... but not in the way you think I mean :-)

I've now completed 20753 Proth tasks without finding a prime.

From a "General Discussions" thread the average is normally somewhere between 4000 and 7500 so I was wondering if anyone can remember their first prime taking longer to find?

Hi Ian

I don't know how many tasks I did to get my first prime. The first I heard of it was an email from John to say that I'd found a reportable prime. Further investigation revealed that I'd been double checker on a fair few before that.

If it helps I've had a dry patch or two and I think I recently did coming up to 20k tasks without finding a prime. I also had 8 in one month . Roadrunner was pretty unlucky earlier in the year.

I hope it will be like London busses for you (ie that you wait for ages but then lots come all at once.)

Cheers!

Thanks. We shall see now, I've just got my first one :-)

For the record it came after around 21700 completed tasks. Not quite 1 in 4500.

I remember that my first reportable proth prime was the first workunit I crunched on a new llrnet port,
sometimes you have to be lucky to find a prime

good luck!

I had found my first prime just after 900 Proth tasks done. Have I been a lucky one? Let us see, going to crunch more to see when I find my second prime.

Dear Primefinder,



Congratulations! Our records indicate that a computer registered by you has
found a unique prime number. This computer is running BOINC, is attached to
the PrimeGrid project, and is assigned to the Proth Prime Search. What makes
this prime unique is that it's large enough to enter the Top 5000 List in Chris Caldwell's
The Largest Known Primes Database.

Since you are the finder, you will be credited with the discovery. You have two options
to report the prime.

PrimeGrid can report the prime on your behalf.
You can manually report the prime yourself.

If you'd like PrimeGrid to report the prime, please edit your PrimeGrid preferences
page (http://www.primegrid.com/prefs.php?subset=project) to give permission to
submit. Name and surname are required by the Prime Pages to report primes.
Please reply to this email notifying us of the update.

If you'd like to manually report the prime yourself, please follow the directions provided here:

http://www.primegrid.com/wiki/doku.php?id=how_to_report_a_prime

Pay close attention to the Crediting Section so proper credit can be awarded. This prime
should be credited to: Proth Prime Search Extended. Additionally, since this is a proth
prime, make sure you add the Descriptive Data section to your Proof-Code.

http://www.primegrid.com/wiki/doku.php?id=openpfgw

After completing the Descriptive Data section, please reply to this email with a link to your
new Proof-Code. Once it's confirmed, we'll email you your prime number so that you can complete
the prime registration.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me and we will surely resolve any
problem. If you do not wish to publish your prime, let me know and we will register the prime
anonymously.

Once again, congratulations on your find and welcome to the Top 5000 List!

Thank you for participating in PrimeGrid.

John Blazek of PrimeGrid

Please pay close attention to the extra instructions for primes from
the Proth Prime Search. :)

NOTE: You will have 19 days to respond. Afterwards we notify the double checker
and allow them the opportunity to report. If they do not wish to report, the prime will
be assigned to an anonymous account.


Do I win? Is there a way to see what spot this is in? Probably 4999th position, but am curious.

Later I received a link to a page which said"

I have found my second prime after crunching 2,400 Proth tasks. It seems that I find primes 1:1200 tasks. Anyone has the same ratio?

I have bittersweet luck.

Good news: after 12500 WUs, I have three primes.

Bad news: two are freak rediscoveries, one is a double-check. I have yet to find a PPS and claim it as mine.

What is the difference between initial finder and double-checkers?

Notice how WUs you get are suffixed with a number? e.g., pps_llr_43829329_0. If this number is _0 and the WU is prime, you're the initial finder. If it's greater than _0, you're a double-checker. Generally the number means you're the (n+1)th person to process that WU. PPS only needs agreement between two people, so if you're not _0 or _1, it means a third person's client screwed up and had to drop it.

Also (more importantly) initial finders get credit for their finding on the Top 5000. Double-checkers don't.

I thought the difference was determine by whomever returned the prime first. That is, I returned my copy (_0 or _1) before the other guy.

That is correct.

Getting the _0 WU simply means you got assigned the WU first, so theoretically you have a *slightly* better chance of completing and returning it before the _1 WU (assuming identical machines crunching).
