Do you want to join the search? If you say pretty please with cherry icing on top, I may, well I might consider being so generous as to share a teeny weeny bit of the range.
(Also kinda reminds me of an episode of "Angelo Rules" where Sherwood wanted to go swimming only because he was not allowed to.)

Actually I thought it would be less work for me as well as for the mods if I continue for as long as I don't plan to stop until someone else wants to join in instead of having to reserve new ranges every then and again. Prime gaps searches don't seem to be very popular these days.

It is a good job you did not reserve to infinity and beyond

To be fair (and slightly more precise), prime gap search posts on Mersenneforum do not appear to be very popular these days. I'm still looking, and I have almost 1,000 record small gaps to post, but I just don't have time to contribute to discussions at the moment.

I'm currently in the 9.4e15 area, so that's ok

I use Thomas's code from post # 145 here:
