I spoke too soon, the program fell over.
progress.txt c 1 E 60 iteration 0 I 0 Error message: E+1 should be prime. But E+1=61 prime. Until fixed will take Sierpinski 58 Last fiddled with by robert44444uk on 20091003 at 07:48

Done that modification it isn't slower, it is writing the record table to a txt file. Be careful, it won't use this txt file at the start of the program even if there is a recordtable.txt file on the folder. The format of the text file: level n y E as in your paper. And now there is much less screen output of the status (there is at least 5 seconds between consecutive outputs). "Error message: E+1 should be prime. But E+1=61 prime." Corrected, it is a minor bug, doesn't effect your earlier computations. See my page to download the new exe. Last fiddled with by R. Gerbicz on 20091003 at 18:54

The racing table works very well...perfect. The E60 problem is fixed. Please note that there are other E values that could be checked that are not p1, as their profiles are slightly different. What is the highest E that can be checked? It was not possible to go beyond E=255 with Axn1's program. A couple of minor improvements that could be made to the output files: recordtable.txt  add whether it is Sierpinski (S) or Riesel (R) results.txt  (i) add a date and time stamp to the output (ii) add the iteration and I value of discovered candidates. This will help build a statistical model for the possible number of VPS at a given level Regards Robert S

E<sievelimit (default=2^27) should be true. But note that choosing a large E it might cause that there is no payam/vps number up to y=2^60, (this is the limit for y value in the code). Probably for E>1000 it is true. Last fiddled with by R. Gerbicz on 20091004 at 12:56

In 11 days I found 80 new VPS, to add to the 320 already known before Robert's program became available, so that is 411 including Robert's 11 finds.
In 6 weeks I can singlehandedly double the known VPS, which were found over a period of 6 years None of the 80 have > 106/10000 though. The juicy ones are still to come. Last fiddled with by robert44444uk on 20091008 at 11:06

As of yesterday (2 weeks in) I have found 86 new Sierpinski VPS and 105 Riesel VPS. One is 108/10000, there are 3 at 107/10000 and 5 at 106/10000.
I have also reserved Riesel 52 from Iteration 2  just found my first 109/10000 after only 12 hours of searching The very best performer at 10000, with 116 primes, found 6 years ago, looks a tough one to beat, although it is only 7th best Sierpinski performer overall S 2158430601663 66 100/5496 116/10000 153/174566
