Self-assign is the process of obtaining a desired exponent and worktype, and being assigned such by the PrimeNet server.

The steps to self-assign an exponent are (in order):

  • The user chooses an exponent and checks for availability (by checking the status via a PrimeNet report).
  • The exponent is placed in a worktodo.add file, along with the properly formatted worktype entry.
  • The user causes Prime95 to read the worktodo.add file (usually by stopping and continuing the work in progress).
  • The user then does a forced communication with PrimeNet. This will result the assignment of an assignment ID.
  • The user then checks the worktodo.txt file for any exponent that does not have an assignment ID and removes them.
