Sheep- I plan to be at 75T by 15 Nov. Start at 75T, and any work you get done will be a bonus. I know sr1 isn't the easiest for you to run, so perhaps just run on a small handful of cores? I'll send the appropriate sieve file for sr1 presently.

After 15 Nov, I'll sieve at about 6T/week until catching the big sieve at 150T.

Gary- I have the identical Athlon laptop CPU, except for 64bit linux instead of windows (it also has Vista, which motivated me to adjust to linux on laptop). Your Core2s also appear to be laptop chips, so the LLR timings you get are surprisingly quick (due to memory speeds and other power-related issues, a laptop and desktop chip of same speed and type are not equal). I'll run some k=5 on the Core2-2850 and see how fast the timings are (I predict 350 seconds at 610k, but that would not be a scaling of your speed).
