Thumbs up 8th SoB-prime discovered - 27653

I haven't seeen anyone posting about this in here (sorry if this is a double post), so I just wanted to notify those who are not aware here that Seventeen or Bust has just uncovered the finding of a 2,759,677 digit prime ... 27653*2^9167433+1 is prime

This is then the largest non-mersenne prime and the 5th largest prime overall

Good for them! 8 down, 9 to go. (And the more primes found, the more they can concentrate on the other ones.)
