Extra congratulations for everyone who stuck with the project even through the dry patch. It's only by sticking with things that you complete them.

What a monster. What a way to end the year!

Thanks to you all for your congratulations. I was just a lucky member of a great prime-hunting team.

The 321 team has jumped a few places to posistion 7.

I hope we are lucky and find the next 321 prime soon.

Great news! A new prime. This one has 944,108 digits. The lucky finder is yours truly. Without much long and sustained help from valuable 321 contributors this would be still out there unknown. So thanks from me to them, to you. It was about where it should have been. I guessed 2.9 million bits and Vincent Diep had guessed 3.08.

3*2^3136255-1 is prime! Time : 20968.720 sec. (2.6GHz Pentium D)
3*2^3136255-1 is prime! Time : 15706.551 sec. (3.4Ghz Pentium 4)

Submitted to top5000 : in at 12th largest known prime to date.
