And in the project description, it states
[quote=escatter11.fullerton.edu/nfs/]The numbers that we are factoring are chosen from the Cunningham project.[/quote]
This is not exclusively true anymore.

[QUOTE=pinhodecarlos;617221]Main page, 4th paragraph, are the details still updated mainly the grant code. Was it extended or is it a new grant code.

Time to update also the Special Contributions link. Curtis, Dmitry, Sean, Rich, Mike, etc etc, have done much more than I did so far, I don't even deserve to be there. Shall we improve this section please to credit all people involved in the background.[/QUOTE]
Thanks for reviewing these pages! Grant number is the same. It's been renewed each time since 2008. But ACCESS has replaced XSEDE. I quickly edited the contributions link. Please let me know who I should include that I missed.

A special attention too to Lionel Debroux who develop the small Sievers detailed stats page from RSALS.


Missing: Jon Becker, (there's more, I'll have to extract from the list of results all its unique users, not now)

Quick favour, if you could not download any jobs for post-processing in the next 24 hours, that will help a lot reducing the server load whilst a few thousands of Wu's are uploaded. Thank you, much appreciated. Greg, forgot to tell you to keep an eye on the pending stuck wus.


Edit 11 AM GMT : Wu's reporting underway.

All done.

Greg asked me to inquire your opinion on having a combined view of all NFS@home queues like I have hacked together for myself [URL="http://mc.oliver-kruse.de/mf/nfs_at_home_queues.html"]here[/URL]. Of course there are improvements possible, like scrolling a bit automatically to skip the preface of each site.

pinhodecarlos 2022-11-24 11:02

Mostly all the times I login I use my mobile so when I look now at that condensed view it is weird, just due to the size of my mobile screen. Any improvements are always welcome, thank you.

I like it! Looks good on my phone too.

HP2 4496:i314 (GNFS 208)
 
This past autumn, after many weeks of searching, [url=https://www.mersenneforum.org/showpost.php?p=615279&postcount=2274]HP2 4496:i314[/url] got a [url=https://www.mersenneforum.org/showpost.php?p=618545&postcount=2333]record setting deg 5 polynomial[/url]. It likely still needs [url=https://www.mersenneforum.org/showpost.php?p=618496&postcount=2328]a bit of tweaking[/url] before sieving as well as a platform on which to do the work.

I am all for tasking 16e_small with this job, as the big siever will likely be busy for the foreseeable future. But if there’s a consensus that a G-208 is simply too much for 16e_small, perhaps we can organize a group effort? I’m willing to contribute.

Thoughts?

This would take, what, 2-3 months on 16e-small? As opposed to a week or less on the big siever?
The ideal solution would be for some NFS@Home users switch from the big siever to 16e-small, but in the absence of any means of accomplishing this, I don't like the idea of the 16e-small queue being blocked for that long.

I'm busy with Cunningham extension numbers for the foreseeable so probably won't take part in any team effort.

I have two thoughts here:
1. Let's see how long the GNFS-203 takes on f-small. This job would be double that length. If the 203 is on the order of a month, it's not crazy to try to do 30-40% of this job on CADO and the rest on f-small. However, I'm booked for at least a season. I can host the CADO job with the usual "Machine", but no more than half of CPU power is available before April.

2. Let's see how my smaller mfb's on 13_940 affect relations needed. If I'm right and the smaller mfb's mean 10% fewer relations are required, we could try this 208 as 34LP with such reduced mfb's and maybe only need 1.6-1.7G raw relations.

For me, these are a couple of small reasons to wait until Spring to consider this job.
