Sieving almost done...
Looking at the stats, we have about 8 million relations to go to complete the required 82 million. Since the beginning of February, NFSNet's been averaging over 1 million relations per day...even if we ignore the three recent near 2 million days. So it looks like sieving will be done in about a week or so! Sieving for a record factorization in 4.5 months! Nice job!

One of my machines began sieving a few thousand lines yesterday so that we can estimate how much effort will be needed to complete the factorization. First results suggests that about 25 million lines will be enough and that this will require about 9000 WU of effort. More precise figures will be available when we've analyzed the results of the survey sieving. Paul

that's great that's ya already started work on the next project, in this case, we won't lose CPU cycles :) so give us some details when ya'll finish analyzing the results of the survey sieving. later

Yes, the next project should rather less effort than the current one. Paul

We discovered overnight that we have enough relations to proceed with the next phases of the computation and so switched to the next project, 10_223P, at around noon UT. I'm snowed under at the moment, so more later... Paul
