Do you think we might have similar luck like RPS or 15K with some of these high weight or low weight sequences and possibly find a 10M prime?

What do you think? If you or any one else is interested please let me know.


Presently, I am more interested in trying to prove one or more of these four mathematical conjectures, than to find large primes (although it may be a subproduct).
Moreover, I hope we will not need to find a 10M prime before proving at least one of them!
So, perhaps it would be better to restrict this project to base 4 for now, and not to dissipate our efforts too much...
But, indeed there is place for other similar projects!
