Default Another mystery worker alert

Someone has pushed 513744 and 515388 forward a bit. Who is this?

Edit: and 515872, 515982.

It is very important that you reveal yourself, otherwise we might end up with two people working on the same sequence.

I won't bother looking up all the sequences you've pushed on. But I think you've worked on all the ones without a driver in the current subproject wave.

I think I am starting to break the code on this new data base.

If you submit a valid factor for a number in any of the sequences, you automatically get a "free" TF on the remainder. Not sure of this limit, 2000, 1e6 ??

With that said, if the remainder is less than 60 digits, then you will get a "free" sieve by a Local Worker. This will execute right away if a good worker is connected.

If the remainder is greater than or equal to 60, you will get a "free" ECM to low levels by the Local Workers. I think the limits and curves vary by size of composite. Something in the c60-c90 range gets 30 curves at B1=30K. The number of curves decrease and the B1 decreases with higher cXXX.

If you have a low level sequence, say around c55 and there are Local Workers present, they could run the sequence for you or until it hits a moderately tough cXX where it will stop. Then you need to manually intervene or "buy" more curves.

RichD.

P.S. No it wasn't me but I have been playing in the 10-90K range.
