When using the form

http://www.mersenne.org/report_factoring_effort/

and ticking the box to activate the 'Output TF worktodo format' option and TF to 2^ is set to SOME_VALUE the result seems to be in the form of

Code:
Factor=N/A,exponent,SOME_VALUE-1,SOME_VALUE
whereas one would expect it to be

Code:
Factor=N/A,exponent,LOWER_CURRENT_VALUE_FACTORED_TO,SOME_VALUE
As a result now some exponents may now be factored up to certain values with missing blocks like:

exponent factored from 1 bit up to 69 bits and from 70 bits to 71 bits.

Can someone run a check on the database to see how many exponents have missing ranges?
