1) not enough ECM was run on this number? 2) the ECM program is faulty? 3) something else?

I tend to use 'ECM miss' to mean 'if I'd run ECM instead of snfs, I would have found the factor more quickly'; I appreciate this is probably not the normal use of the term.

Yesterday, I just thought to give it a try and run a bunch of curves on it overnight, and... Code:

At the moment, the server is about halfway through handing out curves with B1=3M, so the expected size of factors to be found will be around 40 digits or perhaps a little less. That the p40 factor above has not yet been found by the ECMnet clients is not at all surprising. Paul

But even at 2*P45 there would be a ~14% probability of missing a 45 digit factor. It might have taken a lot more curves, and cpu time.

Should I run some ECM curves via yoyo@home on it?

There's already an ecmnet server (port 8194 on the machine 83.143.57.194) set up with these numbers in; I think to some extent they're intended as a gentle introduction for the NFS methods, and throwing CPUyears of ECM at them might be inappropriate.
