The interval of primes per work-unit has been decreased from 5000 to 2000, so each task should take roughly half as much time. Please let me know if you encounter any issues.

Hi Daniel!

So far I've done about 120 of the new tasks, and there have not been any errors or other mishaps, so they seem to behave well! :-)

I'm a bit worried though as none of all 120 tasks have been validated yet, although they where computed about 12 hours ago.
It's hard to be absolutely sure that the tasks are free from any problems before having them validated.

update:
260+ tasks done, and 40+ validated.
No errors or invalids so far! :-)
The new tasks takes about 40-45% of the normal time.

Hi Gunnar,

Happy to hear everything's working! I can confirm that there haven't been any failed validations so far, and the assimilator has been incorporating results without a hitch.

And happy pi day!
