Thank you for the win Tutankhamon. Been a long time since I had my first one here back in 2010 https://setiweb.ssl.berkeley.edu/beta/forum_thread.php?id=1779&postid=39190

Seems there are now rules to post ... there weren't on #9

And here's the new "The Last Person To Post Here Wins" thread. (Why, Oh why, did I win again? Because I made the mistake of posting!)

The Last Person To Post Here Wins Thread, general rules:

1. Winner of the last thread starts the new one with a post of these rules.
2. Chooses a future event which triggers the winner, e.g. post number, date-time, and records it privately somehow (yellow sticky, etc.)
3. Everyone has fun posting until the target event is reached.
4. When the target is reached, old winner posts declaration of new winner and also PMs them.
5. Shortly after this a Mod will lock the recently won thread (use the red cross to notify them)*
6. Go to 1.

Generate mersenne prime 54, set as winning number ... oh drat, that is bigger than a int_t64, never mind, maybe the inches between Santa Monica and Chicago on Route 66? That might be too big, but there don't seem to be any mods here to say otherwise ... don't want to attract them ... well I'll come up with something I'm sure ...

Have fun, and keep posting.

Cake is pretty much the answer to everything :-)

You're in luck - I have an unexpectedly free morning and was wondering what to do. I'll get baking - watch out for flying cakes in about an hour ;-)

Thank you Susie - landed safely in the catch net, and consumed.
Well up to your usual standards :-)

You're very welcome on the cake front :-)

The weekend has finally arrived, albeit a little later than planned, but never mind, I'm heading out the door now :-D

Congratz again Gary!
Make the best of it, although the traffic here sometimes makes one believe that the thread goal will never be reached :-)

Especially if the goal is mersenne prime 34 ;-)

I do remember back from my first one how long it took to get up to the number. Traffic is way way down across the BOINC universe. Too bad. Better people here than facepalm.

Hmm...
Anyway I did manage to see the astronomical event of the day. Stuck at traffic lights I could just see the appearance of Jupiter & Venus just above the horizon.

6 more months, and then I will lower my participation in the workforce by 20%.
It will stay that way until I retire for good in a few years time.

Working only 4 days/week will be just perfect.

Nothing to crunch. No WU's left to send.
Tasks ready to send 0

That's not a winning concept.
