Step 1: Get an account for the following forum:
Step 2: In the above forum reserve a small range to start with. The last range I reserved was 14013000 14017000. That may take me about 3 weeks to complete on a Q6400 running at 3.0 Gig.
Step 3: The following link has a "how to list". Ignore the part about how to create a worktodo.ini file for PRIME95. For getting the worktodo.ini file go to the 2nd entry in the thread http://www.free-dc.org/forum/showthread.php?t=3239 . You will see some worktodo.ini zip files. Pick the one that has your range. Edit this file to only include your range to work on. An example of a portion of my worktodo.ini is:
Pminus1=33661,2,14013000,1,120000,1700000A couple of things in the instruction in the above link is to:
Move the worktodo.ini to folder where PRIME95 is.
Add the following line to the prime.ini file.Step 4: After you start PRIME95 go to its options for the CPU. Set the amount of memory to use. I have mine at 600 meg. When I 1st ran this I was using the default of 8 meg and when my PRIME95 got up to doing Stage 2 it said it did not have enough memory.
Step 5: Factors that are found get submited to: http://www.seventeenorbust.com/sieve/ . Before summiting a factor you have to edit it to be in the following format:
1232968284089849 | 258317*2^17969351+1Step 6: When range is comple go to thread where reserved range and say it is complete.
Step 7: Here is a link to the stats page http://www.henleyclan.co.uk/sobsieve/alltime/scores.htm . Here is a link to my stats http://www.henleyclan.co.uk/sobsieve...e/ui/13090.htm . In it there is a line like:
Factors next to enter (main) 'active window' (@n=13842150)The number 13842150 will be increasing as time goes on and is the number where our P-1 factoring should be kept ahead of. The one factor that I have found with P-1 factoring in my stats is:
2126.847T 55459 14001286 In about a few weeks the active window will be up to 14001286 and the points for my factor will be increased.
