One of the scripts I run regularly checks for exponents that are assigned but have already been factored.

The most recent run showed:

Code:
Exponents assigned (LL testing) that already have a factor?

When I find cases like this, I re-report the factors to PrimeNet using the manual report page, under Dummy_Results account created by garo. This hopefully prevents an entirely useless LL test from being done... hopefully, the next time Prime95 updates its info with the server, it sees "this exponent is not assigned to you" and deletes it from the worktodo.ini file of whoever it was assigned to.

The factor did make it into the "weekly" data files (Dec 2 release), which is how I detected it, so presumably you got credit for it.

I haven't figured out how this situation occurs, but every week there are at least one or two cases of assigned exponents that already have a factor.
