I've given fewer hints than in the past because you readers are so good at sleuthing! However, the 10 million digit question is important to many folks. So......the new Mersenne prime is NOT ten million digits.

Well, thanks for the compliment! Well, my guess isn't a 10 million digit number, so I now have a 25% chance of being correct!

George, is that a trick answer?
Is it bigger than 10m digits?

OK, the new Mersenne prime is not ten million or more digits. The EFF award is still up for grabs.

Thanks George!
My plans for today, revolved around that answer.

Perhaps he means the email that specifies EXACTLY what the new exonent is....oh wait, I forgot it only goes to those of us who have already found a prime

Haven't you learnt anything from the last time? You know the FALSE positive?? Just leave it until the official announcement.

want to know what it is early, then just do what I did, find a Mersenne prime....

George has said that is is bigger than M40.

As for you, Nitro, a friend I'm talking to on IM who peruses the boards says you're "slightly obnoxious" and I have to agree. Quite frankly, I'll do what I want and since George says this one's the real thing and I think I have the right exponent it looks like my time was well-spent.

If it is prime it might be in Newsweek. Last time, the finder of M40 had a quote on the quote page.

To be perfectly honest I don't give a flying f*** what you think about me. It's my name in the record books not yours.

As to your second point, you started this "I can't wait to work it out" BEFORE George made any confirmation or otherwise.

Guess we were just lucky you didn't work out the last "find" and blurt out some premature announcement aren't we.

By the way you can't "do what you want", when you download and use the software you agree to abide by certain conditions. Don't like them, take your time elsewhere, you won't be missed.
