Someone has figured out each of the 3 previous Mersenne primes. Its been hard to hide its identity with all that data embedded in the Primenet reports.

Heh, you just need to have Primenet put a fake report in for the reported prime. It's easy to run a "okay, which one was there yesterday, and isn't today" comparison.

Scott or Brad implemented that after the last one.

Ah, so maybe what I have isn't the new prime. I have a script that takes all exponents in the nofactor database that are in the Primenet LL ranges, eliminates those in hrf3, lucas_v, the Primenet assigned report and the Primenet completed report, and reports what's left. I have a list of those that I ran a couple of days ago. I ran it again today, and there was only one new exponent on that list, so I figured that must be it. But if a fake entry is put in the completed report for the new prime, then there must be some other explanation for it.

Nevertheless, I'll try again. ;)

So George, aren't you glad you didn't change the banner on the GIMPS web-page? ("Finding the 5 Largest Known Primes")

From the GIMPS Status Page (milestones):
Quote:
June 1, 2003: 40th Mersenne prime is reported!
June 1, 1999: Prime M(6972593) is discovered!
Looks like the 1st of June is GIMPS lucky day... :D

Ernst Mayer (Mlucas) has started his run. I've asked for his estimated completion date. No answer yet.

Gbvalor (Glucas) only has a mid-range Athlon machine. It would have taken him a month. For M#39 he had access to a multi-CPU Itanium system.

Ernst will complete his official test on June 20 or 21. My unofficial test will complete on the 11th. We will be comparing residues every 1,000,000 iterations.
