The section in the Wikipedia article on the Collatz conjecture dealing with computational evidence( appears out of date. The article currently says that the conjecture has been tested for values up to 2^60, which is much smaller than numbers I have seen on recent work units.

In general, I think the Wikipedia article would benefit from a short summary of past and ongoing computational projects related to Collatz. I'm a little surprised this hasn't been done yet.
As a side benefit, since many people interested in the Collatz conjecture will be visiting the Wikipedia article, this could improve recruitment for the BOINC project here, which is never a bad thing.

I would add this information myself, but I actually don't know that much about past and ongoing computational studies of Collatz. Is anyone else willing to do this? (Or at least show me what sources to reference, and I can write it myself.)
