Since keys are generated by an algorithm, which can be brute forced with enough calculations, why would a master key be insecure?

The master key is what I'm describing as a compound key, so if...

StopAfterFactor=0 for prime95/mprime

I have a low spec laptop running TF-LHM. Since it only takes a few hours to complete a bitlevel it seems pointless to not complete the bitlevel after a factor is located. Is there a similar...

SievePrimes is too big for the current assignment

I was curious as to whether testing M100069 and M106033 to ^72 would uncover any factors for these as yet completely unfactored exponents.

I started running M106033 TF ^66-^71 in stages on mfakto...

LL results are missing from M106033
