Hmm, that casts doubt on my M41 guess...

What went wrong in those cases was pretty well aired in this forum. It would be up to George or the victims of the glitches to reveal their identity and the exponents. So far this time, I see no way to choose among the four candidates that satisfy George's hints and the proper reporting hour. I don't see the relevance of the '47' or '74' discussion going on in some messages. If I HAD to guess, I'd choose the lowest one, since I believe the most probable prime is always the lowest exponent if there is no evidence to the contrary. But the differences in this case would be minute.

No such string appears in any of the four M41 candidates, but M21169397 does have two consecutive zeroes. On the other hand, M23393483 has a "123" and most of the residue follows a "letter, letter, letter, number, number, number" pattern.
