How many people have you managed to convince that base 12 is better? How many have you tried to convince? Is your failure to convince anyone here due to the ideas and reasons being lousy, or is...

Right, that's how we mean it too- "last" means "there will not be one after this one," or "chronologically final." Your equations don't factor anything, let alone RSA. You don't know how to...

Parameters were nearly the same as for RSA-240, except for increasing sieve region from A=32 to A=33 (a doubling of sieve area, equivalent to using...

False- if you know TF was done to 82 bits, you know to not bother with ECM at the 20-digit level, nor at the 25-digit level. Skip right to T30 (B1=25e4). Similar conclusions can be made about TF...

I think 1.93 is an excellent idea. mfb0=59 should produce a slightly larger matrix than 58, since more of the relations will have a largest-bit large prime. Sieving a few more relations should...

I view mfb and lambda both as methods to control the amount of wasted cofactor-splitting. For reasons unclear to me, CADO runs quite a bit faster (in extensive testing at 100-140 digits) with mfb...

I thought it was a finer control on mfb, specifically that mfb0 would be lambda0 * lpb0. But 31 * 1.88 is 58.28, meaning mfb0 of 58...

As a first effort, it went OK; hindsight shows that I started CADO at too low a Q (5M), leading to lots more duplicate relations than typical. The C197 from Aliq3366 started at Q=20M, and...

ETA on 12 cores of idle Haswell-Xeon is 1075 hr, using 36GB (according to top). I don't imagine it will remain idle, so it'll be 8 weeks or so to...

You're welcome to manually set your ECM runs to 250k in that range; the server will convert them to a sort-of-equivalent number of 50k curves for the running tally. While it won't change your...

Fine with me- we're not in a big hurry to grab a 201-202 for a 15e/home-CADO hybrid. I wager there's less than 10% chance anymore of msieve finding a winning poly for a composite at 200+ digits. I...
