(both gathered from the original base 4 thread)

I got that new dat file right after that, but now seem to have lost it.

as for the *current* file, i.e. the one that we have right now going up to 1 million (base 4) that has been sieved to 7.5T. iirc the program that I used to split up a dat file into the corresponding .npg files just puts a (mostly) bogus top line on them.

rest assured that when Jean's reservations and this one get to 1 mil it'll be an even playing field again and all of the candidates will be tested up to the 1 mil mark

OK, thanks. Sounds good.

In the mean time, n=885K-890K is complete; no primes.
