No one knows more than 3,014,991 digits of Sk>0{(-1)k (k1/k - 1)} . Let's find 5,000,000!
To find that many digits you need a lot of computer time! Computers must remain running for a long time or be very fast. I've been running my present small cluster for long periods of time as documented at Try to Beat these MRB constant Records. With your support, I can use the MRB constant super computers to make many new records!!!!!

At the bottom of this post is the progress of my present attempt at calculating a more modest 4 million digits of the MRB constant with my 6 core computer. The MRB constant supercomputer should be about eight times faster!!!!

Hi. I am Wikipedia listed amateur mathematician 
Marvin Ray Burns.

I spend all of my free time looking for anything new in math. I believe the world is bettered by knowledge, and I add knowledge to it that way! One search to add to the world's knowledge base, I've been engaged in since 1999, is calculating the digits of the MRB constant. You can see my progress here  . I am at my limit on what I can do with my present computers. I am asking for a very special one to add to my small cluster. This one  added to my present cluster to enable me to calculate 5,000,000 digits of the MRB constant!!

Examples of speed records ,in seconds, of calculating digits of the MRB constant with my present computers:
Here is a quote I got for the new MRB constant supercomputer:

I really need the RAM on this computer! Calculating the first 40,000 digits of the Integral analog of the MRB constant through known algorithms is impossible with my present computer! See the end of
"Try to beat these MRB constant records!" at http://community.wolfram.com/groups/-/m/t/366628?p_p_auth=yK5rZ9PP .

I need all the other options in this system too. I need the multi-cores for calculating the digits of the MRB constant. And I need the GPUs for CUDA® programming that will greatly speed up my calculations!
