Some updates on k=19:
 I'm at k=682,000. I'll post the residues once I get past 700,000.  Progress has been slow because of more time spent sieving. 517700600000 was sieved to only 10 billion , while 600K680K was sieved to 179 billion. Currently, I'm sieving 682K5682K, and I'm at 702 billion. I'll continue sieving for another week or so, and then I'll be LLR testing that range for a looong time.......... Of course, I'll donate the file of presieved candidates to RPS if I get bored before finishing the range.

Do you intend to test this "k" till n=5*10^6? How many candidates is there left per range of n=1000?
I don't know how heavy this k is, but in my case, I am testing k=25, which sieved to 3,3T @ 1000000<n<800000 leaves me with ~37 candidates per every range of n=1000, and it will take me several months (56) to complete it on 2.2GHz A64 machine running 24/7...

There are about 31 candidates per range of n=1000 for my k.

k=101 tested till n=900000.
I'm still working on it... c'mon primes... stop hiding

Tested to 500,000. No more primes... yet.

k=243
Rob kindly informed me that he is still working on k=243=3^5. So far he tested the following ranges: 300400k, 650745k, and 800k1M.
He found primes at n = 387836, 670891, and 744442. He is now working on gaps in the 260800k range and on n>1M.

k=289
Congrats to Bo (L6) on a nice, megabit prime:
289*2^10981171 (330569 digits) Appearantly, he checked k=289 continuously at least from n=500k but there is no way to know for certain because he is not in touch with us nor does he report his completed ranges to Wilfrid Keller. This is his 5th k=289 prime.

k=19 is tested to n=700K, and I'm continuing with this k.
The residues from 660K700K are attached. No primes are in that range Last fiddled with by MooooMoo on 20060928 at 06:35
