I made a 19 tone irregular temperament using a program named scala. I was careful to keep the intervals small as possible. here it is in cents if you have a similar program.

64.3333, 128.6667, 193, 257.3333, 321.6666, 386, 451.3333, 516.6666, 582,642 ,702 , 764.25, 826.5, 888.75, 951, 1013.25, 1075.5, 1137.75, 1200

To what end? Do you have anything written in it? What are its advantages/special properties?

I had to do something similar to this for an assignment once.  We also needed to write a short piece for the temperament to put it in context.

You need to apply the temperament.  Write a piece, or improvise on a MIDI keyboard with the set temperament.  It is difficult to assign musical traits to it by only looking at numbers and listening to intervals.
Made a Liszt. Need new Handel's for Soler panel & Alkan foil. Will Faure Stein on the way to pick up Mendels' sohn. Josquin get Wolfgangs Schu with Clara. Gone Chopin, I'll be Bach
