BTW, all base 28 k (Sierpinski) are tested to n = 100,000. I made a mistake and did not test the base 28 Riesels. You can unreserve them. I will reserve the Sierpinski and Riesel base 27 k. Last fiddled with by rogue on 20080508 at 23:16

AMAZING and congrats again on a monster prime!!
I believe this will move CRUS into 12th place on primes found (from 14th) and move it into 18th place on score (from 20th). I just now looked and the score on it is 33.11! Whew! :) BTW, what was your optimal sieve depth for this? It must have been very high although I don't know what its weight is.

One more interesting note on Rogue's Sierp base 11 proof: With a conjectured value of k=1490, it is the highest conjecture that has been proven to date for either side by any project. The previous highest was Sierp base 21 at k=1002.
The next challenge: What's the highest conjecture that we only have ONE k remaining on? By far, it is Sierp base 10 with a conjecture of k=9175. It has only k=7666 remaining at n=195K. Anyone care to tackle Sierp base 10? Gary

On a PowerPC G5 at 2.5 Ghz, it took 9900 seconds (as from my original post on the subject). The verification took 7900 seconds on a 2.4 Ghz Core 2 Duo. I was rather surprised by that because I expected verification to take longer as verification of primes in other bases has taken much longer.

I have added links to sieved files for Riesel and Sierp bases 22 and 23 (4 bases total) to the reservations web pages. 3 of the 4 files are sieved past P=5T and the other at P=~3.5T.
The files go from n=100K1M on most of the k's. The P=5T files should be nearly sufficiently sieved if you plan on testing to only n=200K. Past that, they'll need more sieving. Warning: Taking any of these bases to only n=200K is a large amount of work unless you find primes quickly. Thanks for the excellent sieving KEP!
