The other factor, the second known of F42 is credited to Roman Maznichenko, and Keller credits Durman for the software, but Luigi says over at http://www.fermatsearch.org/news.html that it was discovered using Mark Rodenkirch's program GMP-Factor. Congratulations to everyone involved!
Cool! AFAIK this is the first Fermat factor found with my software.

BTW Luigi, it is GMP-Fermat, not GMP-Factor. Would you mind fixing it?
