Is this a relatively large number?
I'm just 10th grade in high school and just found out about this so forgive my stupidity but is this number it's factoring relatively large: M33691193?

Yes, it is quite large. M33691193 means 2^336911931, which happens to be 10142060 digits long, or 60% larger (digits wise) than the recently discovered prime!

The number your working on is 10142060 digits long if you were to write it out long hand it would be over 2100 pages long.

WOW, THAT'S AWESOME! Maybe I'll get lucky who knows, but it says I gotta wait to May 2004 so I gues we'll find out!
