posts. The milestone I would like to monitor is the countdown to the status of exponents below (say) 55M not being unknown. David PS The LL wavefront is struggling to reach 51M. Last fiddled with by davieddy on 20100910 at 17:13

I will also start counting down first time LLs less than 30M. There are currently 59. I will make an updated spreadsheet next time I post.

My enthusiasm for following this would be increased if you could find out why anyone is testing the 6 below 21M or why the 200 or so below 37M are described as first time tests. This is readily available on the primenet summary page. @ UncWilly: this is all there on the milestones page. As I've said before, the interest is to be derived from the rate of change of the countdowns. Since this is more or less exactly the same for M42 to M47, there is a sort of redundancy generated by the freakish number of primes discovered in the last few years. FWIW countdown to proving M42 is M42 was 41,605 on 29th July. David PS I don't think "milestones" were placed by the roadside randomly. Last fiddled with by davieddy on 20100920 at 21:38

LLs less than 30M is increasing somehow so I won't continue recording that. Regression line still says mid 2012.

No, there remain less than that to be tested.
Actually, at the time of writing these lines, there are 35 exponents less than 22M remaining to be DCed. You were counting the assigned ones. And there are no first time LLs remaining under 30M. The ones assigned will be finished (or not...) as DChecks.
