PRPNet - Riesel Prime Search (NPLB)
After a nearly 10 month absence of rallies, we figured it's time to have another. The rally will begin Saturday, Feb. 18 at 7 PM GMT and finish 168 hours later on Sat., Feb. 25 at 7 PM GMT.
This time for the first time, the rally will solely be a PRPnet rally as NPLB continues it's transition to mostly PRPnet servers. It will be focusing on our 14th drive, that is k=600-1001 for n>1M, in order for the range to play "catch up" with our 13th drive. That means PRPnet port 2000, which should be in the vicinity of n=1.01M-1.04M during the rally. A prime at that level should come in around 1000th-1500th place in the top-5000 list.
PRPnet config info.:
server = "www.noprimeleftbehind.net"
port = 2000
Or, in terms of a prpclient.ini config line:
Be sure and change your userID to whatever ID you prefer. Most people use their ID here at mersenneforum. It is also best to set the cache to something in the vicinity of 2 to 10 pairs.
The last few rallies, PrimeSearchTeam has been rather dominant. Let's see if we can give them a run for their money this time.
