Big factors
Found my biggest factor so far for a Wagstaff number:
2^9235649+1 has a factor: 153616228560877782360733142221974579132477827835600631264993134521609 [226.5 bits]

worktodo.txt:
Pminus1=1,2,8232929,1,10000,0,"3" => Code:
P1 found a factor in stage #1, B1=10000. 2^8232929+1 has a factor: 997183410304432117267065463213026379715216410911450070172292068758243 (Of course, I cheated in Pari first, by finding a few 2^p+1 that have at least five small factors. This one has two more slightly larger. Seven altogether.)

Have you submitted them to Zimmermann's website?

Composite factors are not eligible:
153616228560877782360733142221974579132477827835600631264993134521609 = 7160401272398244691 * 219902328863708115073 * 97559577016295905770143558963 The smallest of them should have been found by TF, easily: 62 bits. (Wagstaff numbers have factors of form 2kp+1, just like Mersenne's.) Let's find some even larger factors... Code:
P1 found a factor in stage #1, B1=100000. 2^8232929+1 has a factor: 8203927240046868961280630569987984778892578839825012457683394506843242760078451651993971

Damn. But it's pretty cool to find a factor that divides into three other ones.

Don't forget that TF to 61 bits for a number with p=9M is much harder than TF to 61 with p=64M. I think it's more like TFing p=64M to 64 bits...that still seems low, but for p=9M, maybe that's sufficient. Maybe they don't have an mfaktc equivalent. ("wfaktc"?)

Oliver has modified his GPU code and Jeff is testing it now. Vincent should be firing up a couple of Teslas soon.

As Paul said, we are factoring to high bits now with the modified version of mfaktc. That P1 factor was from the last batch of p1 before I started using it.
GPU TF FTW!
