New record penultimate prime factor
NFS@Home has found a new record penultimate prime factor! 7,889M, which is a portion of the number 7^889+1, splits into 151-digit and 160-digit prime factors. This 151-digit prime factor beats the old record, a 147-digit prime factor of 12^293+1. Congrats to all contributors who helped set this new Cunningham project record!

Change NFS@Home to use SSL
I have modified NFS@Home to use SSL. As a result, the project URL has changed from to If you see problems as a result of this change, you may need to remove then reattach the project. Old http links will continue to work.

Two new apps launched
Two new apps have been launched, lasievee_small and lasievef_small. As the numbers we factor become larger, the lasieved app has largely become inadequate while the lasievee app queue has grown very long. In an attempt to compensate, job memory use and runtime has crept upward to stretch the capability of the apps. To alleviate these issues, these new apps will provide additional flexibility to choose the app most appropriate to the size of the number being factored while keeping memory use and runtime more reasonable. If you have modified your project preferences to run only specific applications, you may want to adjust your settings to enable these new apps. Thanks for your contributions to NFS@Home!

BOINC Pentathlon
Welcome BOINC Pentathlon participants. Note that if you haven't participated in NFS@Home recently and are having trouble queuing work, then complete a few workunits and send them back. The server doesn't send much work to machines that haven't returned any recently.
