15 = 5 * 3
5 = factor
3 = cofactor

1260 = 7 * 5 * 36
7 = prime factor
5 = prime factor
36 = composite cofactor (will not be a PRP prime.)

Weren't the drum or cylinder drives single head and designed for more sequential access?
And at one point I heard that there were machines that pulled the cylinders out of an array to read them.

There was a thread (https://www.mersenneforum.org/showthread.php?t=23009) from 2018-2019 It went off in a not so great direction. Consider GIMPS as an initialism that morphed in to an acronym.

Do you agree that as any new single LL runs that pop up as suspect, that we should just do a fresh PRP on v30? Roughly the same amount of time to run the test, but savings if a LL-TC were needed.
