The NPLB project doublechecked k=3 from n=100K260K and checked it against the k<300 Rieselprime.org page a few months ago. No missing or incorrect primes were found. You're probably aware that Prof. Caldwell and some coharts had already doublechecked all k<300 up to n=100K several years ago so now all k=3 for n<260K has been doublechecked.
In checking that list vs. your list, I see a typo. Your prime at n=81330 should be n=80330, which would also affect 2 of your ratios. Other then that, your list should be absolutely correct up to n=260K.
NPLB plans to doublecheck all k=31001 up to n=260K by late 2009. So far, we have completed all k=325 and 401417.
