I could re-download all the important data for "just in case", if you resend me the link (last sync was sometimes mid of the last year, like 3 or 4 GB all the factors to 10G, iirc). I will also contribute a little bit toward you buying a new HDD (check with Mike).

I guess I should have been clearer, to me it was obvious that that HDD's useful life is over. I had actually already been considering replacing that drive with a newer/larger one for space reasons, so as soon as I found a problem I clicked "order". The replacement should be here in a few days.

To be clear, this is a HDD in my home system (not the server), and all the data is replicated on a second machine so there is little danger of data loss. The interesting bits of data are packaged up for export every Sunday morning on the export page (I haven't packaged up the 2020 data yet but will soon).
edit: 2020 archives are now finalized

 2021-02-10, 06:52 #510 SethTro     "Seth" Apr 2019 251 Posts I was looking at https://www.mersenne.ca/tjaoi.php If it's not a hard query it would be interesting to know how many number (maybe even in each bit range) where TJAOI has found the only factor. If that's easy then additionally GHz saved over all exponents where TJAOI has found the singular factor.

It's possible, but it's not a trivial query.

 2021-02-11, 07:21 #512 LaurV Romulan Interpreter     Jun 2011 Thailand 52·7·53 Posts Last similar "argument" raised by me some time ago had the result, someone posted a list of 5 (?) such factors, from which, after some investigation, only 1 or 2 were "new TF", the rest were found by ECM or were not "first factor", or were not "new". He found a lot of "second" and "third" and "so on" factors, I mean A LOT, but didn't factor many exponents which had no known factor before. I mean, by TF. As he worked the lower bitlevels "by q", or "by k" (it is still unsettled how he did it, but it is clear he didn't do it "by p"), any "new" factor he would have found below 66 bits (he surpassed the 65 bits boundary, I think, and still raising slowly) would mean a factor "missed" by GIMPS. There are not many of those.

It's possible my query is faulty, but I was not able to find any exponents for which TJAOI has the only known factor.
Code:
SELECT *, COUNT(*) AS howmany FROM prime_numbers_0 WHERE (exponent IN ( SELECT exponent FROM primenet_results_archive_2013 JOIN primenet_results_archive_users USING (primenet_results_user_id) WHERE (primenet_results_archive_users.user_name = "TJAOI"))) GROUP BY exponent ASC HAVING (howmany > 1);
Finding exponents where a specific user found the first known factor is a little more complex, I may come back and look at that again later.

Not possible, it's sure. A recent example is 5055943. Occasionally he turns in a few exponents around 2M-5M with new single factors found by TF.

By my guesstimates, there should be roughly 500 such exponents.

Thanks. My query was broken in two different ways
Now it returns more sane values
Code:
SELECT exponent, timestamp_found FROM known_factors_0 WHERE (exponent IN (SELECT exponent FROM primenet_results_archive_2021 JOIN primenet_results_archive_users USING (primenet_results_user_id) WHERE (result_type = "F") AND (primenet_results_archive_users.user_name = "TJAOI"))) GROUP BY exponent ASC HAVING (COUNT(*) = 1);
Count of exponents by year where TJAOI has found the only known factor:
Quote:
 2021: 13 2020: 519 2019: 143 2018: 121 2017: 68 2016: 113 2015: 217 2014: 211 2013: 5
The 1410 exponents in question are attached, sorted by date.

Note that this is not quite the same question as looking for where TJAOI found the first known factor and someone else may have subsequently found another factor (or, indeed, TJAOI found a second factor for the same exponent). I have not looked for these but I suspect there won't be many.

 2021-02-16, 03:39 #516 petrw1 1976 Toyota Corona years forever!     "Wayne" Nov 2006 Saskatchewan, Canada 2·32·11·23 Posts Is the source code for prob.php available? I found the source code quite easily about 3 years ago but either, I've gone brain-dead or it's not as accessible as it used to be. I believe the formulas have changed because the percentages are not the same as they used to be. I'd like to try to translate the basic calculation into an Excel macro to help me determine the best bounds to use for large blocks of P-1 assignments. Thanks

The P-1 probability code was re-designed by Mihai Preda in 2020-Aug.
His original code was, at the time, posted on https://github.com/preda/gpuowl/tree/master/pm1/ but I no longer see the file there that I used. I think I remember something about Mihai including a PM1 probability calculator utility with gpuowl so you might want to look into that (I could be mistaken).

I have attached my PHP version of Mihai's code, I'm not sure how easily it translates to Excel.
