Now, back to the main focus of the thread..
Some obscure theory on primes of the form 2^{p}1. What about them? Want to find one? P95 is your friend. Why don't you try 2^{64354649}  1? By the way; What is the status of 2^{64354649}  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 2^{p}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. Code:

Hey, look! P95!
And, an actual p95; 82449289611552559574990925283007152491333479550118068579078519555198400142339056437465979206437. Last fiddled with by 3.14159 on 20101114 at 15:45

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

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.
