We now number seven. I have just taken 300,000 to 400,000 out of the sieve leaving 42423 candidates in there -- it had sieved upto NewPGen's p=553,420,892,818. I timed a PrP test on my Athlon 1GHz for 3*2^47000-1 at 3,600 seconds or exactly a hour meaning that NewPGen's new cut off point for 'n' between 400,000 and 500,000 is 10 plus minutes. Meanwhile I have started to issue blocks of 5000 from 300,000 to 400,000; there are nineteen blocks left for anyone to help test -- please email me at paulunderwood@mindless.com to get a block.

[Edit: should be 3*2^470000-1]
