request: always include "from" in trial-factoring results
 
I'd like to request that Prime95 outputs the starting bit-depth for trial factoring to screen and to results.txt -- right now it (usually) just says:[quote]UID: <userid>/<compid>, M<exponent> no factor to 2^67, WZ1: <residue>[/quote]instead of:[quote]UID: <userid>/<compid>, M<exponent> no factor [b]from 2^60[/b] to 2^67, WZ1: <residue>[/quote]I have seen the latter format in some instances, so the code must be there just buried in an if statement somehow. Please make it always output the starting bit-depth.

Use of "from..." in trial factoring tests
 
This request is similar to my comment about using FROM in trial factoring in this thread...

I support it's use in the output like this too as well as at each bit depth DURING the test. A fast computer will probably only waste a few extra nanoseconds to write the "from" part.
