Please post reservations and results etc. in the reservations thread, it makes it easier for me to keep track of them, and also easier to see what is still available if others make a reservation before I get around to updating the table.

Post a copy of the primes found to this thread if you want, as I will delete the messages in the reservations thread when the tables are updated.

BTW this is a top 5000 prime:

You found the prime 53858*5^33760-1 earlier, so this k has already been eliminated...

Not quite, we are trying to find a prime of the form k*5^n+1 (resp. k*5^n-1) to show that k is not a Sierpinski (resp. Riesel) number. One prime for each k is sufficient. I think it makes sense to record the smallest prime for each k, since this will minimise the time needed to verify the final proofs.
