Fibonacci Primes

My fibonacci probable prime finder, has been running for over a year of CPU time. I am sure that you are all as excited as I am about this.

So here's a puzzle for you: if you were to start running your FibProbPrimeFinder on a new computer, say one running at 3GHz, how long would it take the new computer to overtake the old one? One thing your stats page is missing is a description of the computer running the program.

Good question
Good question. The machine it is running on is a Celeron Pentium 3 566Mhz. I have no idea how long it would take a 3Ghz machine to over take it, but I am sure it would be less than a year. Obviously the only bottleneck for this program is the CPU.

On another note I have been toying around with the idea of making it distributed, and passing clients out to trusted friends. It has a low priority on my list of things to do, so don't expect to see it tomorrow.

Lastly I will add the computer type to my web page.

Re: Good question
The real answer is that it doesn't have to "overtake" the old one, just stop it, find out where it is, move it and start back up. Glad I could solve that one for you!!

you know who.
