By the time I would grab 10k and try to work only the upper half, you would be finished with the lower 4096 and downloading the same ones I'm working. Incidentally, I'm just becoming able to assign several machines back to the certificate task once again.

OTOH, since I can have a more timely direct control over my machines, would you rather I work the 306 dds and you take the others?

For now, I'll search for a way to d/l well above the lower bounds and see what I come up with.

Anyone else, feel free to add to this...
If you would like to take the 306's, and I take everything over (through however high I go before more appear), that's fine. I suppose you could use FactorDB's multiple directories option to get (e.g.) 3k numbers to distribute to each of 3 machines, if they were of comparable speed.

As such, I'm uploading all the work I completed in the 306 dd numbers, and will start working upwards from 307.
