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

And there's two more fake residues that I have in my notes somewhere, for the two false alarms in the past year. But these were never officially made public.

Then how do we know that those are the real fake residues?

-Because some of us figured it out, and not just guessing. The evidence was less hidden in the past, and it was pretty obvious when you had the right one, especially if you had some fortunate archived data files.

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.

Both of these fake residues have a "4800" in common. 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.

Yep. Anyone notice the "C80125"?
