Hi team,
After a time crunching for you, I dediced to donate my cpu time to other projects.
Unfortunately, there is no clear goal with Wilson Primes (which is the science of this?) and the others are over since quite long time ago....
Could you please let us know why shall we keep crunching primes? When does it end?
Thx for your repliesĀ”

KR,

Dear Guiri-1

First of all thank you very much for your contribution.

As you know, in the last months we're submitting only wilson wus. With our algorithm we're near to the end of this project. We need to recode it in order to allow the search in higher numbers. We're right now in this process, speedup and improve.

At this moment we have not found next wilson prime, although it was expected to be founded (in theory ) in the range we're working.

I understand that finding the next wilson prime couldn't be very much exciting :).

In the following weeks we will launch a new biosoft job, the bindsurf team is working in the porting to windows CUDA and a new application will be launch in the next weeks.

Regards

Hi,

Thx for this fast reply, I understand now.
However is still difficult to find a deep explanation on the site why and for this is important.
I need to convince some colleges to join ibercivis but can't offer a good reason...

KR,

Im afraid I finally detached from this project, as no detailed info can be found at all.
Does someone know another interesting one?

Yes, I detached too :( I don't want to waste my computer's time in a project that the own admins don't care about.
