Is this a relatively large number?
I'm just 10th grade in high school and just found out about this so forgive my stupidity but is this number it's factoring relatively large: M33691193?

Yes, it is quite large. M33691193 means 2^33691193-1, which happens to be 10142060 digits long, or 60% larger (digits wise) than the recently discovered prime!

:showoff: The number your working on is 10142060 digits long if you were to write it out long hand it would be over 2100 pages long.:showoff:

WOW, THAT'S AWESOME! Maybe I'll get lucky who knows, but it says I gotta wait to May 2004 so I gues we'll find out!
