I don´t think that´s entirely correct, at least as ECM goes. The "ECM Progress" page has a section where results (number of curves and B1 bounds) are recorded for exponents that already have known factors.

The two 2^67 to 2^68 lines seems to be a race condition: I was manually submitted at the exact second mfloop.py was submitting the result. When I look at my account results, it appears I was given credit for all those lines. Quote:

There could well be a bug regarding CPU credit, which of course is not really a big deal. There is PHP code in there that does give CPU credit for unneeded work where you have a valid assignment. The PHP code is there so that you get CPU credit when someone poaches an assignment. The code might also give you CPU credit for the outoforder results when you have a valid assignment.

Agreed. ECM work is accepted and properly tracked for Mersenne numbers with known factors if the Mersenne exponent is small (less than 20M????). If that limit is less than 20M. it shouldn't be hard to change....just let me know.

16,359 below 1M 25,900 between 1M and 2M 2,163 between 2M and 2.06M 2 random ones at 7.7M and 9.3M I don't question the worth of doing P1 at all on the smaller stuff, compared to ECM... what's done is done. ECM work, as George mentioned, is indeed tracked even after factors are found.

So for numbers with almost no ECM done, like the ones I sent to you, I can find more prime factors than ECM in the same time. Notice that all work was done on Mersenne numbers with at least one prime factor known.
