More people were killed by lightning, a shark, hippo, crocodiles and elephants or hit the lotto, than found a GCW prime.

I am sorry Stefan, my post was not meant to scare you. Something got lost in translation.
Full post was in the last ten years only ten GCW primes were found. And what was meant you have a better chance of getting hit by lightning or killed by a shark or hippo than finding a GCW prime
Not that a hippo or shark was under your bed silly man..
Nor that I did not want anyone to find a GCW prime. I hope some one does. But I got 10$ that says no one will find one this challenge. Very rare prime to find.
But thanks for stopping by the forum,. next time you're by don't be shy, post up and say hi!

.....If it is like other WCG subprojects, it may magically reset its progress percentage shortly before the apparent finish. Do you have more info on it, beyond what "Research Overview" is showing?
No, no further info, (apart from the progress bar), but SCC dried up only a few weeks later than expected, and as Markfw and zzuupp have attested to, TB tasks are difficult to come by, so while there is currently a better supply of tasks, I'm not taking any chances. :)

Remember, if you set your clocks forward last night, the race ends "an hour" later than it started!

(And if you didn't set your clocks forward last night, maybe you should do that now? ;))

Wow, I just noticed the time change, lol. Thank goodness for internet time and auto-time-setting devices.

I show 1 "inconclusive" on my machine. I'm pretty sure it's the wing man since they have 5 invalids and my machine has none....

Thanks for the stats :D

I'd 'like' or react to some of the posts above but it seems I'm no longer able to, weird.

It might be because you don't have 25 posts. If that's not it, post in Forum Issues.
