Looks promising! No hardware errors were detected during the run. The computer in question has also reported a dozen or so composite results without hardware errors.

I've emailed Curtis Cooper to send a copy of the last save file. I'll then re-run the last few thousand iterations. If that also reports a prime, then we almost certainly have a winner!

I've also emailed several others looking for big iron to run a verification using mlucas or glucas. I suppose a CUDALucas run would be good too. Anyone with a GTX580 or 590 that would care to give it a go? Batalov?

Now would be a good time to re-read all old threads to understand that asking is futile. ;-)
