Happy Birthday GIMPS!!
Apologies to Neil Sedaka...


What happened to
the 10 million race?

We work exponents now
in a billion space!

The most successful
Computing project ever seen

[B]It's GIMPS' birthday - sweet sixteen![/B]

The internet
Was brave and new
And Mr. Woltman had in mind
Just what to do

Try Lucas-Lehmer testing
Numbers of size extreme!

[B]It's GIMPS' birthday - sweet sixteen![/B]

Congratulations everyone on 16 years of crunching! This is an amazing project to be a part of, and it makes us all part of mathematical history, whether we perform one LL test or one thousand! Sixteen years in internet time is 3-1/2 eternities, right? :smile:

Thank you, George, Scott, and all of my fellow crunchers. Long live GIMPS!!!
