Thank you. I had some wifi issues yesterday that interrupted the communication effort with my Macmini farm. In particular, one machine would not let me in over the network. In the past I have solved this by directly connecting (USBC or crossover ethernet) an obstinate mini to my main computer but this time that did not work. As all of my minis are monitored via screen sharing, I ended up having to haul my living room TV to the mini (I did not want to do the reverse because I would have to unplug it and that would cease its current calculations). Bottom line: after I rebooted the mini's wifi I forgot to plug the ethernet cable back into my main machine (which hosts chesswanks).
Interval #18 has roughly twice as many terms (all of them larger) than did #17 (which took about six weeks to finish @ 30 cores). I'm currently idling (sieving and working on the largestLeylandprime hunt) those minis that are not engaged in doing intervals #23 and #24. That way when I do #18 I will use all of my minis for the task and (hopefully) keep the compute time down.

I have examined all Leyland numbers in the gap between L(49878,755) <143547> and L(144999,10) <145000> and found 20 new primes.

I started interval #18 yesterday. It may be another three days before I can devote all of my cores to the task, as a couple of them are still finishing up previous assignments. I have a very provisional completion date of March 10.

It looks like I overestimated this by a week or so. In fact, a couple of my processors have already finished their assigned ranges and I have wasted no time getting them started on interval #19.
