Test it

Test your range for primes by using LLR.

Report in

When you are finished with your tests you'll send the lresults.txt to paulunderwood@mindless.com. Then he'll take care of the rest. Remember to write your username and what range you have completed. Just in case.

Then, if you want to continue, just repeat the whole process.
