I never checked the sieving sufficiency for the 93 ks. I just stopped when I got bored.
Now is the time to consider including 40005000!!! 14002000 was immensly popular and I suspect this drive will be too. imho It needs to gradually pull away from top5000 level.

Excellent ideas. By doing this, the project should have a large selection of nranges to choose from at any one time. I think having the higher nranges available will bring in a number of larger searchers. The lower ones should make it more fun for the smaller searchers. Of course I wouldn't suggest making them "hard limits" though. For instance, for now, the limit of k=14002000 could be n=1M but as we get higher k's searched closer to n=800K, then 900K, etc., then we would expand k=14002000 to n=1.5M or 2M while at the same time expanding k=3001001 up to n=4M or something like that.

I have been considering various options for future search ranges but after a discussion with Ian by PM, have decided to take his advice and get some private views from people on the future direction of the project.
If you are a regular or even a parttime searcher for NPLB, look for an Email within the next 2 days asking for input. I/we will use the prime notification Email addresses that people have entered in our database. Gary

Well well, I sent you an email about this very subject just before I logged on here. I must be Clairevoyant or something like that.
