But i choose this one because i can't use that pc for anything else (except maybe ecm) and it's only available to me for a few days. PRPing takes only 15 minutes on my P4. The pc will be gone tomorrow morning and i didn't want to let it run idle. For the last year or two, i spent most of my cpu time factoring for a few projects (including Paul's). Unfortunately, Cunningham numbers are a bit to hard for my limited resources. I might be able to do a < c140 with GNFS, but my P4 has only 256MB RAM. I have a laptop with 2GB, but that one is used for work, and part of that memory is often needed. Besides, i'm not sure GGNFS is upto the job yet. Sieving on multiple pc's requires to much book keeping for the time i've currentely got. I'm open for any number you want to have factored, as long as it can be done in a reasonable amount of time.

Angels
We would still be computing the number of angels on the head of a pin unless we had adapted and explored.
The facts are: This is original thinking, adaptation and exploration in virgin territory It is simple, but not so simple, there are pitfalls for the unwary There is interesting mathematics if anyone wants to look at it Axn1's program is a masterpiece This is true 1+1=3, as I like to define human cooperation This is the shitzit right now Mr Silverman, have pity on us poor humans, nattering together and taking up your valuable bandwidth. Consider yourself flamed, or at least singed, as I am a pacific sort. Regards Robert Smith (aged 53 1/4)

What's in a name?
Silverman? Hmmm... sounds familiar. Are you related to Joseph H. Silverman who published (among others) the paper "Wieferich's Criterion and the abcConjecture" in the Journal of Number Theory?

Predicting the next octoproth.
I've been looking at the "weights" of certain bases again. Working as I defined it previously, W(157) = 62. Is the heaviest W(n) for n <= 200.
The next three heaviest are W(175) = 60 W(187) = 56 W(112) = 54 So the bases n = 112, 175, 187 should be good for finding octos.

double check
Ah, newpgen has caused some errors due to the large file size.
Or machine/Os cannot handle correctly. I am surprised that you are getting so much speed without errors. If this is true, then congradulations! I will tricheck thouroughly, with a belts and braces technique. TTn
