How do you find these 'k'-s? Do you first sieve for a range 1 < k < 2^32 with a given 'n' for the form k*2^n+1, and after that you use that sieve as seed for a sieve for the form k*2^n-1? And use those results as seed for another sieve for another form, etcetera etcetera? Or is there are another (sieve-)program that can help?

Quite interesting numbers though!
