One of the things the GIMPS is good for is distracting those of us with an IQ approximating a midrange HPS bulb's wattage from the foibles of those of us with IQ's approximating ordinary twoelectrode household incandescents' wattage. And the statistic that the lower wattage were produced in vastly greater quantities. Last fiddled with by kriesel on 20181223 at 13:19

And even with the small coverage received (so far, hopefully), we are starting to see some effects.... P.S. Does anyone know what the brief uptick at the end of September was caused by (I'm referring to the bottom graph)? Last fiddled with by chalsall on 20181223 at 16:02 Reason: s/covered/coverage/;

Sorry for my overreaction.The question is really not that stupid. However, I was too fussy to accept another interpretation. It's probably because of the fact that I'm self not the brightest lamp in the hardware store.

http://mathworld.wolfram.com/MersennePrime.html https://primes.utm.edu/mersenne/index.html I'm not sure what the IQ level of "some" people have to do with GIMPS. They can do whatever they find interesting, and those of us who find math and primes and Mersenne Primes interesting can work on this project.

What I think should be cleaned off is the pointless TF or P1 done and listed dated _AFTER_ the primality is discovered or confirmed or announced, on some Mersenne primes. (Along with failed primality tests, as were found in some cases.) Last fiddled with by kriesel on 20181224 at 11:31
