Wouldn't that suck big time??!!

We're into Monday in a number of countries - but I don't know of any ahead of NZ. Kiribati did wangle the position of being the first country to see the new millenium by adjusting their local time to cover the Line Islands south of Hawaii...

Default Sept6th is Prime !

OK. You already knew it...
My verification has just ended, and Glucas says about Sept6th:
NEW MERSENNE PRIME DISCOVERED !!!!
George should know about the result.
Don't know if Jeff has finished yet or not his own verification.
Think George will clarify the main page of the GIMPS.
OK. Now target is: M47 !

It's still sunday in Europe, but hence a number of newspapers already came up with news about the two primes (of course without knowing their identity), I think it's about TIME to send the official press release.

I could only find one post by Gilchrist about his verification of MSept:

Maybe. This way, Jeff and me both got Silver and Bronze medals !!! And two Gold medals for Tom and Rob !!!
And Platine/Diamonds medals for George, Ernst and Guillermo !!!!!!!!

Sure that George will produce a Press Release where all details about this verification-race will be described.
Jeff started first for Aug23th. He is using a 128x Itanium2 machine while I used 2 different 16x Itanium2 machines. But it is better to be alone on a 16x machine that with many other programs on a 128x machine.
