No probs.
BTW, Bmaxx sent me results for the 483489 range, no primes.

My desktop is working on 369854 right now. Had a crash because of conflicting software but LLR restarted the number just after the last completed test so it's hopefully ok.
Hehe I guess I'll ask how to submit 2*23^21+1 and 2*23^261+1 assuming they're not already known. Is there specific place to check these and submit them to get verified? "LLR tests only k*2^n±1 numbers, so, we will do a PRP test of 2*23^21+1 2*23^21+1 is a probable prime. Time: 18.505 ms. Please credit George Woltman's PRP for this result! LLR tests only k*2^n±1 numbers, so, we will do a PRP test of 2*23^261+1 2*23^261+1 is a probable prime. Time: 15.533 ms. Please credit George Woltman's PRP for this result!"

Your base 23 primes are cute but too small
Currently reportable primes must have at least 61119 digits, therefore in base 23, the minimum reportable exponent is 44900. One such prime is known: 2*23^47589+1 therefore you better begin from n=50,000. You will see that both sieving and testing is much slower in base 23 than in base 2.

I kind of figured that but was going to mention it anyway. Yeah, 23^n=horrible to calculate for n>50000.

Thanks for your help! But it seems you skipped/missed a few numbers. The input file has 517 candidates while your file has only 503 results for 355424355*2^n1. The first one missing is 355424355 369167 Can you check your other files. Or maybe something went wrong when stopping and restarting LLR. If you cannot find what's wrong never mind, I'll locate and do the remaining 14.

Sorry didn't see this until now  It wasn't until last night that I was able to load LLR again. I reinstalled my OS on my desktop so I could move to a 40GB and had tons of problems with scratched disks. :/
I'll submit the results of my reserved ranges when I'm done. If you send me those missed numbers then I can finish them (probally already done though).
