A 33M exponent would take about a month using Prime95 on the fastest P4. I don't know how fast "big UNIX iron" running Glucas could do it. Does this request for a month for a verification point to a 33M exponent, or rule it out?

One of the 33M candidates alluded to in my previous post had been running for over a year. If that's the one, it proves the value of persistence!
