On the positive side, did you consider doing first-time PRP? arguably they are more useful than PRP-CF.

I wondered where you were. I suppose you could simply filter by exponent size. Nothing smaller than 50-million, for example. The Exponent Status Distribution map on mersenne.org shows a lot of DC work at, and above, 53-million.

Have I considered doing first-time PRP? Not really. I do not want to spend a week, or more running a single exponent. If I could snag something at the bottom end of what is available, I might as a DC. Primenet lists them two different ways on the manual reservation page. "Double-check LL tests" and "Double-check PRP tests."

I just reserved a LL-DC which is just above 57-million. gpuOwl indicates it will take 39 hour to complete. I can live with that.

While you're reading this, I want you to know that I have a really big peeve with gpuOwl, the screen update interval. It is way too long, for my suit anyway. Having an entry in "config.txt" where a user could set the interval, like Prime95, this would be really nice...
