17*2^n1
k=17 has been reported as continuously tested to n=205,000 but there are 5 more primes found for larger exponents [the largest for n=601158]. With respect to reported n_max, k=17 is by far the largest "hole" in the k<300 group. The intention of this project is to extend the range of tested and reported exponents and to find new primes. k=17, although not a multiple of 3, is a very highweight k and the probability of new primes for large n's is high. There is also a limited possibility of new primes for n<600k if some ranges were not checked, but there is no way to know.
Since about 3 weeks ago Templus has been sieving k=17 for [I]n[/I] in the 205k  2M range. The first block, n<300k sieved to 850bn is ready for testing. Please consider testing a file or two if you have an idle machine. Thank you.
