Invalid Expirations
Hello All,
Can an admin fix a bunch of invalid expirations on my account? On January 16th I received a bunch of bogus expirations. It seems like any factors found caused that exponent to be listed as expired. I shouldn't have any TF expirations at all. The assigned and expired dates are the same or only one day apart. Can my account be checked for other occurrences of this? Here's the list of exponents that I know of: 500766061 500766589 500741207 500742679 500743171 500767307 500767507 500743939 500745439 500748883 500750059 500771627 500774789 500755733 500781227 500780383 ...others?... Also, there's odd behavior getting manual assignments in the 500501 range. I set the desired exponent to 73, but it has been giving me 7274 every time for a week or two. I've been doing the 7274 TF's but would prefer to just get one range at a time as requested.

I think this is due to the assignments being so light that it's being assigned as TF to 74 instead of just 73. Also, you will be assigned the exponent until you turn in any results. This means you can get assigned an exponent to factor to 74 for example, and factor it to 80. As long as you don't turn it in halfway through you will still be assigned the exponent. Same goes for factoring it lower if it's giving you 7274, if you only want to factor to 73 for whatever reason you can just change the 7274 to 7273. When you turn in this factored to 73 result you should be unassigned the exponent. (I don't think Primenet keeps track of exponents being assigned to factor higher than just the next range, allowing you to only factor to 73 and turning in the result.) Edit: I don't know about the expiration's though, but it seems you were credited for the results and factors found, so assuming you're not factoring higher than the factor found you should be good. (You'll still be credited GHzDays if you do end up factoring above a found factor, and it doesn't matter if you have the exponent assigned or not.) Edit2: Just realised I'm doing 7274 Factoring on sub 500M exponents (499M) :) Last fiddled with by lisanderke on 20210124 at 16:07
