I dont think there is a need for a poll, just because of impatience.
You hit the nail right on the head George, it's a perk that makes sense since it's unlikely to be composite. PS My avatar is bigger than your avatar! nah naah...

Yes, because of the monopoly.
If I had as many members working for as long as the GIMPS project it may be a different story. You are just pure hype ewmayer! I was just kidding then you make a dumb comment like that.... whatever

OK, back to the new prime...
So if it does turn out to be a new prime after the doublecheck, how long will it take to get an article written?? Unlike trif, my wife had our daughter 30 days early, so I haven't had to deal with such suspense before. ;)

Or did you mean a formal journal article? There won't be one of those until a 10M digit prime is discovered, at which point the rules of the EFF prize will require a formal article to be published in a peerreviewed journal.
