I think I'll start somewhere in this range....some day soon.
This is the current DC range so it can help there too. Code:

So here's my plan....
I will be starting my little pet project within the next week with 2 GPUs and adding about 30 Cores a few weeks later.
I'll be working in the extremes ranges. The bigger horses in the 40M and 50M ranges. The side benefit is that this will reduce the number requiring DC. The smaller ponies in the 2M range. For the GPUs there are about 16,000 Assignments in the high 40's factored below the yellow bar: http://www.mersenne.ca/status/tf/0/0/3/4000 I expect to find about 200 factors there. For the faster cores with adequate RAM I will be P1'ing exponents in that same range that were done with B1=B2. These seem to give better odds at finding a factor than doing P1 where the B1 and B2 bounds were less than adequate. I'll let a few slower cores dabble at the low end (2M) doing ECM. ================= If anyone is intrigued you are more than welcome to join in. Keep me posted so we don't step on each other's toes. See the first post for the details on this little initiative. Wayne Last fiddled with by petrw1 on 20170831 at 02:55

For what it is worth, if been redoing P1 on exponents that had their P1 done with B1=B2 (usually on machines with no spare memory to do the higher B2 level). Almost all of it in the 10M to 20M range. Mostly with B1=300000 and B2=6000000. About one in 38 candidates yields a new found factor on a previously unfactored exponent.

I realize my little subproject is actually quite a massive undertaking that I couldn't dream of finishing in my lifetime. But I understand that there are always people dabbling at factoring in these ranges:  Some are doing TF in the 20M or 30M ranges; in fact most ranges.  There is a steady stream of ECM in the 0M  20M range.  Others are doing P1 here and there. So we'll see where we are at end of 2018. To compare: since the beginning of 2017 there have been 4,082 exponents newly factored under 60M.  Over half of these in the 2030M range.  And another 30% under 10M W Last fiddled with by petrw1 on 20170907 at 15:32 Reason: Last paragraph

Oh, thanks, but I am not claiming any range, do go ahead.

Almost 8 weeks later...an update.
698 (1.25%) exponents factored in the ranges of interest....0  59.9M
1 range cleared (now below 2,000): 22.2M Several with significant progress.

I am doing a lot of the TF in the under 10m block.
Have already done to 67 bits 3,5,6,7,8 & 9m to 67 bits. Someone else took 9m to 68 bits 2m is 2/3 the way to 67 bits. So about 100k'ish exponents so far. Did quite a bit in the sub 1m range to lift them to 64 bits, but mfaktc doesn't work below 100k so would need to use the cpu  which is currently tied up doing the ecm stage 1's to keep the deep stage 2's going on M4007.

Below 656k all exponents have already been ECM'd to t=25 (about 83 bits). Poor prospects for finding factors of 64 bits or smaller. The above is for all exponents, including the ones that already have at least one known factor. If we consider only exponents with no known factors, then everything below 1M has already been ECM'd to t=25. Edit: also user TJAOI has covered everything up to 64 bits.
