I'm not sure how to take 'larger'. Have all candidates been tested up to the range that we are starting at?

The P-value in the sieved file that you send is misleading. It only shows P=1G. I tried sieving for several hours starting at P=1G, 10G, 100G, and 1T and no factors were found. So I'm assuming that it was at least sieved past P=1T.

With the few candidates remaining, sieving would be a waste of time at this point. LLRing takes about 1.75-2.5 hours per candidate. It's unlikely that we'd get that kind of removal rate from just 900+ remaining candidates even if we found the correct point that it had been sieved to. It's faster just to test them out at this point.

Alas, we'll start anew at n=1M.
