Oh we have a few tflop idle here and like to search 1 prime deeply. Seeing megadrive not very active yet i'll pick a different one otherwise.

 2013-09-18, 11:51 #7 Kosmaj     Nov 2003 E2616 Posts k=69 is completely checked from n=1 up to n=2416k. Double check was done from n=1 up to n=100k by D. Broadhurst. All known primes for all k<300 are listed here. Current limits are given as well (they may not be up to date for k=1, 3, 27, and 121). Thanks for your interest and happy hunting! ps. Please inform us about your progress from time to time, and attach your results if possible. And we'll appreciate if you include our project RPS (Riesel Prime Search) in you prover's code when you report primes. Last fiddled with by Kosmaj on 2013-09-18 at 11:56

Primegrid have already sieved all k < 10000 to a level that you are unlikely to ever achieve on your own - N < 3M to 100P and N=3-6M currently at 314P. The files can be downloaded from this thread: http://www.mersenneforum.org/showthread.php?t=18255
