:banana: Congratulation :banana:
to Martin Schroeder, aka McBryce !! He was the first who found a factor of a composite mersenne number on my server at

The factor is
M( 9504 )C: 2776202386436268283691901876771457 (34 digits)
found with B1=250000 and
sigma= -176653509

Will Edgington has been informed so this will show up in the next release of lowM.txt. The remaining 714 :shock: digit composite is now available in the ecm server. More helpers are welcome - smh has put together the following to make it easy to join:

[quote="smh"]I've put a zipfile (~800K) with the ecmclient and ecm.exe for various processors online [url=]here[/url]

Before you run ecmclient, put the right ecm.exe in the same folder and set the parameters in ecmclient.cfg[/quote]
if you need any help please contact me at

So now i'm interessted who will be the next one, who finds a factor of M(X) or P(X)..

Are the numbers on your server the [i]full[/i] M or P number or are they divided by known factors?

I ask because on a P4 (and probably other processors) prime95 is [b]much[/b] faster on M numbers, unless you can take advantage of a lot of known factors

Most of the numbers are P(X) but there are also some M(X).
And all of this numbers aren't full numbers anymore, they are divided by known factors.
