If it isn't a bug, it'll be a great incentive for taking assignments currently considered unglamorous.

Maybe the residue is 0000000000000001?

You are making a habit of spotting these things!
How do you do it?

My money is on a bug.

But chance of those 56 bits all 0 is 1/2^56.

Actually this finding was a bit different. Msomething was spotted as a "success" in the Top producers report for first time LLs. I haven´t checked that report for ages now, it´s maybe time to go and have a look ...
This time I was just going to check whether there were some more of Axon´s "accomplishments" in the Recent Cleared report. Instead, amphoria´s accomplishment caught my eye. Hey, it´s rather easy to spot that bunch of 0s in the middle of hex stuff (I don´t wear glasses).
Let´s wait and see.
BTW, is GW on vacation?

Someone with a CUDA-capable GPU could probably test the exponent in a day or so. However, it has already been assigned to someone else, and poaching it could have ethical implications.
