 2020-03-11, 06:07 #233 gd_barnes     May 2007 Kansas; USA 3×11×307 Posts PFP seems to have lost interest in base 385 at a low search depth for > 4 months so I did some testing on many of the exponents. All exponents with a driver or with a factor of 3 have been searched to >= 102 digits. All exponents without a driver and without a factor of 3 have been searched to >= 105 digits. 385^40 terminated. :-) 385^26 is now at 120 digits. To be consistent with most of the other bases that stop at the first exponent with a starting value >= 120 digits would it make sense to remove the exponents >= 48 ? No reservation. PFP also seems to have lost interest in base 1155. Would it make sense to remove his reservation on that one too? I might work on it at a later date but no reservation now.

 2020-03-12, 11:01 #234 gd_barnes     May 2007 Kansas; USA 3×11×307 Posts I have trivially terminated 385^47, 1155^35, 1155^37, and 1155^39. You might consider releasing the reservation of all exponents for base 1155 due to long inactivity. Also would it make since for base 1155 to delete all exponents >= 40 to be consistent with most other bases? No reservation. Last fiddled with by gd_barnes on 2020-03-12 at 11:02
 2020-03-13, 15:12 #235 garambois     Oct 2011 227 Posts OK, page updated. Thanks to all. @Happy5214 : A lot of thanks. Done. @gd_barnes : A lot of thanks. Done. Base 385 : OK, I deleted exponent 50, but not exponents 47, 48 and 49, because calculations had been made for those exponents. Calculations of 385^49 (trivial end) not completed, do you want to do the calculations? Base 1155 : OK, I deleted the exponents 42 to 50 because no calculation had been started for them. I didn't delete the lower exponents because calculations were made for them. It really doesn't matter, on the contrary, if for some bases, the size of the starting numbers exceeds 120 digits... As long as someone's done the calculations, of course ! This is anyway the case for example for base 2 where I pushed well beyond 120 digits for the starting numbers. My own calculations : Base 10 complete and exponents 95 and 107 non trivial termination of calculations. Base 11 almost complete. Base 12 and 82589933 reserved for me.

 2020-03-17, 17:18 #237 VBCurtis     "Curtis" Feb 2005 Riverside, CA 418810 Posts 13^26, 13^28, 13^32 are released at 130+ digits each. Working on 13^34 and 13^36 now. Planning to work pairs of sequences for a while.

I am assuming that your work situation is different than normal at the moment. Are you even in at work?

 2020-03-17, 22:31 #239 VBCurtis     "Curtis" Feb 2005 Riverside, CA 22·3·349 Posts Courses at my university are online-only the rest of the school year. This week is finals- writing online finals has been a bit of a challenge, but they're written. Most University of CA campuses run on quarters rather than semesters, thus "finals" now for winter term. The campus is physically closed- faculty are not even allowed to go in to their offices. I hope they don't cut power to my office building, as I have 32 cores running projects there! Next task, learning how to use remote-video-recording software so I can lecture from home.

 2020-03-18, 23:04 #242 PFPoitras   "Patrick Poitras" Oct 2019 2×33 Posts Hey guys! Just so we're all clear, I was running the integer powers on a computer at work that was being used as a heater more than as a computer. I have since moved to another company, and had planned to recover the data (among other things) before leaving, but my "two-weeks" period was cut short by a strict work-from-home directive from HQ, due to coronavirus. Consider all my reserved sequences for this subproject to not be reserved anymore for the time being.
