I assume the above-mentioned post is still the best method to engage in this testing? If not, or if you have any suggestions please let me know.
No, that method is pretty much useless now. The best way to do p-1 facoring is the mersenne-aries sub forum. (Go into data and then into Marin's Mesenne-Aries). If you would like bigger blocks of 50, just let me know. There are literally 1000s of p-1 work to do so there is heaps to go around
