If it is a Mersenne prime and its exponent is less than 41922022 (it's probability is very high).
Then it has been beaten a record that now there is an f number for that between
2^f and 2^(2*f) there are at least 5 Mersenne primes! This range is crowded by Mersenne primes.

Assuming my prediction is correct (and I'm quite certain it is), nope, sorry.

Ok, George sent out an email to the listserve at 18:45 UT. The 19:00 Primenet report listed 1 prime, unverified. My question is, can anyone verify whether the 18:00 Primenet report listed this prime? If not, we can pretty much narrow down the time of submission. I count 9 doublechecks between 18:00 and 18:45, 4 first-time checks below 10 million digits, and 1 first-time check above 10 million digits. A doublecheck seems less likely, but certainly not impossible.

44th Known Mersenne Prime Probably Found!!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

On September 4, 2006, a computer reported finding the 44th known Mersenne prime. Verification will begin shortly, probably taking a week or so to complete. If it is verified, this will be GIMPS' tenth prime!

The 18:00 UTC report does list it, but the 17:00 report does not. (The archive at http://tuatara.sdsu.edu/primenet/ is a wonderful resource. Thank you, delta_t!) The cleared file for 18:00 has 14 new exponents, four with 10 million digits, four in double-check territory, and six in between.

This is consistent with my prediction.

This won't work when everybody keeps posting into the M43 thread.


P.S.: Has www.mersenne.org been slashdotted? It's down since a few hours...

P.P.S: M44 is here. (not a spoiler, just a stellar cluster)

That's what I suspected. www.mersenne.org and www.mersenne.org/primenet are still both down, but I see no mention of GIMPS on the Slashdot front page.
