Yay!
Fantastic find! They're all primes too. Three new largest octoproths.

Compression
Because there were too many octo's with small bases I've zipped up the complete list of octo's for bases n<=42.

Octo RMA 1.74 delay
I've been sick lately, and have not made much progress with octo code, but I know now, exactly how it will be integrated.
Great work 15k'ers! TTn

New most wanted n=87
I've been trying to find the smallest octos for each base. Lots of success... however n=87 is a stubborn base. Sieved upto 4*10^12, and no success.
Bedtime now.

May I ask: With so many other established computational projects already available, why do this one? I accuse noone. However, I suspect that the answer is: "Because this project is new, it is relatively easy to get results". Let me quote John Kennedy: "We choose to go to the moon and do the other thing... Not because they are easy, but because they are hard." There is little reward in using other people's software to do easy computations. Rewards come from succeeding at something that is hard. The satisfaction one derives from solving a problem is commensurate with the level of effort.

Sometimes relatively easy tasks are best attempted by people with relatively lowly resources. They free up the people with massive resources from having to clear them up for completeness sake. That is why I am factoring 6,768L.c130 personally rather than using the grossly disproportionate resources of NFSNET. I leave open completely the question of whether everyone has the same value function. Paul
