I was happily watching the blinkenlichten while the HP-25 emulator was calculating.

So I tried to maximise the duration by using $$2^{33}=8,589,934,592$$ but was slightly disappointed by the result:
Only disk 5?
Whereas I've expected 34.

Turned out the given result was $$8,589,934,605$$ which is off by $$13$$.
So I've entered the correct value manually.

Those of you who wonder how an odd number could lead to disk 5 may notice that all the values are rounded to 10 digits.

So that's a limitation of the program: $$0<n\leqslant10^{9}$$.
