YAFU - Yet Another Factoring Utility
We are factoring numbers in the range of 70 - 110 digits which needs factoring in the factordb. At the beginning we start with numbers of 89 digits. There are ~ 6700 of them which needs to be factored.

Hi Tom. Thanks for the explanation of the project. Whilst it is of no consequence to me as I crunch any scientific endeavor to help, I am not an academic and do not understand what factoring would do for us in the future or how it might help if we discover something as far as numbers are concerned. Is here a simple explanation?
