I think that the article lacks information about practical benefits of the search of prime numbers. I suppose that there are many, but I haven't found anything in the article. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 83.5.17.220 (talk) 15:43, 16 July 2011 (UTC)

There aren't many, if any. It's just for fun and setting records. -Koppapa (talk) 15:54, 16 July 2011 (UTC)

321 prime search[edit]

In the Projects section it says 321 Prime search ended April 22, 2011. As far as I can tell, 321 work is still being handed out, so this seems to be incorrect. Or is the end date meant to refer only to 321 Sieve? -- Toshio Yamaguchi (tlkctb) 00:49, 8 June 2012 (UTC)

Corrected. -- Toshio Yamaguchi (tlkctb) 17:11, 9 June 2012 (UTC)
