I started to clear out the PRPs again and right now it's a losing battle. There are 60,000+ less than 3000 digits, with hundreds ranging from 18-299. Someone is obviously spamming the DB right now.

Is it cmd again? Although cmd's banned from MersenneForum, he/she might still have access to the DB. Maybe cmd's taking revenge on us for being banned. It's just a theory, though, no proof.

EDIT: The DB is offline right now, saying "Creating backup, offline for ~1 hour", so it should be back up soon.

factordb will automatically prove everything under 300 digits. Sustained factors in that range usually means the worker dedicated to that task is not functioning for some reason. Sometimes it comes back on it's on, sometimes an email to Markus helps.

All the local workers were on line and running, I was just pointing out that someone was spamming the DB faster than the sub-300s could be cleared. It looks like they're clear now, but the 300-3000 backlog is almost at 60,000. As soon as I finish the range I'm running in the Amicable number search, I'll run some more certificates to help clear it up.

Request: can someone run the recently-discovered 1472-digit PRP cofactor of M5233 through Primo and submit the certificate to factordb?

I had trouble with Primo as it seems to be GUI only, and the only Linux machines I have access to are virtual machines with a command line interface. Also, the binary-only executable seems to want some additional libraries to be installed...

I've not done a non-trivial Primo proof, but I did set up and test the software last fall, so I should be able to fire up this certificate tomorrow.

Let me know if you don't and I can run it shortly.

It looks like a certificate was already uploaded by Batalov earlier this morning.

Is anybody having issues uploading certificates? It has been a long time since I've done this, so maybe I'm doing something wrong. I took all of the .out files (1000 of them) and put them in a .zip. It tells me that 0 certificates are found. If I try uploading a single certificate, it doesn't take it and only returns with a period as a message: "."

If you are using the latest Primo v.4.2.1, factordb doesn’t recognize them. The verifier supposedly would check them but it appears the parser, or gatekeeper, won’t allow them to be passed to the verifier. I don’t know of a site that archives the older Primo v.4.1.1.

I have dozens of certs in the 1000-5000 digit range but I don’t know of a way to convert them to the older format for verification. Arg!

That would be the case. Thank you for telling me. The latest I have is 4.0.1. Anybody have anything later?
