True, but a record of who has done how much work where is never a bad thing. 
What are the chances two people will run exactly the same curve? Extremely small?

I know it's not the largest factor on here but it's probably the one I've spent the most time on and actually succeeded :) 
Good find. I also take wave front first time exponents to 79 before assigning them to really old machines… For newer computers it makes sense to just run the LL test.

Remember M90679, we are even :smile:. But, if you wish take any of "mine exponents" and find a factor, I will only be happy. Cheers and keep the factors coming. 
[QUOTE=Gordon;436501]Nice find, a lot of time saved for the project :smile:[/QUOTE]
Thank you, and here's another I just found on my screen: P1 found a factor in stage #1, B1=660000. UID: Jwb52z/Clay, M78866311 has a factor: 122507948640290214554639 (P1, B1=660000) 76.697 bits. 
3607 is down
I thought that sub 10K are impossible to factor, but here it is:
"M3607 has a factor 162160065980366340636967897279169391509046358190713" (~167 bits). Unfortunately, the cofactor is not PRP :smile:. 
Great shot!
Funny enough, in the "history" section of the report, there´s no reference to the bounds used nor the number of curves run. Did you use a B1=1.1e8?

I do not have access to the machine right now (to pull out the log), but it is probably couple of thousand curves.

Ha! Beautiful find!
The difference is so small that it totally confuses James' site, which probably uses \(ceil(log_2(q))\) to calculate the number of bits, and there is not enough precision, or the 64 bits php variable is used, because the size is (wrongly) displayed as 66 bits. :rofl: Anyhow, the right formula to be used should be \(floor(log_2(q))+1\), which also solves the problem when q is a whole power of 2 (for example, 2^2 has 3 bits). That should compensate for the low precision of the calculus (the difference between ceil and floor+1 is only when applied to an integer, and it always works when lower precision, because of the lower precision is done by truncation, in this case. If that is done by rounding, it will not work for numbers close to integers, but smaller than them, like 0.99999, etc). OTOH, the "k" of this factor is in class 175 of both 4620 and 420 classes, so if you used the 4620 (most probable) then you found it quite fast, after only 175/4620 = ~3% of the time, so you should not complain for the low credit given :razz: But if you used 420 classes, you were unlucky son of a gun, you wasted a lot of time for it! edit 2: [code] gp > ceil(log(q)/log(2)) %5 = 67 gp > log(q)/log(2) %6 = 66.00003680557622102416872376 gp > default(realprecision,3) gp > log(q)/log(2) %8 = 66.0 gp > default(realprecision,5) gp > log(q)/log(2) %10 = 66.000 gp > default(realprecision,7) gp > log(q)/log(2) %12 = 66.00004 gp > #binary(q) %13 = 67 [/code](here ceil is used as I know q is not a power of two; please note that pari's internal precision is never smaller than 15 decimals or so, even when you set it smaller, it is only used for printing, and not for calculus; for calculus he always uses his doubles)

[QUOTE=James Heinrich;440756]The site displays 66.000 because it's right :razz:[/QUOTE]
No, it is not. You didn't get my point. If you go for 3 decimals precision, then you should round them up, unless they are already integer, when you have to add 1.000 (this never happens for factors, as they are never a full power of 2). The value you currently display would give the FALSE impression that the factor is 66 bits, when in reality is 67. Therefore, truncation is wrong ("truncation" as in rounding down, or ignoring the other decimals, or floor function, and opposite to rounding up, or ceiling functions). [U][B]You should display 66.001[/B][/U], and in that case we will know is 67 bits. Everything that its fractional is smaller than 0.001 should be displayed as 0.001. But the patch with mousing over is also satisfactory. Not perfect, but satisfactory. edit: Best would be to have it rounded up, AND the patch with mouse hovering. Not all people do mouse hovering there. But if we see it is 66.001, so it is higher than 66, then we can mouse over if we want to see the real value. Never display "integers" unless they are really integers, AND unless they really represent the number of bits. Otherwise the title of the column is very misleading. Float values are ok, everybody knows that 13.123 is 14 bits. But 13.000 is 13 bits. Not 14. 
IMO, "bits" is always an integer and in this case would be 67. The data presently displayed in the column would be more properly be labelled log2(factor) and is correctly output as 66.000.
Of course "log2(factor)" is a lot of characters for a column label. So, perhaps the web page designer is allowed a little leeway in order to make a prettier web page. Maybe "bits[SUP]*[/SUP]" with a footnote explaining the mess or simply "log2" would be an alternative. 
I now display 3 decimal places, unless those 3 show up as ".000" in which case I automatically show as many as needed to have a nonzero as the last digit. In the case of [url=http://www.mersenne.ca/exponent/7090613]M7090613[/url], it now displays "66.00004". Of course the mouseover 12digit precision is still there, and I have added a red asterisk to the column header saying it's really log2(factor) and not real bits.
Does that work for everyone? 
Works to me. Note that the full decimal expansion was also shown in the graphs with the factor bounds, where is (and always was) correct, when mouseover the big dots (there, the expansion is more suggestive, due to the graphical view).
Good job James! (as usual) edit: however :razz: can you make it tooltip, i mean square corners and yellowish background, like the other columns? As opposite of "button" style, with round corners and white background, which it is now. The motivation is not only aesthetic, but the tooltips come instantly when you mouseover. The "button" you just added has a delay (lag) of about half second, which is bothersome, you have to "know" that is there, otherwise you don't wait for it and you lose it.

Let's not reopen the PRP debate right now.[/QUOTE] That was nothing about reopening any debate, and I don't know anything about any "PRP debate". What is there to debate about PRPs? Or you want to say that a ~1500 digits number is difficult to prove prime (or composite), with the hardware and the algorithms we have today? 
[QUOTE=LaurV;443785]That was nothing about reopening any debate, and I don't know anything about any "PRP debate". What is there to debate about PRPs?[/QUOTE]
[STRIKE]I am also mystified. What is being debated about PRP?[/STRIKE] I think the "debate" is about whether a probable prime cofactor means an exponent is truly "fully factored" or not. There was an old thread where people spent dozens of pages arguing vehemently over it. In this case it's a moot point, since this particular prime is easily within range of formal provability using primality certificates issued by primo or similar program. A few weeks ago I started doing ECM on very small exponents with already known factor(s). Currently taking the M5000 range to B1=3,000,000 (i.e., "40 digits"), which means a few thousand curves per exponent. So far I've found new factors for [URL="http://www.mersenne.org/report_exponent/?exp_lo=4957&full=1"]M4957[/URL], [URL="http://www.mersenne.org/report_exponent/?exp_lo=5023&exp_hi=&full=1"]M5023[/URL], and [URL="http://www.mersenne.org/report_exponent/?exp_lo=5233&exp_hi=&full=1"]M5233[/URL] (the latest result). This has been just using Prime95, without GMPECM, but I will soon try that for stage 2. Machines have gotten faster over the years and the time seems ripe to revisit this range in a thorough and systematic way. People have been throwing a lot of effort at the very stubborn M12xx holdouts, but there is some lowhanging fruit in the higher singledigitthousands range. So far I've been using only one core of a machine that's a few years old, but encouraged by this PRP result, I'm going to throw some more cores at it in the cloud. I've also been doing some ECM on alreadyfactored exponents in the 40K and 50K ranges. The most tedious part is creating the "known factors" string at the end of the ECM2= line, but I have a Python script that automates that.
