Default Forcing testing of F14[2^(2^14)+1] question

is it possible to both force mprime to do ecm on F14 AND upload it periodically? I know how to do manual testing, but between my mood disorder and my tendency to frequently switch between projects, I think it's best if it's as automated as possible.

I think the mood disorder comment may have thrown people enough that they didn't comment. I'm not crazy, at least not when I'm taking my medication(which I've been doing consistently for over a decade), just a little sick, enough that complex tasks can be a problem.

I'm not looking to turn this into a Soap Box thread, just trying to get some help. My numbers don't finish until at least the 14th, so I don't need an answer immediately, but I appreciate any help. :)

You cannot do it in an automated way.

You can, however, come close. Create a worktodo.txt file with a ton of ECM lines for F14. They look like this:

ECM2=k,b,n,c,B1,B2,curves_to_do[,"comma separated list of known factors"]

These lines should get registered with the server and results reported. If you look in undoc.txt for the UnreserveDays option you can create a worktodo file with years of work in it.

Edit: Worked perfectly, thanks.
