Bruce normally commits only a small portion of his resources to the NFSNet sieving. For 2,823+/-, he used the big Condor cluster and blew through the sieving for each in about 2 days. They ended up significantly oversieved, so the LA was easier than usual. The smaller matrices fit in 4GB, so Bruce was able to complete the LA for both on a faster 4GB quad-core computer.

7,319- used a quintic, so the sieving was harder. We stopped perhaps a bit early, and ended up with a larger matrix running on a slower computer. It has about another 3 weeks to go.

We've been a bit disorganized of late, so we're not yet sure what will come after 10,287-. Perhaps 7,319+.
