    Mersenne: Project shutdown.

    I regret inform that unfortunately I have no further possibility of engaging in and maintaining the project. Therefore, I decided to turn it off. I'm sorry that it did not give this information before, but I was hoping that maybe is possible to do something so that this did not happen. I would also like to thank all the volunteers and the BOINC community for your support. I also encourage everyone to continue supported other BOINC projects, and those particularly interested in the subject of Mersenne numbers, to the GIMPS project. At this site you can find all the divider from the database project. It will remain available for some time. Once again, I would like to thank all of you and good luck. -- Sebastian M. Bobrecki

    No kidding. I was only at the 500k MM. Boo!
    The state or, to make matters more concrete, the government consists of a gang of men exactly like you and me. They have, taking one with another, no special talent for the business of government; they have only a talent for getting and holding office. Their principal device to that end is to search out groups who pant and pine for something they cant get, and to promise to give it to them. Nine times out of ten that promise is worth nothing. The tenth time it is made good by looting A to satisfy B. In other words, government is a broker in pillage, and every election is a sort of advanced auction on stolen goods. - H.L. Mencken

    Well, 14.3 Ml for me and a permanent #2 ranking I guess. A least that's one Top-10 that'll be a Sticky.

    How about a little warning? Like say, give us a week or two to bang out a few MMs or send out a request for funds? See if you get a few bucks. Dope.
