k=14549535 is complete for n=300K500K, 5 primes were found shown below, the k is released. Happy is still working on a doublecheck for n=125K300K.

The aforementioned doublecheck of k=14549535 for n=125k300k is complete. In addition to the known primes, the following new primes were found:

k=8847:
Doublecheck complete to n=500K. No problems found. Hole filled for n=500K700K. In addition to confirming the 3 previously found primes, one additional prime was found: 8847*2^5142981 Results attached.

k=32767:
This one is currently reserved by Diep for n=5M30M. Since it is so low weight I thought it would be interesting to see if there were any more primes up to n=1M. Doublecheck complete to n=50K. 4 previously found primes confirmed. No problems found. Firsttime check complete for n=50K1M. No primes found. This is a very lowweight k! :) Results attached.

k=10005 has a large prime gap so I doublechecked it for n=01.25M.
34 primes confirmed; no problems found. Results attached. Last fiddled with by gd_barnes on 20210519 at 19:15

I've completed the remaining RPS 9th and 10th Drive k's with missing ranges from n=350k to 375k. 21 primes were found, which are attached. Of the laptops mentioned in my last post on this set of k's, the Kubuntu Focus has been dedicated to GIMPS and is not working on this project, but the older laptop is actively working on this. The expected finish date is currently October, though I may dedicate some additional cycles to it once it gets closer to the finish line.

Back about 1314 years ago Beyond (SB2) did a lot of searching on many lowweight k's. Although he gave details about what he was working on his details were frequently incomplete and he did not complete a lot of what he was sieving. One of the main issues is that we never knew where he started his searches. Sometimes they started at n=1, other times at n=300K, many times we never knew. I found these 4 main status posts of his:
post link / date https://www.mersenneforum.org/showpost.php?p=100670 20070313 https://www.mersenneforum.org/showpost.php?p=101240 20070318 https://www.mersenneforum.org/showpost.php?p=110378 20070714 https://www.mersenneforum.org/showpost.php?p=153292 20081214 I took all of the k's found in those posts and removed some k's that were already checked by others since then. This left 98 k's all of which are shown below. All 98 k's have been doublechecked by me for n=1 to 1M. 5 missing primes were found for ranges that he said were done and 13 new primes were found for ranges that he sieved but never searched or failed to report. Missing primes: 9613*2^7349071 124679*2^121 239857*2^1619011 334147*2^1036691 36231101*2^344821 New primes: 273613*2^3974071 313979*2^2431841 412843*2^1079431 412843*2^1429831 412843*2^3772231 434729*2^9414081 451049*2^2819841 464909*2^1366201 469933*2^3306671 473279*2^1038401 700477*2^4920611 783073*2^4026351 1034503*2^1742831 All k's searched with all primes listed below.

The (near)Woodall k's listed in https://www.mersenneforum.org/showpo...&postcount=363 have been completed to n=500k. The following primes were found:
I want to reiterate my reservation of k=454483, which will resume work from this point.

I have completed the remaining RPS 9th and 10th Drive k's with missing ranges from n=375k to 400k, completing the missing ranges. 24 primes were found, which are attached. I got a huge boost from my originally projected October completion date when my new laptop took over from my old one (which had an HDD failure). I am releasing all k's associated with the RPS 9th and 10th Drives.
