 2005-10-26, 02:42 #2 JHagerson     May 2005 Naperville, IL, USA 22·72 Posts The "*" indicates to factor, followed immediately by an LL primality test. The "F" might actually mean the same thing. The factor depth limits have been adjusted in the Prime95 application, but I am under the impression that they have not been adjusted on the Primenet server. Therefore, there are some exponents that a "current" Prime95 client (version 24.11 and later) returns as sufficiently factored that the server treats as needing further factoring. You have both exponents assigned to you for LL testing. You may first see a P-1 factoring test, but this will be followed by the LL primality test. The P-1 test attempts to actually find a factor; the LL test is Boolean, it returns not-Prime or Prime. The more memory you can assign to a P-1 test, the more likely the test is to find a factor. An LL test requires relatively little memory. The LL test is completely processor bound. Personal question: Are you dominicanpapi from Project Gutenberg? Either way, welcome aboard!

The server reporting tools are pretty buggy.

No actually. I actually know over 10 people who have tried to get my name as an AOL/AIM screenname, but alas the name is taken by me!! So I wouldn't be surprised if there are dominicanpapis all over the place. (It was taken for gmail pretty quickly, for example.)
