It seems like now we got:
Ranges that is still in progress: 185M195M by Michael was extended to 50+ bits 200M205M by edorahj to 50 bits 220M230M by adpowers to 50 bits 240M250M by ThomRuley to 50 bits 250M500M by Xyzzy to 32 bits (till 403M it is done and in datafile) Other ranges were finished and not extended. The data file has only dividers inside but no bitlevels that is already done. Statistics file http://www.yxine.km.ru/vsc.asp?page=...mersennestatus has results for factors by ranges. We must think now about the way to remember the bitlevels done and current ranges out/available. I have some thoughts about that and will soon realize them on my site, but I'd like to hear first other participators thoughts. Last fiddled with by HiddenWarrior on 20040312 at 14:20

Also, I worked on range 195M200M with my own applet, and found more exponents (about 142,000) during an extensive search through 150 bits. The results are divided into 5 1M zipped files, and have already converted into "mers" style. Just ask me if you need them! As for bit levels and ranges, I think the best would be a PHP/MySQL or Perl/CGI online reserving system that could eventually and automagically unreserve expiring, non returned, "non Primenet" ranges of exponents after (say) 2030 days.

What kind of computers are you using for these ranges? I've been using a 900Mhz Athlon for my range for over 2 weeks and I am almost 1% done with taking my range to 32 bits. Is there something faster than AdvancedFactor? On the plus side, my computer has eliminated a lot of exponents and will save future searchers a lot of time LL testing.

I usually divide 50% CPU time for a couple of projects with either a Athlon XP 2100+ and a Celeron 2 GHz Luigi

I'm not working on that range anymore... All of my results should be in that results file...
I really appreciate your taking control of this project... Let me know if you need anything!

Uh!!! Hard day!!! But a lot of work done (analyzing and database filling). So here are the results!
Ranges and bits done for 1 April 2004 Code:
Range Bits Done  79.380 Partly from 53 to 60 (my zip datafile comes soon) 80145 50 145150 52 150195 50 195200 ??? (Some more than 32 bit) 200205 32 205220 ??? (Some more than 32 bit) 220230 32 230240 50 240404.3+ 32  Last fiddled with by HiddenWarrior on 20040401 at 12:08

WONDERFUL! You can add 195200 50 (I did it). And if you need it, I have a double copy of results.txt: the one got from Prime95 and the one got from Factor3_1. The second has many more factors. Luigi

Prime95 is much *faster*, Factor3_1 is slower (though there are improvements in the near future) Prime95 founds ALL factors while run at exponents < 79,300,000. Prime95 has a final check control routine at the end of its factorization work, Factor3_1 still hasn't The final decision on what software to use is up to you Luigi Last fiddled with by ET_ on 20040402 at 06:33
