It appears that the 5 and 6 tables now need extending.
There are fewer than 5 holes remaining.

a rare SNFS miss
3^7231 cofactor was factored by ECM with B1=450M as p63.p105. Seems to be an "SNFS miss" . (snfs difficulty is 230)
A bit like shooting sparrows with a cannon, perhaps? Most probably, it was just a wrinkle in the process of bulk list ecming. Maybe it should have been left unnoticed, but someone would have asked... so I will pretend to be the troublemaker. If for anything, then at least for the purpose of creating the antonym to the "ECM miss".

necessarily be overuse of ECM before switching to SNFS. As long as the ECM time was like 20% of the SNFS time, I wouldn't bring out the newly coined "SNFS miss". We could suggest that B1=450M is not very efficient as a sweep for p45's (expecting also a large standard deviation in the time for finding p45s); but I'm not yet clear that it's a misuse of resources (not that Sam's asked). So far as I know, Paul's never put a restriction on the ratio of factorsize to compositesize, like Brent's 2.2 (or so) for the Champions list  p63 is waysmall for that consideration; I'd expect to see Paul list this p63 on the 2011list. After all, ECM didn't know that the number was smaller than usual (runtimewise), except for a lowerorder speedup in the time percurve. Bruce
