In the past couple decades, I have been mainly working on factored numbers in the range 3M. In recent months, I added the unfactored ones to my list. But since there is a common effort in the ranges below 30M for unfactored ones. I will leave the field open for you all in that range. There are plenty of factored ones to keep me happy for another decade; I hope!

My first attempt at a status update.
I officially started on this project April 16; however unofficially it was midJanuary when I decided my next project would be this one and I started using the prescribed bounds to complete my last TWOK ranges.
Some of you started working here in March. So if no one objects I will arbitrarily choose March 1 as day 0. Also, I don't know of any way to easily determine what method was used to find a factor (TF, ECM, P1, P+1). And I only know how to easily report newly factored exponents; not total factors found including extra factors for alreadyfactored exponents. I'd like to be able to include a count of exponents remaining to P1 but I'm having trouble determining the "guidelines". This is where mind is at (whenever it is not wandering off somewhere else): 1. I use mersenne.ca to list for every exponent of interest (under 20? 30? 40M?) a. Current bounds and TF level b. Proposed new bounds 2. Then I need to determine the current and proposed P1 success percent. a. I have the source for prob.php but I'd prefer a much simpler approximation that I could make into a formula. b. I'd be content if it was even within 0.5% or less given my proposed target is in the 3% range. c. I'd like to believe it could be approximated with a "quadratic??" taking into account: Exponent, TFLevel, B1 and B2. d. It just occurred to me that with all the ECM done in the low ranges the calculated P1 success percent will NOT be very accurate unless it is also taken into account. 3. Propose what success differential is worth pursuing and count those; maybe something around 3%??? a. I observe that some of you are methodically P1'ing every exponent if your ranges; I have no problem with this...it's your rig. So until someone more knowledged enlightens me I will start with this to report total new factors with each update: PS: The ToDo is arbitrarily Proposed/Current B1 * P/C B2 > 100 ... and I currently only have data up to 20M for this. Code:

I started on 03222022 so you missed a few exponents in the 4.2M range 4.20M complete with 12 factors found 4.21M complete with 15 factors found 4.22M complete with 17 factors found 4.23M complete with 7 factors found 4.24M @ 37% with 7 factors found so far. current total 58

I'll get to work on 8.2  8.3
Currently using an 10400f with about 4ghz, and 8 GB of ram. Edit: Appears someones already hit those, will keep searching for an untaken assignment. Second Edit: I'll just work on the ones that have been missed. Last fiddled with by shatterdpixel on 20220513 at 05:31
