NFS@Home has completed 12,271-, a Cunningham More Wanted number. It factors into 97-digit and 138-digit prime numbers. Thanks to larger than expected sieving contributions we are a little behind in postprocessing, but will catch up soon! Thanks for your continued help, and keep it up!

NFS@Home has completed 2,1028+, another Cunningham Most Wanted number. It factors into 74-digit and 168-digit prime numbers. We have nearly completed the sieving of 12,271+ and 12,271-. In a change of pace, we are going to factor two large XYYXF numbers then return to the Cunningham project. Thanks for you continued help!

This is a result of the too short workunits training the BOINC client to expect them to be short. It should resolve itself shortly. Sorry about that.

Two more Cunningham Most Wanted numbers are factored. 2,989+, a three way split, is the product of 76-digit, 79-digit, and 96-digit prime numbers. 2,991+ is the product of 75-digit and 150-digit prime numbers. Let's keep going!

Please check now to see if logins work with Windows XP using Chrome or IE 8. Hopefully it is fixed.

Due to a planned electrical upgrade in the data center, the NFS@Home project will be offline on Saturday, March 12. I am told the upgrade should be completed by the end of the day. We apologize for any inconvenience.

One more Cunningham Most Wanted number is factored. The composite cofactor of 10,298+ is the product of 128-digit and 139-digit prime numbers. In addition to finishing up 2,1285-, we are currently working on the two easier numbers 5,419- and 5,419+. Thanks again for your help!

Post:
From the discussion at the BOINC forum, it appears that NFS@Home is the lowest priority. Have you tried adding, say, Einstein@Home and see if it is fetched before NFS@Home?

I looked into this more, and apparently the SSL certificate that the site uses isn't supported in Windows XP. The workaround is to use Firefox, which implements its own SSL rather than relying on WinXP.

Perhaps your root certificates need to up updated. Do you have automatic updating turned on?

Logins now use SSL, but it appears that your browser does not recognize the root certificate used on the site. What OS and browser are you using?

I updated the project to the latest version of BOINC. As part of this, I also enabled SSL on the server. Please let me know if you run into any new issues. Thanks for your assistance!

Post:
The server will be taken offline late tomorrow (Thursday) morning (PST) for relocation to a different data center. I anticipate that it will be back online Friday afternoon, so I expect downtime of a little over a day. Be sure to stock up on workunits for the outage. Thanks again for your contributions!
