It is 13438*16^98815+1. Way to go tcadigan! In other news, Geoff has completed Sierp base 6 to n=30K and the remaining 57 k's are ready for reservation on the pages. I think I may take a poll on what base people think would be good to test for team drive #3 but I think Sierp base 6 looks like a good choice. There are not too few k's, not too many k's, not too high of a base that takes a long time to test, etc. It will be about a month before that would get started. Gary

Sieved files already provided for all searches of top-5000 Riesel primes for low k-values! Gary Last fiddled with by gd_barnes on 2008-01-21 at 21:02
 2008-01-24, 08:10 #15 gd_barnes     "Gary" May 2007 Overland Park, KS 110001000101112 Posts Algebraic factors for Riesel base 24 Michaf astutely realized after a small amount of testing that Riesel base 24 has a partial covering set of algebraic factors for all k=m^2 that combines with a trivial factor of 5 to make a full covering set as follows: On all even n's where k=m^2 and n=2*q, it factors to (m*24^q+1)*(m*24^q-1). On all odd n's, there is simply a trivial factor of 5. Therefore, all k=m^2 are eliminated from consideration for Riesel base 24. Nicely done as usual Michaf! The algebraic factors will be reflected on the web pages shortly. Gary

 2008-01-25, 17:17 #17 gd_barnes     "Gary" May 2007 Overland Park, KS 3·59·71 Posts New LLRNet servers for connected machines See Anon's thread about 2 new LLRnet servers that have been set up for CRUS. If you have a machine that is connected to the internet for a large portion of each day, it's an excellent way to do automated LLR testing without messing with downloading or copying files. Better yet, you don't have to worry about it running out of work in the middle of the night! Gary

Note that I said 'a large portion of the day' not 'all day'. I suppose I could leave that off entirely since people could just have their machine on/connected for 1 hour a day if they wanted to. But I'm assuming that anyone who uses LLRNet will have their machine connected for 8+ hours. Poor assumption perhaps.

You are correct, for the most part. Though dial-up users can use LLRnet as long as they set their "WUCacheSize" value to a high enough number to keep them busy between connects, I would still recommend that dial-up users stick to manual LLR--especially if their computer is not guaranteed to connect to the internet at least once a day.

 2008-01-27, 07:32 #21 gd_barnes     "Gary" May 2007 Overland Park, KS 1256710 Posts Riesel b16 drive 2 restarted; Sierp b6 this week The Riesel base 16 team drive has restarted. Files have been posted for n=100K-140K. For Sierp base 6, sieving is progressing for all k's and should be done Monday-Tuesday for n=30K-100K. We'll start a team drive #3 for that one around mid-week. Gary

There are 56 k's remaining at n=30K with 50 k's in the team drive. Files have been posted for n=30K-70K. Let's see what we can do with a non-power-of-2 base!
