Home page says:

"YAFU is a alpha project, which main goal is it to test the latest Boinc server code for bugs. Please report any error which you find in the webpages in the forum.
In parallel to this it factorize numbers of 80-110 digit length which needs to be factored. You can participate by downloading and running a free program on your computer."

So, is this just to test the BOINC server code?

If so, why do you need results returned so quickly?

I'm perfectly happy testing new server code, especially if it doesn't involve the pointless uppercase app, but combining testing with 'urgent' work is never going to work.

Are you testing, or are you factorizing as a priority?

Cheers,

Al.
