Sorry, I have missed that. I didn't want to step onto your toes.

This sentence is a bit confusing.

I have (re)done 250k-400k.
bchaffin has done 400k-500k to >100 digits.

And this means: All sequences below 1M are now > 100 digits! A nice milestone, I guess

Yep, that doesn't make any sense, does it? I think I must have read your post as "250k-500k". Anyway, yes, all open sequences <1M are now over 100 digits.

I reworked the top post. Any typos that I missed?

Fixed.

Now:
The entire range of sequences with a starting number below 1,000,000 has been calculated to a minimum height of 110 digits.

It was slow in the coming, but I've now updated that, and removed this line:

Various people and automated workers are advancing the rest of the sequences below 1,000,000 to 110 digits, but sequences below 110 digits are still open for reservation.
Anyone know for sure that it'd make sense to put this back in, but with "120 digits"? I'd think so, but not sure.

It's fine as it is. I don't know exactly what I meant with this sentnence....it was making sense when I wrote it.

I think I meant that there was a general, undirected effort going on to extend everything to 110, but not to worry about jumping in to reserve anything that was not specifically reserved that looked to be interesting....or something like that.

There doesn't seem to be any interest in aliquot sequences above 1 Mil at this time. Additionally, there is a BOINC project called YAFU developed by yoyo devoted as a factorDB worker to factor composites in the (current) range of C80-C95.

So I have a short program which I run from time to time to keep the queues somewhat filled with composites from these sequences. You can see my post here in the YAFU thread.

Let me know if I am out of line.

Not really no interest, as such, just more keeping the project managable right now. I don't know how many unique sequences there are between 1M and 2M, say, but at this point, there is no need to go above 1M to keep us occupied with work.

Besides, if we started working up above 1M, most of the impatient people (cf. RDS and instant gratification) would go haring off to work ever increasing ranges above 1M in search of the low hanging fruit....

As far as keeping the factorDB workers occupied, that's a good goal, but at some point the composites will run out unless someone spams the DB with tons of small numbers again.... The natural next step in this process is to work out a distributed NFS project so that the bigger numbers could be tackled. yoyo is currently working with bsquared to get NFS workling using YAFU through the BOINC wrapper to get that started....I don't know what his ceiling is going to be, but if he can get some horsepower running there, they should be able to start churning through the numbers.

TL;DR, no, you're not out of line, and as long as you don't spam the DB too heavily, you do help keep the yoyo factorers busy.....which is good. I find it hard to turn any of my PCs off because I keep thinking of all the cycles that are potentially going to be wasted while they're dark.

I'm really not following the sequences that close. I'm keeping the YAFU workers busy and entertained until yoyo can roll out the NFS code.

At that point I will stop *pinging* so that higher composites will be worked.
(Unless someone wants me to continue.) :)
