That's a cut down version of factMsieve.pl which just sanity checks the poly and reports varios stats about it. The most useful is the msieve rating which includes the e-score. Which is about right for SNFS 234.

 2019-11-18, 20:57 #146 Belteshazzar   Feb 2011 25 Posts Finally got Pell(613) though the parameters I used (yafu default) turned out to be far from optimal, see this other thread. The next remaining are 631 and 653. 631, the two semiprime roadblocks 709 and 787, and many of the other nearby remaining numbers can all use the same algebraic polynomial. So I wonder whether, if someone were to ever try to do 787 (301 digits), it might make sense for them to do something like the 'factorization factory' approach and knock out a bunch of the others too.
 2020-06-26, 17:10 #147 Belteshazzar   Feb 2011 25 Posts I factored several numerators of harmonic numbers for the sequence of their semiprimes http://oeis.org/A153357 . (This calls them Wolstenholme numbers but that appears to contradict standard terminology & should be fixed.) Numerator(H_371)=p49+p112 is in Numerator(H_377)=p33+p58+p71 is ruled out Numerator(H_391)=c169 has had t52 ECM (7550@43e6+5000@11e7), ready for NFS Numerator(H_421)=p33+p151 is in Numerator(H_436)=p49+p138 is in Numerator(H_472)=p40+c168 ruled out Numerator(H_476)=c207 has had t51 ECM Numerator(H_480)=p43+p168 is in It appears that 385, 414, 425, 451, 452 were already shown to be in the sequence years ago and these are all the candidates below 500.

I'm not sure what you mean by this. All the places I checked refer to these as the
Wolstenholme numbers.

Standard terminology is to refer to the numerators of the sums of 1/n^2, i.e. the generalized harmonic numbers H_{n,2}, as Wolstenholme numbers, not the numerators of the normal harmonic numbers. If you look at the bottom of A001008, to which A153357 refers, you find this comment:

 Changed title, deleting the incorrect name 'Wolstenholme numbers' which conflicted with the definition of the latter in both Weisstein's World of Mathematics and in Wikipedia, as well as with OEIS A007406. - Stanislav Sykora, Mar 25 2016
Hisanori Mishima's 'World Integer Factorization Center,' which had kept records for these and is linked from A153357, is probably the source of the confusion. He refers to numerators of any generalized harmonic numbers as Wolstenholme numbers, and uses the notation Wrn=Numerator(H_{n,r}). But Wolstenholme's theorem only deals with the numerators of harmonic numbers H_{p-1,1} and of H_{p-1,2}, not with all r.
