New AP24

A new AP24 (Arithmetic Progression of 24 primes) has been found. The finder is Tina Kent (Penguirl) of the United States. She is a member of Team MacNN.

The AP24 was returned on 20 Jul 2009 15:58:44 UTC. It was found by a Power Macintosh running OS X. It took about 71 minutes 33 seconds to process the WU (each WU tests 3 progression differences).

The progression is written as 20909681071069667+234797*23#*n for n=0..23. Credits are as follows:

Finder: Tina Kent
Project: PrimeGrid
Program: AP26

AP26 was written by Jaroslaw Wroblewski and adapted to BOINC by Geoff Reynolds.

The AP24 will be listed in Jens Kruse Andersen's Primes in Arithmetic Progression Records page under the section(s):

All known AP24 and AP25

Thank you for the recognition Billy, that is very thoughtful of you! I am thrilled that I was able to make this contribution to the PrimeGrid project, but I am even more proud of what we as Team MacNN contribute as a whole. Were it not for other team members I probably wouldn't even know that PrimeGrid has PPC/OS X work, and you all have been very helpful in many other ways too.

Happy crunching teammates!
Tina

Thank you Shaktai! Yes I know exactly what you mean. I have a DP G5 that I keep running year round but it gets very trying in the summertime, even my G4 iMac seems to put out a lot of heat. The only one that doesn't is my PowerBook but it kills fans about every year even with a cooler pad beneath it (1.67 G4) and now that AppleCare has expired it's going to be a cool weather only cruncher.

Hmmm, and here I was depending on all those points for my retirement. Depresssing, simply depressing....

Oh well, put my iMac back to work on Rosetta, but my Quad core i7 Dell has a fried ethernet port thanks to a lightning strike (fried my iMac ethernet and DSL modem as well but the iMac has airport wireless so it is back up.) Gonna be a while before that monster is crunching again.
