Fails to find very small factors.
My understanding (which matches my experience) was that factorDB will trial factor any new composite it is given, to a low level. Just now, intending to enter the following number 1, I forgot to subtract the 1
Code:
2*3*5*29*11*7*13*37*17*79*23*4129*193*2593*101*19*39163*577*26431*131*308798542881428667318174028327605372989*103*163*179*293*127*6287*683437*31*89*13590243019242466336587034391*113*2207*59*109*223*2351*62861*4651*43*53*669301*1087*7477*817246446020375245871694881*41*323717*187273*83*337*1327*431*739*15137*5659*47*4086059*97*93557*827923*569*281*2129*1033*433*82373*239*263*1217*719*4931*383*769*60149*4049*620663 Last fiddled with by Mr. P1 on 20130321 at 06:33

http://factordb.com/status.php doesn't list any cores dedicated to small TF (it used to have). My guess is that this feature was removed a long while ago.
/me vaguely remembers similar problems a while back

It doesn't need to do any TF. The factors are in the query string.

I seem to recall it being more intelligent than that, recognizing the factors when you enter a number as a product of values. Perhaps this is related to the TF worker being disabled?
