Typo in reported factor?
Bruce reports finding a factor of 6^3911 on the ECMNET webpage.
But unless my software is really screwing up, the factor does not divide. I am guessing that one or more digits are missing?

Yep, it is 7,359.
Cofactor c224 is composite. (It must have divided a number from the list because othewise Paul's form wouldn't accept it. This sudoku puzzle was easy.) Last fiddled with by Batalov on 20110219 at 23:18

small one; seems likely that there are more to find. Too many new inputs over the weekend, when many of the labs are closed. Distracted by exam grading and _three_ new top5000 Proth primes. Plus the wind knocked out our power for two hours here today. Regards, Bruce

A hole in one. Now, this is not a futile factor. :)
Congratulations!

Ooops. If it matters, this ran with k = 20. Sounds like this really used some GMPECM features; and I was more than just lucky with the parameters!
