I've attached with my old crappy 32 bit AMD. It won't contribute much, but atleast I'm participating!

Now if I could only get my hands on my girlfriend's brand new 64bit dual core laptop!

I believe it's called: "I'm pretty good with PC's. Want me to 'tune' it for you?"

You got that all wrong... Remember: Girls come and go, primes are forever.

After half a hour of clicking various links, I see that I found 7 primes,
along with scoring 14 points for BOINCstats. Any chance of a pointer
as to which primes I found, and what small part they play in the PSP
sieving project?

I suspect you attached PrimeGrid and just ran it as is without turning off any projects? PrimeGrid has a lot of different sub-projects to choose from and the default setting is you run all. You can choose which to run from your account on the project pages.

However, if you did choose only "Prime Sierpinski Project (Sieve)", then you must have found 7 factors, not primes, as we do not find primes with sieving.

I'm not too familiar with the statistics on the PrimeGrid pages, but I know there are a lot of helpful people on their message boards... Maybe you can get more help there?
