Great find! Thanks for the reminder on primes n>=500. Yes, please send those to me. Last fiddled with by gd_barnes on 20081029 at 20:37

Sorry for askin again, especially if you made a typeo and in fact was answering my first question KEP

I did misread your statement but the answer is the same: Yes, go ahead and send me the primes for n<=500 if the files are not too big. Thanks, Gary Last fiddled with by gd_barnes on 20081031 at 08:10

Thanks for your answer, I'll now go ahead and start uploading the emails, to the draft folder, and as soon as the entire range is uploaded, I will email all parts around the same time, to avoid misunderstandings or data losses KEP

Also I may add, sieving is far more efficient from n>1000 (maybe n>2500) since trial division and factoring then starts to be to time demanding. But for the easyness of creating the proof later on, I'm considering to do it this way: 1. PRP test all k's reserved to n<1000 2. Sieve the k's remaining for n>1000 to n<=25000 3. PRP test all k's remaining in sieve file (for at most 1 prime per k) 4. Proof the PRP with n>1000 5. Proof the PRP with n<=1000 6. Release remaining k's to the public for further testing This was my humble suggestions, but this seems to be the most efficient, however testing large ranges is with current technology bad, when talking about catching the PRP primes turning out to be actually composites. But the listed way, is the most effecient way and less risky of suffering various delaying setbacks. I've suffered many in my first 500M range, but a lot of new scripts has been developed and this really helps making it easier to go with large ranges. Also a final notice, I've updated my Rb3a website, and Gary it appears that you've either one of your sites (the one with remaining k's) not updated or you have to many primes on your primelist. To crosscheck, I can mention that I've currently 215 primes listed and 973 k's remaining. Regards KEP

When you're done with your 10M range, you can just post your remaining k's and I'll add them to my website, aswell remove the k's that can be considered redundant. Hope to see you get just as addicted as I so we can complete level 1 (n<=25K) before the Moon expeditions starts again Anyone up for helping out besides Henryzz? Regards KEP

Hum. I'll have to look up your website and see what the differences are. I balance k's remaining constantly with the minidrives that are going on so I can't imagine it would be in the krange that the minidrives are processing unless either you or me is not totally up to date with the latest primes and k removal.

Well...it figures that the thing I don't check has the problem. I always closely check k's remaining as that has the most impact on what is tested in the mini drives and by individuals. The k's that I had remaining were correct at 977 but the # of primes listed should have shown 211 instead of 215. That means my corrected totals of 977+211 = your total of 973+215. I've now added 7 primes and removed 7 k's per the Riesel base 3 mini drive from the last 12 hours so there are now 970 k's remaining and 218 primes found. But my 970+218 still equals your total of 973+215. Here is a balancing of my mess : Prior k's remaining: 977 k's removed from minidrive today: 7 New k's remaining: 970 Prior # of primes: 215 Miscount of 3 too many primes: 3 One k shown twice with 2 different primes (now removed): 1 Prior primes should have shown: 211 primes added from minidrive today: +7 New # of primes: 218 My web pages are now up to date with the mini drive as of Nov. 12th at 1:30 AM GMT. Thanks for checking a part that I hadn't checked yet! :) Gary Last fiddled with by gd_barnes on 20081112 at 01:38

On a side note, ALL k<=419M for Riesel base 3 has now been taken to n<=25000. I expect 12 more weeks before completion to k<=500M. Regards KEP
