The example I propose below with C30 remains valid with C60, or C20. But indeed, the problem is that the file size increases if the number of digits of C is smaller. Example : Let's imagine a known S sequence stored in FactorDB: index 200 : C30 index 1000 : C160 index 1800 : C30 1) I calculate a sequence S_1 on my own computer. This sequence S_1 merges with S at index 190. It is necessary to store the C30 of the index 200 of S, otherwise I have to calculate S_1 until the index 1800 to notice the fusion. It will take weeks ! 2) I calculate a sequence S_2 on my own computer. This sequence S_2 merges with S at index 1790. It is necessary to store the C30 of the index 1800 of S, otherwise, if I have stored in my list only the first C30 of S, I will never notice the merging of S_2 with S. Thanks to this example, I think we have to store all the C30s (or C20s or C60s... according to my choice) for an aliquot OE sequence from FactorDB. Quote:

For the reasons explained at the beginning of this post, I think, like kar_bon, that all the C30s (or C20s, or C60s...) in a sequence should be stored to establish the list that will allow us to find mergers efficiently.

OK, page updated.
Thank you to all. My own calculations : 2^492 finished after three weeks of computation on it with 8 threads !

In fact, I believe that in just a few weeks, I could put online an effective database to find aliquot sequence mergers, like Wolfgang Creyaufmuller's old database (http://www.aliquot.de/aliquot.htm#Datenbanken). This database would allow all mergers with all aliquots sequences of the Blue Page to be found, up to 3,000,000.
This database would be a text file like those attached to this post to give two examples (C_60 and C_60_80). The best option should now be chosen : 1) Should only all C60s be stored for each aliquot sequence or only all C80s (or only larger terms) for each aliquot sequences ? (only one file with C_60 for example) 2) Should all C60s and all C80s (and possibly others) be stored separately, like attached file C_60 for example ? (several files for C_60, C_80...) 3) Should all C60s and C80s (and possibly others) be stored on the same page, like attached file C_60_80 for example ? (only one file with C_60, C_80... inside) It would certainly be necessary to update this page at least once a year, which I could do. Do you think this work would be useful for all us ? Do I have to do it and with which options (1, 2 or 3 or another one I wouldn't have thought of ?)

Thank you to all. My own calculations : 2^481, 2^483, 2^485, 2^487, 2^489 and 2^490 finished ! This week, I chose aliquot sequences that are easier to calculate !

Thank you to all. My own calculations : 3^228, 3^232 and 3^236 up to 120 digits.

Here are 3 new informations :
1) OK, page updated. Thank you to all. 2) My own calculations : All calculations are completed for base 3 except for 3^108 due to the reported and still uncorrected FactorDB error (https://www.mersenneforum.org/showth...t=19737&page=3 post #25). I now reserve and calculate the aliquot sequences of base 5. 3)Excuse me, but a few weeks ago, I realized that I told some big nonsense in post #188 on this page in example 1). If I store only the last C30 of the known S sequence on FactorDB, that is enough. If the sequence S_1 meets S at index 190, then FactorDB will suddenly give me all the terms of S_1 until the last known term of the already known on FactorDB aliquot sequence S. Then I just have to consider the last C30 of S_1 to identify the already known fusion sequence S. It seemed reasonable to me to store all the latest C80s (rather than C_30s) of all known OpenEnd aliquots sequences up to 3,000,000.

Thank you to all. My own calculations : The calculations for base 5 will be completed in a few weeks.

Thank you to all for your help ! My own calculations : 1) All aliquot sequences in base 5 have been calculated up to 120 digits. 2) I now reserve base 7. 3) I also hope to complete all calculations from base 2 up to 2^500 during the summer. But the calculations are very long ! Soon there will only be green cells in the table of base 2 ! I was hoping to find the "rare beast" : a power of 2 that would have been OpenEnd ! It may be for a few years from now, when I will extend the calculations to 2^600....

I have finished 21^i up to i=30 and am releasing up to that point. I'll continue from i=32 (i=31 terminates) after I clear some of my <3M backlog.
