Garo,
Can you post a detailed stepbystep explanation of how to get Primenet credit for manual tests? If so, that would be great, I think we'd get a lot more takers.
I've got dozens more triplecheck exponents like the above. The chances of these producing a Mersenne prime are nil, since two separate LL tests produced nonzero (albeit differing) results, and to get a prime you'd have to have both the triple and quadruple checks returning zero residue. So it's unfair to automatically release these as pseudofirsttime checks to people who specifically requested only firsttime checks with a bona fide chance of finding a prime. Nevertheless these triple checks are extremely valuable because they have an excellent chance of unmasking a previouslyundetected errorprone machine, and then all of that machine's other, unverified exponents
can legitimately be released as pseudofirsttime tests.
The triplecheck exponents I want to post here satisfy both a) a high chance of unmasking an errorprone machine, and b) each exponent that unmasks an errorprone machine triggers a fairly large number (at least 15+) of that machine's other, unverified exponents for pseudofirsttime LL testing.
