Thanks for the poly search LaurV; I was going to ask jrk to do a search when I got done with my current factorization.

Sieving will take about 3 to 4 weeks on your two cores, and the matrix about 2 days using msieve.
Thanks for the quality check, jrk.

@LaurV: Do you want to tackle the whole thing on your own? If yes, there's another community-sized project that I would like to look into. (660 is currently at i890 c181 = 2^3 * 3^2 * 5 * c178. No chance of escape on this line, but since it is the biggest sequence, it would definitely be a huge deal to see if the 3^2 holds for the next line.....)

If you tackle 283752, I'll email Paul Zimmerman to see if he's got anything going on with 660....
