I dug into the latest batch of 11 assignments.

I thought the only way to get these was by manually adjusting the exponent range. I was wrong. The manual gpu assignments page lets you select "Lowest exponent". That's how these assignments were reserved. An easy "non-mistake" for someone to make.

The manual GPU page no longer offers the "lowest exponent" option. Since these TF assignments were made in good faith, I have not unreserved them. Please let them complete in a reasonable time frame for a GPU.

"Lowest exponents (no longer supported)" just worked for me.
A good thing too, since that's how I keep my TF gpu fleet fed.
I saw the minimum exponent set to 60M, and manually bumped it to 90M.
It seems like "TF for first time LLs" ought enforce or at least default to a minimum exponent that is closely related to the recent or current milestone, but that is not what happens. (Maybe that option ought also be renamed, as part of LL/PRP migration.)

Setting minimum exponent, and maximum bit depth are useful to target effort where it will be useful.

Selecting lowest exponents is converted to what makes sense. What makes sense means most LL/PRP savings per unit of TF work. That translates to largest exponent for Mersennes that have been TF'ed to the same bit level.

Just to share... Someone reserved ~5,000 assignments in 100M as "Anonymous" yesterday.

This annoyed me, so I did the trick where GPU72's scripts reserved them all, and then immediately released them.

I grow tired of having to instruct my code to correct this kind of thing. It shouldn't be possible in the first place.

FWTW.

Edit: Oh, speak of the devil... It's happened again. No longer my problem.

What makes sense is sweeping optimal-depth TF ahead of the wavefront of P-1 testing and primality testing in an orderly way so the cpu time of P-1 testing and primality testing is not wasted by suboptimal TF. Once these computations occur on an exponent, the opportunity to save time by optimal TF is lost forever.
Issuing TF assignments for higher than optimal TF bit levels does not make sense.

El Dorko 2. Rather pitiful, you try to treat users with respect and in return we get our second miscreant.

The IP address is 77.111.246.5. Previously, when Dorko 2 was in the 53M range, he was using a TOR exit.

Would it be hard to make the server deny any TF assignments in like 53M-59M and 93M-108M ?

And back to 77.111.245.10 when Tor failed to get the latest 1000. It looks like Hern Labs in Sweden is home base for this human garbage.
