COMMENTS

The table that I submitted for A195264 (see the second link here) is still actively maintained by me. That includes all unknownoutcome evolutions starting with numbers up to 10000. If you click in that table on the 'unknown' beside the number 20 it will give you the current state of the evolution of the number 20. There was a bottleneck at Alonso20(102) [= A195265(103); we're using offset zero for our evolutions] involving a 62digit factor, cracked by a Mathew in MersenneForum on August 13. Sean A. Irvine subsequently extended that to Alonso20(109). The unfactored composite in Alonso20(110) is 178 digits long. I maintain links to sorted lists of unfactored composites at the bottom of the table. If anyone can factor any of these composites, submit the factorization to factordb.com and I will (eventually) find it; a personal headsup would of course be appreciated.
