Thanks for the link - interesting reading!

Has the present search recovered any unusual/remarkable/record-breaking APs yet?

Out of curiosity:
How are the APs in the list of APs I have found sorted? Not date, that much I can tell.

And what does the second number (65) mean here:

2 65 "BOINC: ...

?

(Not the most pressing questions around, I agree.)

>P.S. Server status page

Yes, but the server status page does not indicate the total number of workunits left. Which would have been a nice feature.

Hi,

Here comes what may be a stupid question.

Some of the APs I have found, have two names attached to them: mine and the other guy. I understand that the relative order of these two names reflects who reported back the task first. Fair enough.

However, two of my APs have only one name attached to them, and it is not mine. It is still listed under "my" APs though.

And yes - "Should Amicable Numbers show amicable pairs discovered by you?" is ticked.

I'm probably misunderstanding something, right?

I see. Thanks!

Is there, then, an easy way to list all the proper divisors of these numbers? (But yes, I can see why you choose to list only the factors.)

Hi,

Pardon me for asking what must be a stupid question. I suppose I'm getting the notation wrong.

Regarding the amicable pair:

22559194686624505630=2*5*7*23*61*99643*2305266221
26660358080018237666=2*7*13*159773*523681*1750751

The factors of 22559194686624505630 do not sum up to 2666035808001823766, and the factors of 26660358080018237666 do not sum up to 22559194686624505630. What, then, makes this pair amicable?

But there will also be CPU tasks for the 10^20 application right from the start, correct?

Sounds fair to me. Thanks for the quick reply.

>Each pair is listed under the name of this pair's discoverer.

Since each work unit is run on two different computers (by two different users), my question is this: if a amicable pair is found, will both users be credited as discoverers? Or only the user who reported it first? (The former would make the most sense to me.)
