[QUOTE=Andi47;171297]or run *only* the 25 digits level (i.e. 200 curves at B1=5e4), and THEN put it at the *end* of the queue.[/QUOTE]Preferably at the end of the 30 digit level queue after which it moves to the *end* of the 35 digit level queue, etc..

[quote=10metreh;171254]The t40 is still nowhere near completion because someone clicked "Stop" on it to make progress on another number.[/quote]
Sorry about thatI saw that apparently we'd already started a polynomial search on it, and figured that with all the B1=11M work that had been done, we had a full t40 complete which is plenty for this size number. Thus, I hit "stop" to avoid wasting the workers' time.

"ECM to high limits" already runs a number to 25digit level (120 curves @ 9e4). So your suggestion is not very helpful (in fact, the whole "preparing" thing is useless once you've run "ECM to high limits"). I'd go with smh's suggestion, with an addition that smaller numbers should be run first before larger numbers.

What about inserting the new one at a random position in the queue? Then randomly rotate the queue every few minutes.

840 curves @ 1e6 with b2 9e8 = ~10% of t40
850 curves @ 3e6 with b2 7e9 = ~39% of t40 363 curves @ 11e6 with default b2 = ~53% of t40 we are now at ~102% of t40 
Here is my final poly (used msieve 1.41).

[QUOTE=mdettweiler;171249]However, if nobody's interested in going it alone, then of course a team sieve is still workable (though this time we'd have to be especially careful not to oversieve too much). I can volunteer for the postprocessing again if nobody else is particularly keen on doing it.[/QUOTE] Let's do a team sieve, then.

that on it's own is ~80% of t40 
Meanwhile, I've started the sieve thread. I'm not a mod here [spoiler](yet)[/spoiler], so please could our worthy moderator put in the new poly and remove the "proposed" from its title?

Thanks
