Yea, my silicon is a bit dated: 2x 10core Ivy Bridge xeon @2.6ghz, 1x 12core haswell xeon @2.5ghz.
My choices for B1 across the board are based on the lowest B1 that get k=2 and are bigger than the standard B1 for a Tlevel: T45 2e7 T50 6e7 T55 15e7 T60 42e7 or 65e7 (65e7 is k=3, which means B2 jumps by 50% over B1=420M) Each of these is at least as fast to complete the related Tlevel as standard B1 choices, with the bonus of contributing a bit more chance to find a larger factor. Above T60, memory restricts our choices a bit ekeing out 5% more speed becomes secondary.

4800 curves complete at 42e7.
I'm moving one machine to poly select for this number, while the other 20 cores continue on ECM at this size. Poly select is on CADO, 5e6 to 5e7 with incr 4620, P=3M, and nq 15625. A run from ~100k to 5e6 is welcome from any contributor, incr 420 is likely best down there.

I'm just getting my "farm" settled back in from the recent task of upgrading everything. If I can, I'll try your suggested range this evening, if no one else steps up before then.

My best polys so far. The skew could be lower.

I didn't turn up anything near 1e14.

ECM progress: 7200@40e7 and 26000@42e7. Together with Curtis's work shall we call that enough?
I'd help out with the polyselect but Gimarel's polys all break the old c196 record so I don't think there would be much point.

I'm at 6000 @ 42e7, calling it quits. I agree that's enough.
I also agree that Gimarel's records plus the two CADO efforts Ed and I put in are easily enough poly select. I'll testsieve the best CADO and Gimarel's polys in a day or two, and get the job posted to the new 16esmall queue on NFS@home by Saturday. Ed, that gives you until Wed morning to supply a poly! If you get something within 5% of Gimarel's score, I'll testsieve it. My poly search will finish Tuesday evening.

Should we see if Max would like to spin any of these? * I might do some experimentation today while this continues to run, by trying to run a separate machine to work on what I have. But, I really haven't tried this before, so I'm not sure how how to approach it and how it may turn out. Then, again, what are the odds that the best poly would be found in the last few hours of the search? (Since Gimarel's scores are new records, I'd hate to beat them so soon. But, then again, he does have some others.)

I'd just let it run; rootopt will only take a couple hours, and it's not like I'll be waiting on you Wednesday in any case.
