I'd like to see the false P1 assignment expiration entries on unknownstatus exponents gone too. (see https://www.mersenneforum.org/showthread.php?t=23817 for some known cases and a theory about a cause.) Last fiddled with by kriesel on 20181210 at 19:02

Do you mean it looks like "12345678Madpoo1210" or do you have spaces and the slash between MM/DD in there, or... ? EDIT: wait, I tried adding spaces and the slash  I see the exponent you mean, and my hint that it's not a previous discoverer would rule that one out.

Maybe we should encourage George to travel more often.

Congrats! one MP every Christmas, they do look more frequent than expected, that's excellent news.

Or, not Eureka!, but Huh! That's funny... the more usual sound of impending discovery. Or it could be ominous, because if the current conjectures about frequency are close to accurate, we are now even more expectant of a relative drought, and in a much higher more computationintensive range of exponents. I've been expecting for years, for the interval between discoveries to stretch out to 3 to 4 years. (So far I'm enjoying being wrong about that.) See https://www.mersenne.org/primes/
Then again, we're only up to about 2010 on the double checking front.
