No, Patrick, you are not. However, nobody built a sieve file for 1M+, and sieving at that exponent size for a dozen k's takes quite a few CPUmonths. A sieve depth of 6080T should get us in the ballpark; 2 or 3 Ghzyears on a 64bit Athlon.
The 6th drive contains kvalues sieved from 600k to 1.4M, so you get your wish for megabits on that one, delayed a few months to test the submegabit candidates. The initial batch of candidates is sieved to 30T, with the sieve continuing for higher exponents. Curtis

As Curtis said, we sieved these numbers only to 1M. When we started the drive in November 2006 (sieving started a few months before) even 1M looked a bit unrealistic to reach. But here we are just several files short of completion!
The 6th Drive featuring the following 12 k's will start very soon: 133, 145, 169, 187, 203, 205, 217, 235, 259, 275, 287, 295 The drive starts from n=600k and goes to n=1.4M. Currently the best way to search for a megabit prime using presieved values on the forum is to run k=105 from n=1005k, files are available here. We also have k=5, 15, and 17 but starting at larger exponents. You can find details in respective threads. Finally, if others agree, we can divide the 6th Drive in two parts, one from n=600k, and the other from n=1M so that people can find megabit primes sooner.

i took the 9991000 file, sorry if that was selfish.

Yes it was, but we'll forgive you if you find a prime! Or, short of that, if you complete the range in less than 10 days.
BTW, Bmaxx completed 984985 and found no primes. He is now taking 992993.

Just to let you all know that I am back to test 973977 (20 % done) but this delay is Kosmaj fault.

9991000 Complete, no primes. I split the range up into 4 w/ newpgen since I have a quad core. Do I need to do anything w/ the four lrresults?
