of 79e6. B2 = 7.7e11 ... wow. The step2 factor of 7.23e11 is just barely in range. A whole bunch of large step1 factors; both limits fully used. More than three years since my p67. Guess I can stop apologizing for having bumped Paul's p57 out of this year's top10. Congrats to Yoyo and BOINC. Bruce

Okay: That's big, man

Found probable prime factor of 68 digits: Damn, man. I particularly love the "man" at the end of the thread title, man.

Ran it myself, man
Did anyone else run this themselves, just to enjoy the feeling, man? I learned, once again, how machinedependent gmpecm can be. This was on a Windows XP laptop, using a nonetoorecent version, man.
Guzzled twice the memory, and took three times as long, man. Heh. Code:

Nice pair!

Nitpickers? On this forum?
How dare you, Sir! I deeply resent the implication! What time do you close? What time do you go to bed? I could come back then... (Make dumb joke that 10^711 is the largest 71digit number ever to be factored, and someone will reply with a correction.) Actually, nitpickers should be the better term. Or has it been in usage long enough for the compound to be a sensible choice these days? Speaking of which: Is "analretentive" supposed to be hyphenated, or not?

Hehe. Not on this forum, no, never.
But think about this (for your consolation): by your standards, some your latest factors were not ECM misses unless they were under 68digits or were 2^{n}1. The PS3 code (so far) was specialized for this form* (and one is left wondering if it was special for prime n's). They may have already extended it to other forms, but our fate is to read about it in the newspapers... __________ *) More food for nitpickers: they called their targets (quote)Mersenne numbers(/quote).

exponents. (Yes, I'm expecting multiple replies to the contrary.) I think it's part of the mersenne project; we have M_n and P_n, and the notation is certainly not restricted to prime exponents. Meanwhile, on the _NEW_ p73 by PS3 + ecmgmp, we're still waiting for sigma and the group order; maybe not so close to the B1/B2 limits this time? A second one goes miles towards showing that the first one is the result of a reproducible experiment. Bruce (What newspapers? We heard it first here, sounds like Raman saw Sam's page first?)
