To all: If you want to tackle a base or two higher than 32, that's fine as long as the conjecture is low; preferrably < ~2500. Most low conjectures are easy to administer and check.

You'll have to determine what the lowest Riesel or Sierp value is with a covering set. There's a thread that talks about software that can do this. In the past, I've used a crude method that uses srsieve sieving software that is quite accurate for determining low conjectures but it's a little combersome to set up and use.

Before starting on a base, please let us know that you are reserving it, what the conjectured value is, and what the covering set is.
