It's OK with me, I've been running Prime95 for some time on my computer, so I'm used to these longlasting computations. One question about the factor4 program. I try to run Prime95 at the same time on my computer, but it gets almost no processortime at all, factor4 takes almost all of it. I have tried to lower priority on it, but it doesn't help. Is there some other way to do this than using the task manager? (other than using 2 computers )

Gribozavr has already reserved that exponent. Would you mind choosing another one? Luigi P.S. Please use the checkout thread to reserve exponents on this project.

Hi, I read the operation billion website and would like to reserve the exponent 3321928171 so that I can factor it to 86 bits. I can have factor5 run at least 12 hours a day automatically. Thank you.

Hey All!
Seems as though the Billion Digit website is down at the moment. I'd love to jump in and start doing some TFing, but don't know where to find unreserved exponents. Also, can the work done with the billion digit candidates be reported to the main mersenne.org site? I know many of the exponent fields on the site won't accept numbers greater than 999,999,999. Thanks all! Happy hunting!

This site is still up:
http://home.earthlink.net/~elevensmooth/Billion.html And the same information is presented here in graphical form: http://2721.hddkillers.com/graph/ There is a checkout and a report results thread in this forum you can use to reserve and return your exponents.

It looks like this has not been touched for a while!
