Hitting 100M digits on the head
Finding a Mersenne prime with 100M digits takes
>1000 times as much computing as our 10M digit primes.

2^10 is a lot to ask even if Moore's Law continues to hold.

This was intended to be a comment on the
"When will the first 100M digit prime be discovered" poll.

I think 2015 is fanciful.

All times are UTC. The time now is 17:26.
