Is there a status page to this project or what is the current status?

I think of the Factors Page as the status, but there are other measures, too. The smallest composite, the C149 from M(1575), has had about 2% of the curves for 50 digit factors (B1=43M). The other five composiites under 200 digits have finished 55% of the search for 40 digit factors (B1=3M). The Special Project is about half way through the search for 25 digit factors (B1=50K). The Special Project has found 13 factors at this level. The most recently discovered factor was about an hour ago from the ECM Server, but I won't get around to a proper announcement until tomorrow. The web site is the class project for a class on "Introduction to Web Design." In a few weeks I will make a presentation to the class. I'm planning to make it a pitch to get them involved in the project, and I'm preparing that presentation as a set of web pages. Soon I'll be asking everyone here for comments on the presentation. Is there anything else you'd like to know?

bits
How many bits is the number obtained, after dividing M3326400 with all the prime factors found?

You mean both Linux and Windows versions, don't you?

People using an ECM version different from the one downloadable from the ElevenSmooth site should apply the bug test.

Where can one find all the unfactored numbers left? Can we use GMPECM on these numbers?

There are over eighty other composites that are at present being facrored only by the Special Project. The identity of these numbers can be seen on Special Project Planner Page. The largest of these factors are more efficiently tested with Prime95, and the smaller factors are tested as freebies with the larger ones. So these factors could be tested with GMPECM, but it makes more sense to continue using Prime95 for a while. At the present time the active work is focused on GMPECM for those numbers with sufficient work that any new factor is likely to qualify for the Top Ten Page. We've continued longer than expected on this project because a temporary boost in computing power has enabled us to keep many numbers in the feasible range longer than expected. That temporary boost will disappear around the end of February. When that happens, I expect to return to fuller ECM search and to launch a new phase of the Special Project. William
