Perhaps the independent LMHs should claim ranges?
Hello fellow independent LMHers...
Just putting this out there for discussion... We have less than a month's worth of 63 > 64 "bit" factoring work left below 1B (other than below, of course, 9M). We seem to have been well behaved towards each other, but for the next little bit there's a chance we'll "step on each other's toes". I note that "linded" and "HBendtz" are both working up in the 900M  1B range. I myself, "linded" and "lindee" are currently working the 800M  900M range. "monst" is currently working in the 702M range, although taking the exponents up to 65. I, additionally, also have a small percentage of my cluster working in the 500M to 700M range. I would like to officially claim what remains in 525M  538M, 680M  700M, 730M  750M and 800M  840M which are still at 63 "bits". Comments? Thoughts? Feedback? Last fiddled with by chalsall on 20100708 at 19:10 Reason: Added the "still at 63 bits" part.

I would like to claim all assignments above 840M from 63 to 64 bits for myself and linded (excepting the assignments HBendtz or others reserve through PrimeNet).

I have a lone P3 happily crunching away in the 740M741M range, at like 0.04M/week.
Otherwise, there's little useful work for that machine these days, so I'd like to keep the range. Exponent reservation has started.

Any other ranges which anyone wants left alone, just say so. I'll post here when the above ranges are completed, "reserving" some more. Thanks

Something to consider....help required elsewhere..
The main subdiscussion starts at post 307 or so.
http://www.mersenneforum.org/showthr...t=7082&page=13 In a nutshell DC continues to fall farther and farther behind LL (several years). Maybe when the TF quest to 64 bits is complete and if some of you were so inclined to consider moving your big farms from TF to DC for a while the project would benefit much.

... or given to a charity which can route them to groups just needing basic processing.

Just noticed you were working in the 176177M ranges.... I was kindof hoping you would leave the 100M range to those will small PCs....cause once sub64 TF are gone many 32bit architecture PCs thruput will drop in half. Last fiddled with by petrw1 on 20100719 at 04:50
