I on the other hand have now taken 9436 from 128 digits to 165 digits with 2*3 intact all the way.
I would attribute the number of successes more to the fact that his workers are running all the unreserved sequences. If you bet on 1000+ horses to win, you're much more likely to have one hit than if you bet on one horse. (Of course, it helps if you have the resources to bet on the 1000!)

Actually, you're a little off:

438966:i4720 = 5748:i15 = 246584

Speaking of successes, 712068 terminates at term 3235, from a max height of 114 digits.

I have comparable resources (can do a C155 every three or so days), but since I'm applying them something closer to largest-composite-first rather than smallest-composite-first, I am not getting as many terminations.

Yes, exactly. I do work on all 9000+ open sequences, but not all at once -- these days I have about 24 threads running at lowest priority on hyper-threaded machines shared with other tasks. That's more resources than many forum members, maybe, but a lot less than others like fivemack and bsquared. And I've done my share of reserving specific sequences -- trying to pick a winner on my own -- and devoting substantial resources to pushing them to 140+ digits.

All of which is good fun, of course. It's way more exciting to get a downdriver at 130 digits than at 110. But despite knowing about drivers and escapes, I haven't proven very good at picking winners -- for me by far the best strategy for achieving terminations has been to just add as many terms as possible to whatever sequence.

So to each his own. I'll keep picking away at the low end, and fivemack can go for the digit records with his 48-core monster.

That sure is a nice drop!

417600 is no more. It's pined for the fjords. It's an ex-sequence. Bereft of life, it rests in peace!

Sorry, I forgot to update the record with this one....

I hope there are still some out there for the rest of us!

Side question: are you (schickel) double-checking the elf files before erasing them from the copybook? Since the stories with scrambled sequences on the DB my back sweats every time I hear a sequence terminates :P
