It's indeed very timeconsuming to check for confirmed primes but i found some problems so far:
There're some primes not listed yet in the summary although the testrange was higher. Here are the issues so far:
2055: done to n=400k (S.Tjung) but missed n=216369 > maxn=250k
2085: done to n=400k (S.Tjung) but missed n=193924 > maxn=250k
2171: done to n=1.0M (Beyond?) but missed n=101974 > maxn=250k
2175: done to n=400k (S.Tjung) but missed n=183243,224093 > maxn=250k
I've therefore set the testrange down to n=250k.
More work will be done slowly the next weeks!
Don't worry, Gary, you got enough time.

That's why NPLB includes ALL k's in our drives (unless reserved and we would "run over" existing reservations). Way to go all! We found primes missed by others! Even the nontop5000 primes are important.
On the 5 or so k's excluded from the 11th drive, we'll (mainly me but also whomever else might want to help) will be double checking those ~5 k's for n=425K600K close to the time that the 11th drive is nearing n=600K. I'm shooting for midyear on it getting there. Late in 2008, such a double check netted a missing top5000 prime!
k=24002600 is really messy so I'll work on sorting it out and getting a file link for it on Monday. It's high on my task list now.
Max, good idea on just doing file links instead of listing the last 100k or so in the post. That's a bit of a nuisance. Yeah, I/we will just do file links for all of the primes...well, at least for all n=50K250K primes. The file links are small and use little posting space. With all n=50K250K primes in links, we'll likely be able to show all or a large portion of n=250K350K primes as line items in the post. That's kind of a personal preference on my part. :)
Max, one more thing. All of Lennart's k=24002600 primes are already shown in the 1st post here. I'll just take the primes file that you already sent me from Bruce (or that he sent me?) and add those to it. For primes that they both found, I'll just show both their names as having found them, with whomever found them first listed first. In other words, you don't need to do anything for me to be able to do that. That's my Monday task. :)
