it might be fun searching for a prime that would have 1m digits in base3 then base4 and so on

Congrats, mcduck!
If you decide to look for larger primes, we have wellsieved files for 5, 15, and 17 though the 3rd drive is also somewhere near/above 1.5mbits. Curtis

For the time beeing I have decided to stay on the 6th drive. I expect to get some new hardware (intel skulltrail 8 core system) in january and will put that one to use searching for larger primes (3rd and 17). Also, a huge thanks to those who sieved the 6th drive! Last fiddled with by mcduck on 20081129 at 10:29
