Next project?

[QUOTE=unconnected;272020]Next project?[/QUOTE]10metreh has an idea for a new project. I'm pulling a status now to get a list to start off with. We should have something final in a day or two.

In the meantime, if anyone has any thoughts on what they might like to work on for another project, post them here and we can see what everyone thinks.

Here are some stats on where everything is at.

Open sequences: [B]9253[/B]

Of these, there are [B]480[/B] that are less than 500 lines and [B]21[/B] that are over 6000 lines.

There are [B]8419[/B] that are under 120 digits and [B]58[/B] that are >= 150 digits.

My first thought was to open a [I]Project 500[/I] after [I]Project 400[/I] ended, but based on how long it took to move everything to 400 lines, that's probably not viable. We could, however, keep a sticky with the shortest sequences and we could move the lower end up on an ongoing basis.

One of the past projects was an effort to work ranges up to 110 digits. We could start a 120 digit project, but it would be a very significant investment of time and effort.

A project to try and pull something else up to the level of 933436 would be interesting, but everything that is anywhere close is not going to work unless there is a driver escape:[code]842592 8003. sz 172 2^3 * 3 * 5 * 13 * 587 * 823 * 1627
195528 8017. sz 144 2 * 3^4 * 24110979082363
552150 8197. sz 147 2^2 * 3 * 7^2 * 17 * 953 * 16493
453798 8565. sz 148 2^2 * 7
933436 12320. sz 150 2^2 * 7 * 349 * 798258469[/code]Another intersting long term project might be to see how high we could push the highest sequences:[code] 564 3357. sz 172 2^2 * 7 * 31 * 103 * 6211 * 26557
842592 8003. sz 172 2^3 * 3 * 5 * 13 * 587 * 823 * 1627
2340 688. sz 174 2^3 * 3^2 * 5 * 13 * 34522914553
8352 1716. sz 175 2^2 * 3 * 5 * 7 * 88237 * 11918034727
3270 645. sz 177 2^5 * 3 * 7 * 73
966 893. sz 178 2^2 * 3^2 * 5 * 83 * 2099
162126 4283. sz 178 2^3 * 3 * 5 * 461
552 1057. sz 179 2^2 * 3 * 71 * 145633
660 890. sz 181 2^3 * 3^2 * 5[/code]Interestingly enough, 842592 is a member of both sets, long and high....if unconnected gets tired of working it, we could adopt it as another community sequence.
