Leading Edge
Hey all,
It's been quite some time since I've posted on the forums but I have still been here in heart! I have a couple quick questions on what's been happening since I lack the requisite knowledge to do this kind of query on PrimeNet. Where is the current leading edge for both firsttime LL testing and for trial factoring? Where is the "main" focus range for LL testing at the moment? Thanks!

http://v5www.mersenne.org/primenet/ the leading edge of LL is basically dead on 51,000,000. And the TF's are leading in edged in 71,000,000. The "main focus" of LL seems to be between 47,000,000 and 51,000,000.
