What do you mean by "resieving" ? Sieving again against the same possible factors? Why?? I'm not aware that any publicly availabe siever (NewPGen, ksieve) is missing composites. If you found otherwise please provide examples.

 This range spans approximately 101.000 tests. ... So hopefully with sieving this range to 1 T or more?? I'll get this range to about 50.000 (or less) potential candidates.
I don't know how deep have you sieved those 101,000 candidates but even if you sieved only to 1 bn you will soon realize that a reduction to 50,000 is impossible...

Another possibility is to stop tests early. Indeed, there is nothing special about this k. No need to marry the first love

LOL
With resieve I mean: I have put 2 ranges together, to be absolute sure.
I almost restart the sieve from scratch.

Other point, per day I am eliminating approx 1900 factors.
I'll keep this up until the find a factor rate will drop
I am currently dividing the workload between 2 machines.

The last point: I know that there are other K's to be searched but I really want to find some big primes.

Ps. down to 98000+ tests.
3000 factors eliminated.

 2005-02-17, 19:04 #16 lsoule     Nov 2004 California 110101010002 Posts Sieving seems to be much more effective on my k=231. Sieving the range n=400k-1M only up to 137B leaves just 49,000 tests.

 2005-02-18, 00:48 #18 lsoule     Nov 2004 California 32508 Posts For k=231, it looks like 629k/s on a P4 2.2GHz
