It made my day to hear the short discussion below on my Tuesday evening commute.
You can download the January 9th 2018 show here: The World Show Archives (streaming the episode didn't work so well, but downloading the full episode as mp3 worked fine) The discussion of M50 begins at about 10:00 and ends by 13:45.

I have noticed some nice upward trends on the graphs page:
https://www.mersenne.org/primenet/graphs.php A big jump in DC's. Hopefully those quick results will hook the newbies. Maybe we can clear/prove M(42643801) (M46) by the end of Feb, 43M (along with M 47) by the end of April , and 44M by the end of July. And maybe the first time LL's will clear 80 by August?

But If I am not wrong, RSA currently uses primes much smaller than GIMPS prime? Last fiddled with by pacionet on 20180114 at 09:34

The trick of RSA is to use two primes that can not be factored easily. Using one (or two) of the 50 known Mersenne primes would make this task of factoring too easy.

It's easy enough, though tedious, to check. I may get a round tuit one day.

Now definitely time to rummage around at the back of sofa to see if I can find a round tuit. Last fiddled with by xilman on 20180114 at 16:57
