Why did I choose 10^360360-10^k-1? 360360 = 2*2*2*3*3*5*7*11*13 For small primes p, 10^((p-1)*a)==1 (mod p), and so 10^360360-10^k-1 is not divisible by p. Consequently, after sieving, there is about 15% of the range left and we expect to find about 3 primes in the provable range k=90090-360360.

What's the total number of candidates left after sieving?

These may be "swept away" from the top5000, but they should stay on the near-repdigit table.

I have exponents 388080 and 471240 sieved.
