Perhaps a misclick, intended to be a reply to the 6+ thread that just posted a factorization rather than starting a new thread?

I think he won a bet... something did or didn't happen in the factoring world by this date.

Maybe it's as simple as celebrating that we made it to 2020.

I take it you were on the "it will be factored" side and he was on the "it won't be factored" side?

Was it a particular number or just a size you were betting on?

I'm guessing it's not a new Mersenne prime given that this was posted in the Factoring forum.

I guess that you and RDS betted that by now (? see below) a "difficult" 1024 bit number would have been factored. RDS saying no, xilman saying yes.


Those 6 extra month may result from the bet being based in years to come, not an exact date.
