Great to see 25 USA crunchers on PrimeGrid yesterday. But there could be more, especially some of our regular challenge participants.

Also, I see 9 guests visiting as I type. Come on, join the team and join the challenge.

Make sure you've selected the GFN18, 19 and 20 apps if you want to participate, and of course be on the team. :cool:

We're holding 14th. Let's keep going!

We're approaching the end. It may take a few days to get the final standings, in the meantime if you have work in the queue you don't care about finishing, project admins are requesting you abort:

At the Conclusion of the Challenge

  • We kindly ask users "moving on" to ABORT their WU's instead of DETACHING, RESETTING, or PAUSING.

    ABORTING WU's alows them to be recycled immediately; thus a much faster "clean up" to the end of a challenge. DETACHING, RESETTING, and PAUSING WU's causes them to remain in limbo until they EXPIRE. Therefore, we must wait until WU's expire to send them out to be completed.

    Please consider either completing what's in the queue or ABORTING them. Thank you. :)

I can't believe I forgot to follow up on this, but the challenge is over. It may yet take a few days for the entire ranking to be verified, but for now we finished 15th! That's a great result on this project where historically we've struggled. Congrats everyone for this accomplishment!
