This was listed in the Factoring forum part of Mersenne.org, but it is for the Oddperfect number project specifically by name in the thread.

Here's an addendum type addition to the news from the official Oddperfect.org website about this news:

News: Road Block Factored!
On September 29th Ryan Propper, a Junior Computer Science Major at Stanford University, factored the last untackled road block below 500 digits. Ryan has been using the Most Wanted ECM Server at oddperfect.no-ip.com:8201 since June. The 246 digit composite σ(19192) factored into P56 x P191.

It is thought that only one more large factorization necessary is necessary to prove any odd perfect number exceeds 500 digits. This number is presently being factored using SNFS. I have set the Most Wanted ECM Server to work on the next known road block, whicb will be necessary to push the threshold above 10511.
