Since the run time executable that is used is llr for all three of the apps that you have made available, why are we using 3 different apps? Isn't the Sierpinski / Riesel Base app good enough to handle all of the tasks?

The main reason was to get more work done in time. If one base is empty I can replace it with another base to get constantly work. I need to run a long runner and for the others some shorter.

A good long runner would be S40 50K-100K
It has over 500K w/u's. The sieve file is ABCD and has to be converted to ABC.
Let me know if you need help converting it? MyDogBuster
