So my new candidate has overtaken the Sierpinski best and looks to go best overall, if it is able to keep up its furious pace. I am aware of what happened to the current Sierpinski record holder  a long gap at 180 primes.
I'll take my Riesel champ up to 250K for sure, I'm currently at 147910 Riesel records 171 118689 172 119254 173 129630 Overall records 174 134337 175 134490 176 141805 177 146149

It does take a long time to check candidates in the upper 100,000's.
now at 179 primes with two more absolute record breakers: 178 159874 179 163330 I really want the 181st prime here to get the absolute number of primes record back for Mr. Riesel

gosh, well there is a target. I'm running three cores but only during office hours so may take some while to get to 182. At least I know this is up to date information now. At 167500 and no more primes.

180 popped up just as I was leaving work last night. On another console I have found another prime, which is the 181st I have found, but there is an unchecked range 168100170000 still to complete before we know this is 181 for certain!!

The First to 182 primes !!
My candidate is in a field of its own now:
181 174712 182 177119 I think this will probably have to be tested to 200 primes as it should be 5 ahead or thereabouts of any other candidate tested to 300,000

Now 184!!
The candidate is still seriously powering along:
183 177684 184? 190958 There are substantial untested ranges 177700180000 and 185300190000 which mean that I can't say for sure that the 190958 is actually number 184.

We should get this to 200 primes quickly then.

I will keep the machine sieving during the weekend and expect to reach p=4000B (= 4T) on Sunday evening. This should be sufficient for a while, at least up to n=400k. In case that you run out of test candidates I've sent you the current sieve file (at 800B). Please check your emails...
