Previous ranges 54.5 M (B1=B2≤730,000) and the second half of 55 M (B1=B2≤690,000) should now be finished and I am "unreserving" them.
Report for range 54.4 M (B1=B2≤730,000): 0 factors found in 18 attempts (0%). Expected probability 3.81%~3.83%. Report for range second half of 55 M (B1=B2≤690,000): 0 factors found in 12 attempts (0%). Expected probability 3.89%~3.92%. Currently working on:  the first half of 56 M (B1=B2≤690,000)

Now intending to work on the exponents in the second half of 56 M that has B1=B2≤700,000 and without a DC.
As most of the exponents will be in Cat 3 and higher, I will reserve every exponent as TF before I start my work. If you see an exponent that is not currently reserved in the Primenet system, then it simply means I am not working on it. Declaration here is more for the recording of progress. Currently colloquially "reserved":  the first half 56 M (B1=B2≤690,000) Currently intending to do (will Primenetreserve every exponent before I actually start working on it, so you don't have to avoid anything——there is no risk of me poaching your factor):  the second half 56 M (B1=B2≤700,000)

Report for the second half of 56 M (B1=B2≤700,000): 2 factors found out of 35 attemps (5.71%). Expected prob. 3.93%~3.94%.
Now intending to work on the exponents in the first half of 57 M that has B1=B2≤700,000 and without a DC. I will reserve every exponent as TF before I start my work on it, so you don't have to avoid them. Currently informally "reserved":  the first half 56 M (B1=B2≤690,000) Currently planning to do (will Primenetreserve every exponent):  the first half 57 M (B1=B2≤700,000) Last fiddled with by Ensigm on 20201205 at 05:03 Reason: typo: min prob is 3.93

I'm finishing up the exponents in the 13m  13.1m range where B2 < 1.9 million.

I am currently doing the 9M range with B1=2.000.000 and B2 then will be around 162.000.000
I don 't know what just happend, but 12 out of the last 100 attempts resulted in factors found, two of them even doubles, so 14 total. And one 124 bits in size
