To clarify my last post, I'm now sieving 84^1311 (the last of the 3 I listed). I meant I'll queue the first of the two firejuggler found for processing. Sorry for the confusion.
Chris PS. Has anyone worked on 39^158+1 (the middle one of the 3 I listed)? wombatman found a poly for 37+148+1 (the first one I listed). PPS. And many thanks again. 
Will work on the fourth number of post 85 once i'm done proccessing the hits on the C176

See post #123 for the poly for the middle number. Curtis 
I am doing poly search for the C152 from Aliquot sequence 3408:1287.
I'm using my usual settings from this thread: Default stage1 norm, nps stage 2 norm roughly default/18 (1.5e20 in this case). I get my usual 100kb of nps output in 12 hrs, but npr produces ZERO polys, even when I loosen the min e value lower than default (3.5e12 instead of default 3.63e12). Are there numbers where the polys found are just terrible compared to expectations? I just loosened the min value to 3.0e12, and I get plenty of poly output so it's not a software error, far as I can tell. Coeffs for these tests are in the 36M range, which seems pretty standard for a C152. Edit: Should I experiment with stage2 norm for the npr step? 
I think there are still some infelicities in the table of norms and minE; I'm getting ludicrously high yield around 160 digits and, as you mention, very low yields at C152.

We've sometimes seen input sizes where the chosen bounds are too conservative, in that too many hits get found, but almost never the opposite.
Also, the numerical value of the skew that you find doesn't have very much to do with sieving quality, so it isn't a big deal if you find a poly with large skew. It usually is just an indication that your search is in an early phase, where you get a polynomial with a very good root score that requires really stretching the skew to achieve. 
nothing better in the 400420M range than what I already posted for the C176

It's not better than what Curtis got, but I'll include my best so far for posterity and comparison of skews and whatnot:

Each 5digit increase in size takes roughly double the effort to sieve and should have a corresponding increase in polyselect time. This C176, at roughly 20 digits larger than our other searches, deserves ~15x more effort than we have given the other numbers.
I've been putting ~3 days into the 155157s in this thread, which may be why I'm often getting better polys. I will be putting at least a week into my part of the C176 search, more if I/we don't find a "lucky" poly. If the three of us put a week each into it, we have a good chance to find a poly worth sieving with. For this search, I think that's 1.45e13 at minimum.
