193-digit GNFS coming atcha!
After five GPU-weeks of polynomial selection and a thousand CPU-hours of trial sieving, I've queued up a 193-digit GNFS from the aliquot-sequences project.

For this one I choose parameters to run through c5=1..10^7 in five GPU-weeks, which came out as stage-1 norm of 1e28 and stage-2 of 1e26. The best polynomial came from the first block, with c5=286440. Average yield (over Q=5e7*N .. 5e7*N+1e4 for N=1..8) is just slightly under 1, so I'm sieving 50M..500M to get a good number of relations.

There will be a 190-digit coming in about another three weeks when the polynomial selection's finished.

The Need For Speed II Challenge
The (N)eed (F)or (S)peed II Challenge issued by SETI.USA team and will start from 2015-03-15 00:00 UTC to 2015-03-20 00:00 UTC . All teams are invited to join the challenge.

Stats can be followed here: http://boincstats.com/en/stats/challenge/team/chat/652
Don't forget that team leader should be register at boincstats so that the team can be added to the challenge.

We hope to see all teams gathered to crunch some NFS@Home wu's and to increase their badge status.

Best of luck!
