I should finish my base5 PRPing sometime Sunday night. I have a 2.8GHz dualcore PentiumD that would love to help with this if someone could send me a preprocessed(base2, all nvalues even) file for me to LLR.

Please run a Prime95 tourture test before starting your range. There is no double check for this project, so all missed primes are missed. Last fiddled with by Citrix on 20060715 at 01:51

here's a new file through 3583...sorry had to do it fast wasn't able to remove out what you've completed citrix. or break it into individual files...not many new factors are being found...but every little bit helps. continuing onwards...

I haven't finished till 1.325 yet, it might take 12 more weeks, 200 candidates remaining. (I think I miscalculated) Once I am done till there, I will stop. I will not PRP any more candidates. It just takes too much time from the fast computers I have. I prefer to put them on PSP. Slow computers take very long to do candidates >1M As for finding too few factors, I suggest you stop the sieve and PRP instead. P1 may be better for factoring, you might want to run some tests first. I don't know how fast Jean's computers are and how far he is planning on extending his k's. It might be a good idea to PRP than sieve. edit Code:

Thanks!
Thank you, Tyler, for the new sieved files! I updated my input files according to them.
For k = 23451, I am now at n = 1430648, no primes, continuing... (P4 2.53 GHz) For k = 60849, I am now around n = 1300000, no primes, continuing... (T2300 1.66 GHz) I think we have now to be brave while facing this desert crossing... Best Regards, Jean

k=18534 complete to 1325000
I would like to put a machine on this project, unfortunately all my computers are turned off this summer, so I am waiting for things to cool off, before I can do any serious prime finding.

Jean Penne et al.
I see that you are very serious in your search, and I wish you every success, an oasis before long, in the form of a nice, big prime!

more of them would be out of reach for a while... I hope this bad possibility will be disproved soon! Regards, Jean

I just started working on k=64494. I don't know how far I get, as I currently only have a single PentiumM available. But it should help nevertheless.
I wonder why there are a lot more candidates for k=64494 left than for k=18534, given they have almost the same weight. Last fiddled with by Mystwalker on 20060824 at 19:15

The wieghts are screwed up due to a sampling error.
