Shortterm goal
I was wondering about the shortterm goal of this project. Take all numbers up to 71 bits?
I think I'm going to do that. Thoughts? Carlos

Anyway, from the Elevensmooth project page: Code:
Level 8 will be eight candidates trial factored to 74 bits. Level 7 was seven candidates trial factored to 73 bits. Level 6 was six candidates trial factored to 72 bits. There will be nine steps from Level 7 to Level 8: getting an eighth candidate to 73 bits and getting each candidate to 74 bits. Having most candidates levelled at 71 bits would be a valid subgoal, as there is less work to do. Luigi

Luigi,
I found that I can take a number up to 71 bits in less than 24 hours. So looking at your idle exponents stats page you have 48 numbers left to take up to 71 bits. If I bring more power to the project I can achieve this goal in less than 48 days or until the end of the year. Carlos

When I look at stats I only see more two members running OBD and both started on 20051030. The rest of the reserved numbers are stopped since 2004 and 200504, so I suppose this is a dead project. Anyone would like to comment? Am I wasting my time with this project.

I'm trying to clear up the reserved exponents for more than 1 year. Easier exponents have been checked before, and maybe we'll release a new batch starting at 60 bits as soon as most of the old ones will reach 70 bits. Luigi

Thanks for your post. Just found a factor on M3321932819. Please see the Checkout Thread.
