Just found a nice big one, but it is in the process of being verified.

121*2^1526097-1 459,404 digits long :showoff:

Still, we could use some help..... :help:

Congratulations :w00t:

Although it is over 1.5M bits long, it didn't quite make the top20 primes. It currently puts your 12121search team above our 321search team [URL=http://primes.utm.edu/bios/top20.php?type=project&by=ScoreRank]on points[/URL]

Good luck with hunting your next big prime.

Hi Justinsane congrats on your latest prime!
I have some questions to ask:

1) On your [URL=http://12121.vocabulate.com/]project site[/URL] you say (line 4): "The short term goal of this project is to search for n up to 1,000,000", but when I look in the reservation thing it looks to me as you have already completed n to 1,000,000 (but then again, I'm not a matematician :confused: )

2) What made you choose 121 as k? (just curious)

3) The 12121 and 2721 have a brilliant way of reserving numbers! :bow: ) but wouldn't it be possible for some (evil :furious: ) person to just submit a fake lresults.txt and destroy the whole thing?

Thats it, thanks!

A big semi-mega digit congratulations to 12121search for the prime [URL=http://primes.utm.edu/primes/page.php?id=75527]121*2^1695499-1[/URL] :banana:

It also catapults the team past "15k" on [URL=http://primes.utm.edu/bios/top20.php?type=project&by=ScoreRank]UTM points[/URL] :shock:

This is a very short term goal. Once completed, the members at the time decided that they would like to press on to 2,000,000. I have been been a big slow in updating its "goals"


2) What made you choose 121 as k? (just curious)

Honestly, there is not a very good reason. It is a low palindromic perfect square. I thought it might be interesting. Turns out, it is

You are absolutely correct. However there is a lot more to the reservation system than meets the eye. For example, any webmaster searching any K could feed it a sieve file of any size, and it will automatically be parsed into chunks of any given size, sorted into the reservation system and made available to the public with a click of a button. It is pretty nice when I am limited in my time availability for making new work available. I have offered this to a few other groups running similar searches, but was met with little or no desire to use this approach. And to answer your question, there is a multifold response:

1. There is absolutely nothing to gain by doing this, except for maybe a few laughs.
2. It would take a reasonable amount of time to generate a faken lresults.txt file that looks real enough to even be accepted by this parser. (Doable yes, but worth it?)
3. All submitted results are stored on two different servers and are all subject to double checking and/or verification if (and sometimes if not) flagged as a possible fake.


Thats it, thanks!


You're welcome, and thank you for your interest!

Great work!

Is there any reason why you picked 121? Just curious.

Congrats for a big "12121" prime. Keep up the good work! Good luck with your next find.

Thanks, if they keep coming at the rate that they have been.....we might be on to something here!
