Default L4375B done

This popped up on the page and I managed to complete it in three real-time weeks on one machine (I'll admit it was an i9-7940X so quite a fast machine) - 2.5 days polynomial search, a bit of a gap while other jobs finished and I did the trial sieving, 12 days sieving, 1 day linear algebra.

32-bit LP, three algebraic large primes, alim=rlim=5e7, sieve Q=25M-75M (which is nice and round, but was determined by looking at yields incrementally rather than entirely in advance)

Notice how smooth the yield curve is when corrected for ideal count, and how the peak here is at alim. With this extra smoothness reasonable-sized trial sieving gives much more credible numbers; I'm not sure I'd have used 3lpa for things this small but it was clearly several percent better in the trial-sieve.

Expecting baby before next factor :)

Can you confirm the ideal count is the first number on the following line output by gnfs-lasieve4I14e (in this case over a range of 10k special-Q):
522 Special q, 3933 reduction iterations
If that's true how many ideals should I assume per 10M special-Q? This would be a big help trial sieving numbers for NFS@Home.

Thanks in advance.
