link from the GIMPS milestones report page, is wrong in all 3 first pass milestones. All 3, starts at 101M, for some weird reason :)

The human in question is me. I try to anticipate when the milestone will be crossed and I have a new page ready with the edits, but sometimes it's hard to predict. Like, the last remaining exponent may get poached by someone just as an assignment expires. Or sometimes it expires and someone else gets it and then it's a few more days...

Or, like in this case, I was on vacation. LOL
