    beslade, aka Brucifer. He made a team change to storm, a PrimeGrid-only team.
    And not without success: he discovered three primes since.

    We've had 21 of the 28 days of this challenge so far, and in those twenty-one days no less then 356 primes have been discovered.
    BarryAZ of BOINC Synergy discovered a BOINC: TRP prime 9221·211392194-1 of no less then 3,429,397 digits, earning him 51879.546624003 credit, plus the red (highest single score) and green (highest total score) jerseys. boss still leads for the yellow jersey with a comfortable score of 25 primes, ten more then closest opponent, penguin.

    317 of these primes have been double-checked, of which no less than 36 by Vaughan alone, ten more then his closest opponent, KajakDC.

    I allowed my TSC clients to die by failing to top-up my account overnight. I'd already spent over USD3000 trying to find as many primes and large if possible but its pointless versus boss who is running so many TSC T4 GPUs I lost count.

    Now running a dozen TSC clients plus a handful of AWS Platinum Xeons and my pharm.

    Tour de Primes is almost over. I haven't found any primes, but I double checked 3 so far, and bumped up my ranking on the team a couple of spots. Also got >10M credits in Primegrid within a month, so it's been quite a productive run for my machine.

    Congratulations Vaughan!
    I didn't get any, but at least I got another amethyst badge. All good fun!
