But if we limit our search on F12 nd F13 (no more than half GB of RAM and 6 hours per WU) I think we may receive some help from other teams.

There is no need to use the manual submission page, Fermat results are reported to PrimeNet in the usual way.

So we currently have
F12: 57,363 of 360,000 for 65 digits F13: 82,193 of 112,000 for 60 digits Now we probably can take F13 to the next level, and start on 65 digits. But what happens when we get one or both to the end of the 65 digits level without finding a factor?

Also, are we certain that the mprime program is able to go that high?

Then it was modified to "B1 = 260,000,000". Now it is at "B1 = 800,000,000" (BTW, I never understood why it's B1 = 800M instead of 850M as proposed by GMPECM gurus). So I expect George (or someone else for him) will add the new range as soon as it becomes available Last fiddled with by ET_ on 20160831 at 15:18

The work curve has a very flat minimum. It doesn't matter very much whether you run more curves at a lower B1 or fewer at a higher one, as long as you don't push it too far. To an excellent approximation, the product B1*#curves is the figure of merit.
