This popped up on the Mersennus.net page and I managed to complete it in three realtime weeks on one machine (I'll admit it was an i97940X so quite a fast machine)  2.5 days polynomial search, a bit of a gap while other jobs finished and I did the trial sieving, 12 days sieving, 1 day linear algebra.
32bit LP, three algebraic large primes, alim=rlim=5e7, sieve Q=25M75M (which is nice and round, but was determined by looking at yields incrementally rather than entirely in advance) Notice how smooth the yield curve is when corrected for ideal count, and how the peak here is at alim. With this extra smoothness reasonablesized trial sieving gives much more credible numbers; I'm not sure I'd have used 3lpa for things this small but it was clearly several percent better in the trialsieve. Expecting baby before next factor :) Last fiddled with by fivemack on 20200522 at 07:47

This is (AFAIK) my personal ECM record:

This P50 was found in just 410 curves at B1=3M. I lack patience and my hardware is really old, so this saved the sequence from exceeding the selfimposed C120 cofactor limit for NFS.

Congratulations. For a moment I thought you had done the leading edge, but it is still nice to have this one done as well. So I see EM49 is now the smallest not completely factored number in this line (and EM52 of course).
