 2007-05-11, 16:33 #2 1997rj7     Sep 2003 22×3×29 Posts Note that the range you selected is already complete to 2^63. To factor up to a given bit limit, place the following line in the prime.ini file: FactorOverride=XX Where XX = the bit level that you want to factor to. Factoring a range up to 2^68 will take a long time. You should either do this range to 2^64 or pick a new range. See the sticky thread "All available ranges" above for more information. Let us know what you decide.
 2007-05-12, 14:27 #3 sonjohan     May 2003 Belgium 1000101102 Posts First one is already finished to 2^68. No factor. Btw: the program correctly starts from 2^63 onwards. I've checked and I see that it takes about a day to finish to 2^68. There are 4847 checks to do in 47 -> 47.2 .... too long There are 2364 checks to do in 47 -> 47.1 .... too long --> So I guess 47M-47.2M to 2^64? Afterwards, is it 47M-47.2M to 2^65 or another range first?

No need to be sorry; it's all useful work ... and you learned some things.

Fine.

It's ... look around at the situation as it is then, consider how you feel about your participation so far, then pick whatever looks interesting to you at that time.

Perhaps -- try small amounts of several different types of work to see how you like each of them.

 2007-05-13, 10:44 #5 sonjohan     May 2003 Belgium 2·139 Posts I've been around for a long time. (Edit: Join Date: May 2003; but that's only the forum, I had 10 PC's running the program when I was at the university, and that was several months before.) 154 P90 years already, and I hope to keep on increasing. I just can't do first time tests on the Dual core, as the GCD stages take way too many resources(I know not for long, but I need to work on that PC), so I have it run doublechecks. The second processor does the factoring now, and my home PC does 10M digit research :D Last fiddled with by sonjohan on 2007-05-13 at 10:45

 2007-05-15, 14:40 #8 sonjohan     May 2003 Belgium 4268 Posts Perfect! It stopped in the middle of the factoring and went to the next exponent. Thanks. PS: It considers that the 72% it already did for 2^68 didn't happen. Just no factor to 2^67. CPU time lost

 2007-05-17, 21:04 #10 1997rj7     Sep 2003 22×3×29 Posts To send in results, simply e-mail your results.txt file to George. The frequency is up to you, but probably no more than every other week. That is how often the status files are updated.
