Here comes the biggest (so far) PRP of 2012 (7th overall according to http://www.primenumbers.net/prptop/prptop.php).

Thanks! Verification was a real pain though, as pfgw does not support resuming of n+1 tests, which I have learnt the "hard way"

If it is not reserved, Borys, I'd like to take GM 22.5M range.
(I've also already done 33.1M before I found this thread. Didn't want to collide with existing effort, so I shot too high perhaps. I based the estimate on your Nov/2012 PRP in 1.88M vicinity.) To the best of your knowledge, Borys, is this the best thread to coordinate this search? I've just noticed that there are vague ideas about GM/GQs on the Primegrid's forum. EDIT: Not that it means that they are acting upon it... I meant to say that other people might be also running similar searches. Boris Iskra, too, maybe?

22.5M is not reserved so go ahead (I've got a feeling there is a prime)
I would encourage you to test both for GM and GQ  it will take more time but would be more complete and in line with my search so far. BTW: I can provide you with a 48bit prefactored file  just let me know where to send it As far as coordination is concerned I am not aware of anyone else searching for GM/GQ at the moment, although it's not entirely impossible Also AFAIR there is a GQ gap below n=1M that was not tested by anyone so far.

If we could set up a PRPnet server for test GM/GQ that would help coordinate the search alot. I would also like to donate some CPU cycles to this search.
