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....

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 wellspent.

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

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.
