Maybe I'll try the python script tomorrow, so I can do "real" elf work.
I'm happy to be inspirational. I have a script now that invokes YAFU after it runs the gp part as a test for smaller primes. I have it running on several machines right now for testing at 70 dd + 10. I intend to provide it as a, "How I. . ." thread once I polish it a bit. I think I'll make it a Colab session first and then consider a desktop version.
