We got the Christmas present we wished for

I'm hoping we and any newcomers can get the exponent "n" upto 3,000,000 by the end of 2006. By my calculations I'd say we are due to find a prime before n=3M. Exactly where the prime is hard to guess...

Sieving is nearly complete -- divisor=236,000,000,000,000 (236T) is our cut-off point. It is going to be more efficient to do LLR calculations on Athlons than it is to find new factors with NewPGen
