Default New Prime Test allows reuse exps (eg GIMPS)?

Perform all calculations mod 2^n, suitable fixed n, (rather than mod p) allowing reuse exp:

omg. Wanless? Hasn't this guy been cranking away in sci.math for YEARS? I thought the 999999.... thing looked familiar.

Man, he's right up there with JSH.

Hi James. Have you prepared your submission about non-Euclidean geometry yet?

Before anyone else spends too much time on this particular proposal, I would ask you to suggest a value for a suitable fixed n. Give us something to work on and we will likely make rather faster progress.

Apparently so - here's a Yahoo Groups message about JW's obsession with Miller-Rabin, which is also now well-documented in a thread on this forum:

http://groups.yahoo.com/group/primen.../message/15340

...and here's a typical crank thread in which the crank winds up talking to himself, and finding that he and himself are in perfect agreement, no less:

Hmmm... I don't think there's much mileage in this one (since any odd number is called prime mod 2^n by this test alone). I probably should have written the program _before_ posting! Anyway thought I'd better let y'all know, just in the unlikely case anyone was still wasting time on it. Maybe the current method of finding Mersenne primes computationally _is_ the fastest... :-)
