It exactly is what I'm doing. Well to avoid any confusion here is my battle plan (Using WinPFGW):

1. test 2,500,000 equal k's for being PrP up to n=25,000 (command-line: "input.txt -lxxM.txt")
2. Verify those PrP (command-line: "pfgw.log -tc")
3. List all those k's remaining, and make them publicly availeable on my google page

Hope that explained, but the short answer to your question Gary is: Yes that was exactly what I am doing regards my attack on the Base3 riesel.

Now I've a question. Is there anyway to make WinPFGW work a list of k's from e.g. n=25,001 to n=100,000?

Also to the developers of WinPFGW, it would be very nice if you could make a way to avoid save a log file with factors and such stuff, and make a way to save only the Primes, the PrP and k or n remaining. I think that such a k or n function should be asked to save only for every 10 % which in my example would mean at n:


That way a lot of storage (and writing time) will be saved and it will be easier to list the k's missing and compare the number to the amount of primes found :)

Thanks everyone and happy holidays.
