So it's still possible to find 2 factors within the same bit of the same exponent. How about 3?

Glad I checked 2^67 to 2^68 of M11196881, so I had nearly no chance of missing 2 factors at once, but UncWilly still thought I made the mistake despite no additional factors were found by Team_Inspector afterwards. Last fiddled with by tuckerkao on 20210728 at 02:05

Can we move few factors from the 11.8M to the 11.9M?
We already found 96 factors for 11.8M (94 needed) and there is about 28% more to go from the range (like about 20 or more factors expected). (James' site and Chris' "twok table" didn't catch up with it yet, but the range is done). We don't know if we should finish all the range just to satisfy personal OCD, or move to a new range and save the time. Advice? Maybe split the GPUs and let one or two working in 11.8, and move the others to 11.4? Anyhow, "twok" will catch up soon, and there will be only 203 ranges to go. Or 202, as I see the people working in 41M only need a factor or two to get rid of that range too. Last fiddled with by LaurV on 20210728 at 02:30

People usually (heck, almost never) pick a specific exponent (or type of exponent) to work on. Only you and few others do. Quote:

Most of the PRPCF only took 3 hours on my PC, so it wasn't a big deal even if a factor was missing. Last fiddled with by tuckerkao on 20210728 at 04:04
