1. A question mark is not a digit- so get rid of that symbol if you want msieve to understand the number you're giving it. Or do you mean msieve adds that character? That may be because msieve shouldn't be asked to handle a number that size.
2. What kind of factoring are you hoping msieve does on a 900-digit number? I think you're using the wrong tool; ECM is what you want to be using, since NFS won't work.
