Aliquot sequence 46758

I have gotten back to pursuing the fate of aliquot sequence 46758. On April 7, I found the 53-digit factor of term #3237, and early this morning, the 44-digit factor of term #3238. Terms 3239 (this used to be my Beer Store employee number) to 3249 proved relatively easy to factorize, so now I am working on the 113-digit composite of term #3250.

iMac interruptus

There was a power interruption this morning. This is the first time that my wife's iMac has rebooted since I started it running back in January. I make that to be 100 days.
