Hi Sergei,

I noticed the command line changed today. The previous command line was pretty self-explanatory. Just wondering what the new command does. Here is an example of one of mine:

/lpr 14196036660 14196089144 /task_size 399970106980

Thank you,
Kellen

It's a new type of work units (I call them "large prime WUs"). The search now goes through all primes between first and second number in the command line and looks for amicable numbers of the form "n*p" where p is a prime from this range and n*p < 1020.

Thank you for the description of what is happening and for the lightning fast response. I look forward to seeing how many amicable numbers are found in this portion of the search :)

Regards,
