First, really posting to find out if the error I got above is a bug in Prime95, since it worked fine on a smaller exponent.

Second, again, just doing some light TF and ECM on a project I'm already doing PRP with on another computer on the off chance I find a factor and save me whatever time remains from the PRP test. From what I gather, the probability of finding a factor between 2^81 and 2^82 is slightly above 1%, which is greater than 0%. I get that it's slow, but I haven't heard an actual reason why I should opt for no work over some work, when any work is positive work.
