On this side of the pond, I have no specific factor to report, but I just reported in a streak of 11 successes in 159 TF73 attempts on consecutive candidates from 90505267 to 90512179.

Actually, it's only a 1133digit cofactor, you're forgetting the 54digit largest factor 568630647535356955169033410940867804839360742060818433 And not "much" more efficient, since F12 itself is 1234 digits long. In any case, if you supply the list of known factors in double quotes at the end of the ECM2= line, then mprime has all the information it needs and presumably does its work in the most efficient way possible. I don't know if the algorithm works faster on the original number or the cofactor.

The remaining 295digit cofactor is composite.

M1471 is now fully factored. I ran a systematic check via a screenscraping script just now, comparing all factors for exponents below 10,000 and found this new factor. Someone out there is finding large new factors for very small Mersenne exponents, independently of GIMPS. I guess it's worthwhile to rerun the script every few weeks or so, going forward. Just a month ago, I ran a systematic crosscheck of exponents under 1 million (prompted by [URL="http://mersenneforum.org/showthread.php?t=22501"]this thread[/URL]), and synchronized the data on both FactorDB and GIMPS. Obviously, the new factors for M1471 and M1489 were reported to FactorDB more recently than this.

I've seen this in some of my PM1 tests, but usually much lower.[/QUOTE][url=http://www.mersennewiki.org/index.php/BrentSuyama_extension]BrentSuyama extension[/url]  It potentially allows finding some types of factors outside the expected B1/B2 bounds for P1, but requires generous amounts of RAM. Values can be up to 12 if lots of RAM available, 6 if less RAM available (and I think sometimes it could be 3(?) but don't quote me on that).
To get E=12 on current ~80M range exponents you'll need something in the order of ~10GB allocated to P1.

Is recording the sigma useful in general? Primenet doesn't store it. Should it?
FactorDB lets you report it. Is it worth going through old results.txt files and reporting B1, B2, sigma for factors of a certain size for sufficiently small exponents?

I got bored and decided to rerun P1 on exponents with only stage 1 done:
[QUOTE][Sun Feb 18 10:47:26 2018] P1 found a factor in stage #2, B1=800000, B2=12500000, E=12. UID: ixfd64/dchiapro, M47501749 has a factor: 793528449260403299636240009 (P1, B1=800000, B2=12500000, E=12)[/QUOTE] I'm glad the effort turned out to be worthwhile! 
Nothing spectacular, but a nice result.
[url]http://www.mersenne.ca/exponent/52660711[/url] 52660711 has a factor 90657772754508534123079 76.3 bits, found via P1 (stage 2?) This was marked as poorly P1'ed before by Mersenne.ca. (b1=855,000,b2=) I spent 1.1 GHz/days. 1 bad LL and 2 more spent 100 GHz/days [B][U]each[/U][/B]. The bad LL was done by the user that did the initial P1 back in 2011. And over 33 GHz/days of additional TF was done after the initial P1. :picard:

[QUOTE=GP2;479455]What are the criteria for noteworthiness?[/QUOTE]
Finding the first factor of a Mersenne number is the general man's successs (German: "der Erfolg des kleinen/gemeinen Mannes", maybe knows how to translate this a bit better). So I wouldn't put too many restrictions on that. While I feel that every factor about 100 bit is somewhat noteworthy, that doesn't mean everybody should post those factors, and it doesn't mean that this is a requirement, either.
