That's too much work to complete all of it to n=1M. 800K1M is much more work than 600K800K. Also, notice that I said k=3001001 to n=800K. That means that the individualk drive would also have to be at n=800K. But with so many k's being possibly individually reserved, that may be a stretch. The nature of the drive is to allow individuals to progress more at their own pace. Notice that I state in the 1st post of the drive to plan on completing reservations within ~6 months. This is probably more realistic: k=4001001 to n=800K and [ 5075% of k's in individual drive to n=800K or 2540% of k's in individual drive to n=1M ] Gary

it seems like we are getting through it so fast
now i count i see 9/50 are complete and 2 reserved ks are above 900k there are also another 11 ranges reserved which are below 900k

Looks can be decieving! :) Ian, with resources clearly more than myself (or faster than myself, lol), has reserved almost all very lowweight k's and therefore easily completed them. For instance the highestweight k=315 has something like 5 times as many pairs as many of the lowweight k's. We may run a minidrive on 5 highweight k's starting in Jan. to help get some of them up past n=700K or 800K. Gary

k=147 is now at n=770K; nothing to report.
It's now on 2 cores so is moving along faster now.

k=289 doublecheck is now at n=760K; one prime was confirmed: 289*2^7282051 Each running on 2 cores. I'm suspending these efforts for ~2 weeks to put additional cores on the sieving drive. Gary

To report the ranges as nice and round numbers:
k=147 is now at n=800K k=289 is now at n=765K Nothing to report. Both running on 2 cores each.

I just now moved all machines to port 8000 so I'll post a couple of statuses now:
k=289 just completed to n=800K and unreserved. k=147 is at n=820K; continuing to n=1M after the rally. Nothing to report. I assume that no one will pick up k=289 in the near future since it is likely a double check to the next known prime at n>1M. But if anyone does, I have a sieve file to P=26T for n=800K1M.

k=147 is now at n=857K still running on 2 cores to n=1M. No primes since n=600K.
I'll likely pause it at n=~900K to do some sieving on another effort. On another note: Karsten, please reflect k=31 as fully searched to n=1.3M with no gaps. As reported in the doublecheck drive, it has now been fully doublechecked up to n=500K. You can also take my name off of it since Steven at RPS has it reserved for n>1.3M. Thanks, Gary

k=147 was stopped at n=874K about a week ago to start on the k=10032000/n=500K1M sieving effort. No primes found since n=600K.
It will start back up in ~2 months after the sieving is done.

k=147 has started back up. It is currently at n=878K. Continuing on to n=1M on 2 cores.
