... you worry about whether Prime95 will start thrashing while you're editing your latest contribution to the "It was a dark and stormy night ..." thread.

You agonize over wheter to maximize the prime95 window and give it a higher priority, or minimize it so it doesn't have to waste cycles updating the screen. To minimize or not to minimize, that is the question.

You've waited for a year to be invited to beta test Climate Prediction Net only to feel guilty when asked becuase you don't want to take away from GIMPS.

When you leave your computer for a while, you make sure your brower is on a quite web page (such as www.mersenneforum.org) so your computer doesn't waster cycles displaying animated gifs, run java, etc.

You're distressed at having to reinstall Windows because you botched the migration to the new mobo and Barton, but only because of the lost time from Prime95.

You're distressed at even having to restart Windows periodically, because of the lost Prime95 time!

You currently have an entry in Task Manager that looks like this:

Prime95.exe 688 99 2175:16:47 11,748K

You know Prime95.exe has been running for over 2000 hours but you will not even load Task Manager to have a look at the numbers because that would waste cycles!

You just might be addicted to GIMPS if...


...you turn off Smooth Scroll for internet explorer.

(I wonder how many people are going to turn off Smooth Scroll after seeing that :D ?)

...you run text-mode Linux.

...you rename the START menu to the GIMPS menu.

...you bought a 1GbDDR stick just for P-1 stage for a 1.5% extra chance of clearing an exponent without LL :? .

...you don’t even have a monitor, keyboard, or mouse for fearing that you might be tempted to steal some of Prime95's cycles, because you save your money for more monitor less machines. 8)

...you buy CPU's from Intel claiming that you are a retailer , but you are really just using them for Prime95 :D .

...you come up with multiple Red-Neck GIMPS jokes for the same post not able to wait untill tomorrow to post your next one :mrgreen: .
