The next time we discover a Mersenne prime, George should mention in the press release that there is no largest prime number.

Hey!

I'm still here. Just seeing how are the mprime tasks in my computers I found the news about the discovery of the new prime!!!. Late but happy. I saved a lot of stress...

Congratulations all!!! .

This time Glucas do not performed the Double Check. My fault. Too many years without an update.

Again congratulations, specially to George, Ernst and the happy finder.

Best regards,

Guillermo

Hi Ernst, nice to see you.

This last years I've been focusing in my work as Meteorologist. And in my spare time I've developed a Meteorological web portal (www.ogimet.com).

I've been certainly away from LL-test software development. May be I have to return. Anyway I NEVER exit from GIMPS project. just now I'm the 86 th top procducer list

OTOH, I am very well at 54.

Let me repeat, I'm very very happy with the discovery of this new prime. This is a good reward for all the work done all these dry years.

George, I am curious where the 360,000 computers figure came from in your press release. Is this your estimate of the total number of computers that have contributed since the beginning of GIMPS in 1996? Truly a mind-boggling figure!

Actually, this seems like an underestimate by a factor of 1/2. The "Today's Numbers" leaderboard on the GIMPS home page, at this very moment, shows that we have
Code:
Teams 587
Users 101807
CPUs 737132
TFLOP/s 131.307
GHz-Days 65653.429
So there are actually closer to 740,000 CPUs crunching for GIMPS. In theory, anyway (I would guess that only a small number of them are regularly submitting results; others might be decommissioned or lost to GIMPS communication).

This last one has been the most accurate I have read... and they most likelly read the forum, since they have precision on which computer found it.
