Yes, I also reported this error here :

And Karsten Bonath here :

Hopefully someone can fix it !

My own calculations : 3^208-214-222-224 up to 120 digits. That's right, the project goal is to search these sequences to 120 digits. Ideally, all cells should be green. But it is not physically possible to push the calculations so far in a reasonable time. 120 digits is a good compromise. I noticed that LaurV is pushing the calculations a lot further ! Congratulations ! It is only for base 2 that we can have green cells for all powers ! What would be extraordinary would be to find an aliquot sequence starting on a power of 2 and that would be Open-End ! You've all noticed that powers of 2 go up to 500. The calculations become very long. I will continue these calculations to turn all the cells green. Then, I think it will be very interesting to extend the powers beyond 500. If someone wants to calculate the aliquot sequences that start with 2^501, 2^502 or more, he can already book them. We are sure that these aliquot sequences will go down to a prime number, because from the first iteration, we must obtain odd numbers. EXCEPT if further on, we had to have a big surprise and if we had to find an even term during the calculations, and then if we had to have terms with a driver !

Dropping 439^34 after adding over 2100 terms. Current C115 cofactor at i2124 is fully ECM'ed.

 2019-02-28, 04:05 #173 VBCurtis     "Curtis" Feb 2005 Riverside, CA 122348 Posts .. that was quick. Unreserving 13^18. The C120 cofactor has been ECMed to t35, nearly enough. I have a new appreciation for the power of 2^3*3*5 to rapidly drive a sequence.
