As I predicted, some kind of psychic
Petrw1 monitors GIMPS progress carefully so I presume his expectation that all exponents under 50,000,000 will be undergoing testing by Christmas is plausible, and that the chance of M45 being less than exponent 50,000,000 is about 50/50. My estimate of the expected time of arrival of M45 is 34 years. Last fiddled with by davieddy on 20080523 at 12:35

The trouble is that the interval between M40 and M44 was freakishly small. Last fiddled with by davieddy on 20080523 at 14:44

I predict next Mesenne prime will be found in between 55M~59M around Nov 2009

How about creating a search for M45 by polling? Start with a set of
reasonable ranges, we vote, then narrow the range down? Maybe intuition will strike gold ...
