For the record: A moderator gave davieddy a 6-month ban, not for the "breathing space" post, but rather a useless and crass response to kracker that was not approved.

And our affairs from England come too late:
The ears are senseless that should give us hearing,
To tell him his commandment is fulfill'd,
That Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are dead"

I am curious to what he said, since I only said one word in my post regarding him.

It is called the Golden Rule:

Good god I wish I had thought of that way to say it. Very nicely said.

I always took the approach of "We can TF 63M - 999M to 73 before ever contemplating TF to 74" vs "We can TF the work being done TOMORROW to 74 and worry about bringing the rest up to 73 and then 74 later when we're there"


David: Your predictions of us being knee-deep in shit by the end of the month have been wrong. Repeatedly. Whatever your theory is must be completely wrong. I'm a bit too busy at the moment but I will go dig up these predictions if you deny having made them.

Aramis kind of brings up an old point of mine. How long do you want us to TF to 73 for until we bring them to 74? We're obviously close-ish to having the firepower to do 74, at the very least. This means we're almost capable of TF to 73 twice as many exponents as we can LL. How much of a buffer do you want?

At worst, we release a few 73's (cue Chris to tell us about Spidy's ripcords). At best we TF extremely efficiently, using every bit of our firepower not a week too soon.

In your lovely situation of having a 50,000 exponent buffer, we put loads of time into TF that only gets LL'ed six months down the line. Inefficient.

Thanks for your support, but please let it go.

Nothing to see here; everything is fine....

Default GPU from 72

It appears George is letting standard factor assignments go to 72 bits in the 70M range.
