We already have the freedom to enforce this, by voting for someone else.

On the other hand, laws that "save us from ourselves" aren't always a bad idea.

Best from this range was worse- 2.412e-9 CADO score, 8.55e-16 cownoise score.

Trying one more range: 50-100M, incr=4620, P=12M.

No, it just uses a smaller range of sigma. Each individual sigma has the same chance to find a factor, if one is to be found. Doesn't matter if the possible-sigma pool is 1 to 2^50 or 1 to 2^60.

3366_2224 is in postprocessing.

606M raw relations yielded 483M uniques, enough to build a 35.9M matrix at TD 124. It'll take 3 weeks to solve.
