Thanks :smile:
I am testing both k=2 and k=4 using PRP v.24.14 currently @ n=315000. 
[URL="http://primes.utm.edu/primes/page.php?id=84401"]Another megaprime this year[/URL].

Yes, it's
24518^262144+1 (1150678 digits) The new largest Generalized Fermat prime, found by Stephen Scott. Currently ranked 13th. Congrats! 
[URL="http://primes.utm.edu/primes/page.php?id=84603"]Looks like we won't defend our current position in terms of score[/URL] :shock:

It's huge, congrats to them!
But it's reported jointly by two projects and they will share credit, so we won't be far behind. BTW, I also wonder what kind of "project" PrimeGrid is? They have reported so far twin candidates, Woodalls, and now Prime Sierpinski. They are also working on 3*2^n1, and I heard they would like to run Proth and some generalized Woodalls. Looks to me like a team, not any particular project...

Each user can choose in his preferences what mix of subprojects he'd like to be assigned work from. :smile: 
I meant "project" on Top5000 rankings. Each project there is supposed to be about a particular subset of all prime types, not primes of all types.

Oh, I see. 
Here goes another [URL="http://primes.utm.edu/bios/code.php?code=L606"]megaprime[/URL] Congratulations!
