It was suggested that ECM often makes more sense on those smaller Mersenne than P1, and yes, there are a lot of lowhanging fruits with t35 done only partially. 1500 B1=1M curves on a 10 core take about 1.5 days and you can be fairly certain you won't miss any factor < 35 digits with that.

Of course it's not prime. All the ECM exponents in the GIMPS database with found factors are not prime either. That section should not exist. [U]Edit[/U]: I think you meant to say it is not a natural prime. Without the "2^" and "1" it has two factors. 37 and 199.

[QUOTE=James Heinrich;603502]Why so old?[/QUOTE]
I am glad you ask this question. On my older systems, 29.x outperforms 30.x. I never run PRP's or certification work. If I don't use it, then I don't need the capability. I sometimes use a 6.x version of [I]gpuOwl[/I] for P1's, but it is not selftending like [I]Prime95[/I] is. It is one less thing I have to keep up with. 
[QUOTE=storm5510;603541]On my older systems, 29.x outperforms 30.x[/QUOTE]I can't comment to other worktypes, but this is absolutely untrue for P1. v30.8 has made absolutely huge gains in P1 performance. Do not judge it by how fast it runs, but by the bounds and probability it can achieve. Please don't do P1 badly, you'll miss factors unnecessarily and (if done badly enough) people may need to redo your work, which is the definition of inefficient.

[I]Prime95[/I] establishes its own P1 and ECM bounds and I don't change them. If there is a difference between v29 and v30, I am unaware of it. I have no intention of doing anything "badly." This would be unnecessary work for someone else. I don't what that! 
[QUOTE=storm5510;603567]If there is a difference between v29 and v30, I am unaware of it.[/QUOTE]There is. A huge difference. Since you posted about this in the v30.8 thread I assume you have been reading about it and are aware of the differences. In short, v30.8 can work with [i]significantly[/i] higher bounds for [i]significantly[/i] higher chance of factor for the same amount of allocated RAM.

I have 30.8 installed on two machines but have not been using it. I will give it another look. 
Found two factors for a TWOK candidate. one factor in stage one, one factor in stage two.
Both were missed by a 2003 P1; both could be found with small B1, B2 so the large B2 from 30.8 was a little unnecessary.
