With the notable exception of Aramis, Foetus Boy seems more up to speed on this topic than anyone except me, and it seems that includes George.

You will understand this mildy mathy point though:

From the point of view of the LL assignment seeker, a 69M exponent TFed to 74 will take 30% longer to test than a 60M exponent TFed to 73.
Furthermore it will be (60/69)*(74/73) = 0.88 times as likely to be prime.

That is what I meant by "unappetizing fare", and this cannot do anything but slow the assignment rate.
Remember that maximizing this rate is the sole purpose of these heady bit levels and of this debate.

Point taken. Wow! I had no idea that The Sopranos ran that long.

What James' stepped curve shows is that GPUs should be directed entirely to TF, and that the bit level should be determined by available firepower.
However James' steps occur when the exponent increases by 21/3, and so do David's firepower-limited steps.
Now ain't that as cute as it is unsurprising?

 Thus, with unlimited GPU firepower we'd factor everything up to James' limits. With less than unlimited firepower, we'd always do the TF with the biggest payoff factor everything up to David's limits. Heck, even davieddy might agree with such a strategy.

 In practice, will implementing such a strategy make much of an impact? Are there significant numbers of exponents in the 55M-64M range factored to only 2^72 being released by PrimeNet each night?
No. But if you and Chris wish to persist tidying up mucking about behind the wavefront, the cost is raising my cut-off points.

Heck, even garo might agree with such a strategy.

It is: bitlevel is proportional to (TF firepower/LL firepower) * exponent3 . END OF STORY. BTW do you think there are any GPUs out there which don't belong to GPUto72?

Sure enough 1500 available LL assignments between 63M and 69M went AWOL between 1400 and 1500 just now.

The crowd outside are clamouring for bread, Marie Antoinette.

1. Everything being assigned for LL'ing has been TFed to at least 74, and P-1ed.

2. This work (read: LLing) needs to be done.

3. Over 50% of LL assignments won't get a single cycle done on it.

3.1. Over 80% of LL assignments will be "recycled" after it is abandoned.

4. Where, approximately (based on some hard math, please), is the next MP expected to be? In the 60s, or 70s?

5. We have the fire-power to pull this (read: TFing to 74) off!

1. Pigs still airborne (just).
2. and LLers like to do it in ascending order.
3. No because they want a LOWER one.
4. Poisson. ~50% chance of it being <80M.
