Want to find one? P95 is your friend. Why don't you try 264354649 - 1? By the way; What is the status of 264354649 - 1? (A number of about 19.37 million digits.) If it's uncharted territory, perhaps sm88 can pursue actually looking for one, as opposed to the usual business of seeing patterns where none exist, and babbling nonsense no one understands. Try these values for p, for 2p-1, if that one is composite. These are all probably uncharted territory anyway, and I'm a tad too lazy to go looking around for each exponent's status, although I'm sure that at least one has already been meddled with at least once.

get me the worlds fastest computer and I'll care if i can't get pari to print the biggest prime known in under 30 minutes then I'm not worth it to help anyone find one. so unless I retest and get faster than I did before by 25% I'm not worth it to be searching for them. apparently that was checking if it was prime because it took 31 ms to calculate this time.

Hey, look! P95!

And, an actual p95;

Prime95 is (Mersenne prime)-testing software. Pi is apparently suggesting that, rather than think about the problem, you apply some cycles to it.

I have before and it would take me over 50 days to test one exponent pointless to me.

that and it teaches me nothing about them.

I don't see why 50 days/test makes it bad. But I agree that it doesn't teach you anything.

No one's even made it clear what the supposed "problem" is, besides looking for some Mersenne number.

It's really simple; P95 is your friend.
