The more factors the better, and these are "premium" assignments (can't run mfaktc 0.20 on them, making them pure CPU) 
Full of envy :razz:, and channeling my inner RDS: if that was CPU work, then it is a big CPU resources waste... Except if they were done on very (but I mean VERY) old hardware that can't do LL nor DC and neither it has enough RAM to do P1. Which I don't believe, given the (very) short time it took, two months for 2k assignments, at such low exponent, "mid to top" range CPU was used. Or more small machines, but with just a cheap stick of RAM (novadays) you can use that old hardware more efficient (doing P1 or factoring aliquots).
From the time spent, you may have a midtoprange GPU and you used normal mfaktc/o, in which case I congratulate you! (@clocker: please be advised that those are exponents over 1 million, therefore in the range of normal mfaktX programs). OTOH, if you like to do quite lowexpo assignments, you can ask Oliver for the "bcp" version, which can TF expos from 2k to 1M (most of them at 6162 bits right now). Actually, that would also be a a waste, due to the huge amount of ECM done to such exponents, theoretically they won't have any factors below 150 bits or so (50 decimal digits).

They can't harness the major boost of GPU sieving is what I should have said. 24 GHD/Day on these vs. 146 GHD/Day for more aptly suited assignments on my 460. 
Thanks c10ck3r. :smile:
I wish I had that kind of CPU power! You're right, I use mfakto on my prettypoor GPU. I would contribute to GPU72, but it takes longer to work on those higher assignments than I like. I know that working on these cleared exponents isn't the best use of computing power, but I have enjoyed working on this range very much. Another two factors found! That's 6 factors in about three days. EDIT: GPU sieving does seem possible with mfakto on these assignments, but it is far poorer than CPU sieving. I get about 18 GHzD with GPU sieving versus 32 with CPU.

I guess mfakto is more suited for low exponents. 4,067,831 63 to 64 160 GHz days, LL range 185 GHz days on my low end 7770.

[QUOTE=Jayder;350598]I know that working on these cleared exponents isn't the best use of computing power,[/QUOTE][I]On the contrary[/I]; as long as what you do is contributory, not needlessly duplicative or poaching, and is something you enjoy, it is [U]exactly[/U] the best use of your computing power.

Thank you cheesehead. Actually, I already make great use of that amazing site! Unfortunately, it seems that figuring out what exponent range and bit level my GPU is best suited for working on is a bit more difficult. I suppose the only current way to do that is through a lot of manual testing and retesting.
I've found another 11 factors since my last posting! I would post them here, but it seems the website is having problems at the moment, and I don't want to fill up this thread with small factors. If through ECM I land a big enough one to rival Jwb52z, I'll be sure to post it.

Wow, that´s a really nice one!
But you´ve not reported it yet, did you? It doesn´t appear as Factored, on Primenet pages. 
The reason is that the manual results page won't accept it. George has been advised. There will be more of these. It takes quite a few curves, somewhere in the order of 6 to 7 thousand, should I count them. No biggie, just takes time and in time I'll move this onto all cores. At 15 000 curves per week, I should find a bunch of these.
Crunch on folks, happy hunting! 
[QUOTE=PageFault;378928]The reason is that the manual results page won't accept it. [/QUOTE]
I don´t see any reason why that should happen, apart from the periodic glitches experienced by Primenet. Try resubmitting the result, as you may happen to have tried during a Primenet outage. They´ve been rather frequent lately, unfortunately. 
An interesting one came up today:

I wonder how long until I work through to the next bound ... 
in contrast to your rough [I]k[/I]s I've some smoothies here:

Those are very smooth, nice finds. I assume they are P1, Stage 1 factors? I have one from a few years back, somewhere in a backup.
I'm seeing my ECM finds to be all rough, although my data is lacking. Crunch on, happy hunting!

After months of dry ECM spell... [edit: actually, I would be better with some TF here, hehe, the factor is only 66 bits!] 
[QUOTE=PageFault;387950]Those are very smooth, nice finds. I assume they are P1, Stage 1 factors? I have one from a few years back, somewhere in a backup.

yep, they are found with P1.
