Welcome back James!

I have asked Xyzzy to upload the next set of LLR input files, covering 3.15M to 3.3M bits, which will take us very close to 1 million digits (3.32M).

Tests take nearly 6 hours each on a Pentium 4 at 2.66GHz. An average file will take 2 weeks -- with 58 numbers. This will be the case until about 3.7M bits.

Thanks to Geoff for the new sieve, which Carlos and Thomas used to get the least divisor up to 245 trillion.

We are due to find a prime

If we find a prime now it will be 12th largest known.

Good luck all
