February 2016 Competitions: what can we do in a mere 29 days (Yes, it is a leap day year!) ?
February 01 to February 29 - Tour de Primes 2016
PrimeGrid (the project) organises a month-long hunt for primes
, and Vaughan is in the race (actualy slipping back further and further now) for the red jersey
! And that's just one of the jerseys to be won (the one for the biggest prime of the month)....There's also a yellow jersey
for the one with the most primes -Vaughan still being 5th there now- and a green
for points (prime score) with Vaughan in 9th position. Later, February 19th, a red polka dot jersey
will be given for that days best score.
