Fourth prime found

Post by Edwin » Wed Dec 11, 2002 9:13 am

From the SOB-site
k = 69109: FOURTH PRIME FOUND!

At 0057 GMT on 7 December 2002, SB's fourth prime discovery was reported to the block server! The prime, 69109•2^1157446+1, has been verified, and it's the largest yet, weighing in at 348,431 digits. This places it as the 17th largest prime ever discovered.

Congratulations to Sean DiMichele (SeanD) of team Anandtech, whose 2.2 GHz P4 machine reported the prime after 3 hours 36 minutes of computation.

Great work, everyone, and remember: the next one could be you!
So 13 more to look for.
One step done, many more to go

How is the EBT team going in the stats?
I've dropped down the SB-search when the program stopped for one entire day, so I decided to run the Mersenne Prime search instead.
Should I return now to the EBT team?

When I moved house a few years ago, connecting my computers was a top priority. Just after my bed.

What's happened to you?

Don't need to answer if typing is too difficult
