Yes. Doing the verification a) with a different program written in a different language, b) with a different hardware, c) by a different person, and d) in a different place, leads to a null probability of a mistake, I think.
Though re-starting prime95 from a saved intermediate file may repeat a mistake.
But the probability to have prime95 saying "prime!" while the number is composite is really, really, really, really, really, ... small, I think.

I haven't heard anything from George yet so I'm still in the dark.

Tony: The 128CPU Itanium2 system is "currently being setup" so I won't have access to it. The best I can do is a 16CPU Alpha system which may or may not be busy (I might be able to get 10CPUs) so you should definitely finish before I could if you get authorization.

The longer it takes, the better, I'd say.

I think George is on vacation this week hence the silence on his part. Oh damn! We have to wait an extra week before verification.

Any volunteers to start the data mining for possible candidates? Unfortunately, it appears that PrimeCruncher isn't active this time...

So ? We have not any fast computer to test the probable new Mersenne ?
Let's call the people at Livermore in California and ask them if we can borrow Blue Gene L for some minutes ... so we can test the new prime
