Default some manual LLR work

I'm asking in a new thread, because I'm not sure where this should go...please be easy with me, I'm just a gentle Sheep.

I'd like some top-5000 work for a machine that I have using manual LLR (llrnet is not an option for this machine). It's a 2.4 GHz Core 2 Duo E6600, and I like to do reservations for about a weeks worth of work at a time. So how much do I reserve and from which thread?

I'm not sure just how long it takes your CPU to run an LLR test, but those files take about a CPU week on my 2.5 GHz Athlon dual core, and it says 4-8 CPU days in the post.
For future reference: I think this Software/instructions/questions thread is where you're supposed to ask things like this. http://www.mersenneforum.org/showthread.php?t=9890
Edit: Hmm, actually it seems that the questions thread I linked is supposed to be just for software questions. There's not really a thread I know of for general NPLB questions. I don't think anyone will mind a new thread for a question, or posting it in the not-quite-right place of the software/instructions/questions thread.

Yep, plenty of work in the first link here. We currently have manual files for n=371.8K-372K and n=392K-396K (assuming no reservations since I check last a few hours ago). 21 files = ~12-20 CPU weeks work depending on your machine.

Thanks! I'll head on over and grab two files (one for each core) and see how that goes. This is a fun project.
