Yes. So, to recap:
  • If you have actually found a new EVEN perfect number, you've also found a new Mersenne prime, and will become famous (and possibly win money).
  • If you have found an ODD perfect number, you have solved (by example) a well-known unsolved problem in mathematics, and will also become famous.

So... We're all waiting with bated breath to hear about this new perfect number.
