    New distributed Computing effort

    That's right I started the official LJR Merseene Prime team.

    Currently I only have my Windows Laptop crunching primes. This isn't as useful as G@H for mankind, but there is a 100.000 bucks reward pool, and the whole thing is open source.

    I'll post more information later...
