actually stage 2 can be run on many cpu's as it can be separated in ranges. NFS will soon reach the limit of feasablity. ECM will need even more ram to find 60 or 70 digit factors. And most of the time P-1 are out of reach of large factors, especially when one prime power is large. We could team up to find one factor on M2137 and find large factors using P-1. Ecm is almost done to 45 digits. Would need to test it to a certain b1 on stage 1 and then assigned ranges of P-1 stage2. Would anyone be interested?
