This leads to a ludicrous proof of compositeness and factorization: The fact that 223 divides 2^7363  1 though 223 < 7363 proves that 7363 is composite. Factoring 223  1 or 222, we get the prime factors 2, 3, and 37. And 37 divides 7363, the quotient being 199. Curiously, the factor 4816405503271 divides the "primitive part" (2^7363  1)/(2^37  1)/(2^199  1) of 2^7363  1. The cofactor (2^7363  1)/(2^37  1)/(2^199  1)/4816405503271 is composite.

P1 found a factor in stage #1, B1=494000.
UID: Jwb52z/Clay, M115693873 has a factor: 1952359233750913828524289 (P1, B1=494000) 80.691 bits. 
I've been running large P1 on 4.96M to 4.97M without much luck (3 factors in 84 attempts, P1 calculator predicts 12% increase in factor probability), with a success this morning! M4963463 has factor 740152403849563084825547533175743, 109.190 bits.
I've wondered whether these dry streaks are just bad luck, or if there is something wrong with my machine. I ran some P1 tests that had previously found factors and all factors were found again, so I would expect not (maybe something tends to go wrong in the longer runs but not in the shorter ones?) Does anyone have any suggestions/ideas for how better to test? 
[QUOTE=Denial140;607349]I've wondered whether these dry streaks are just bad luck, or if there is something wrong with my machine.
Does anyone have any suggestions/ideas for how better to test?[/QUOTE] The first question is valid, and the answer is  yes, both are possible. Consider this analogy: "I buy lottery tickets, fill in six numbers, and then scan them, and then wait to win. Sometimes I win twice in a row, and sometimes I have weeks and weeks without a win. I've wondered whether these dry streaks are just bad luck, or if there is something wrong with my filling the tickets. Maybe my pen is broken, maybe I not filling the bubbles completely so that the lottery scanner cannot read them?" Sure  both are possible. Re: luck  Same as the poisson process of drawing a card from a deck and expect an ace. Sometimes you will draw two aces in a row, maybe even three, and sometimes you can draw 50 times and not get an ace. For the second question  follow the analogy. Is there a better way to win in a lottery? Just like with the lottery, there are trivial solutions, for example with unlimited money buy _all_ the tickets, you will be guaranteed to win. Impractical though. 
[QUOTE=Batalov;607362]For the second question  follow the analogy. Is there a better way to win in a lottery? Just like with the lottery, there are trivial solutions, for example with unlimited money buy _all_ the tickets, you will be guaranteed to win. Impractical though.[/QUOTE]
Sorry, I was not clear  I mean specifically testing for machine errors without taking too long. 
Ah. Run the stability test (a.k.a. torture)  it is built in the program. Many folks run it once they have just built a new machine, for 24  48+ hours (best to run for several ambient temperature cycles  day/night. continuously). The key is  the code [I]knows [/I]the true answer so it can compare. *
It is hard to test otherwise (when answer is unknown). ____ * that actually reminded me to run that too,  summer is here. It is good to run the torture test at least once a year, too.
