A better idea than RSA170: find a nice Cunningham Tables number and do a team effort on that one. There are LOTS of GNFSsuitable ~170digit numbers around that have a special form, unlike RSA170. Moone is interested in RSA numbers anymore, except RSA768.

Lots of people are interested in doing research on GNFS for eventual use on big numbers, but I think it's debatable whether any input to any factoring algorithm is 'interesting'.

I’ve gotten a new message that there’s an update on somebody’s other RSA post at http://www.mersenneforum.org/showthread.php?t=11603&goto=newpost , so it reminded me of this thread that I wanted to update. Thank you, everybody for giving me help with GGNFS or telling me that it wouldn’t be practical to factor RSA numbers further. I wanted to update you though. Since the last previous post here on April 16th, 2009, three people have now broken my record at http://www.alpertron.com.ar/ECM.HTM and http://www.alpertron.com.ar/ECMREC.HTM . Also since that last previous post on this thread, RSA170, RSA180, and RSA768 have been factored at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RSA_factoring_challenge . Possibly later, I might keep a top 50 factor list and top 50 prime list of what people have discovered with http://www.alpertron.com.ar/ECM.HTM . In the meantime, I’m going to be working on more probable prime projects again at http://www.primenumbers.net/prptop/prptop.php , and projects with NewPGen and PRP.

I factored RSA100
I had forgotten to mention that in 2015 that I had factored RSA100 with the Applet:
https://www.alpertron.com.ar/ECM.HTM It’s #10 at: https://www.alpertron.com.ar/ECMREC.HTM RSA100 defined at: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RSA_numbers#RSA100 RSA100 was the first factored in 1991: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RSA_Factoring_Challenge I have no future plans with RSA numbers & I don’t see this going anywhere else. Thanks for helping.

ECM Factoring Update or RSA Update for 2019
ECM Factoring Update or RSA Update for 2019:
It appears as though RSA240 was factored on December 2 of this year: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RSA_Factoring_Challenge https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RSA_numbers#RSA240 Nobody told me why RSA232 seems to be skipped over. I had forgotten to post since 2016 here that I've discovered factors that are now at https://www.alpertron.com.ar/ECMREC.HTM Don't take yourself too seriously if I forget to repost on this thread again.
