Thanks for this. So the actual yield when not using the d 1 flag is very high for the quartic but then we would likely have many WUs return partial or no results. Unless Greg has a later version of ggnfs 16 which deals with the matter cleanly. Or something else entirely. [/my pointless speculation]

Using composite specialq will also lead to a high duplication rate. It's a useful way to squeeze out a few more relations when yield is low due to suboptimal parameters (eg artificially low lpb and lims on big NFS@Home jobs) but should probably be avoided if possible.

I used d 1 because I believe that is how the fsmall siever runs. I don't think you have a worry about the failed workunits, but Greg should comment before we submit the job.

The NFS@Home binaries use only prime specialq.

With all of the discussion about this difficult quartic and how best to sieve it, there's something I'm missing: why aren't we using the obvious sextic, which has a very reasonable difficulty of 280, instead?

QUEUED AS C202_3408_1693
I was cleaning out the attic and found AS 3408:i1693 with a record setting escore poly. It has been sitting on a shelf for almost a year. I'll place it here for enqueing at some point after the f_small siever catches up. Code:

What is the sextic? A S280 is likely far less difficult than a S261 quartic but it likely still belongs on the f_small siever.
