Default Wikipedia article of Prime95

Unfortunately, this is no longer the case (maybe it has been shortened another time before that, I did not look):

Also, the version history got removed for no valid reason other than brevity.

We can use https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php...ldid=897876798 to access a previous revision of the wikipedia page. (The revision history looks to me like the big cutdown eliminating large quantities of data was in May 2019.)
And at some point I'll add a version history post to the prime95 reference thread.

I brought up this issue a while ago: https://mersenneforum.org/showthread.php?t=24524

TL;DR: Wikipedia is not a how-to guide and should not be treated as such.

Wooops, should have looked a bit more deeply in the forum.

Nonetheless, can someone remove the link on the download page?
