I've participating in the gimps project on 1 of my PCs for a few months now
to discover some depressing news.  I've only received credit for testing 1
number out of the 3 I've done.  For those of you that don't know 1 number
can take about 2 weeks to test running 24/7 on a P2/266.  

The first thing I thought of when this happened was how d.nets statistics
system works pretty damn well.  Even though it only updates once a day, I've
NEVER looked at it and thought," what the f***?".  It always looks dead on
I'm mainly posting this just to try to trump up some support ofr a Mersenne
prime core for V3 so that we can show a few scientific organizations how
much can be accomplished with all us d.net users. Compared to the few
hundred that GIMPS has.
