M1 thru M22

Not yet triple checked.

I would like others to help check this a few more times.
These small primes, are the most important of all general Mersenne primes.
Just as the smallest prime 2, sieves out half of all natural candidates.

I will release a beta version 1.7 that is stripped down a bit.
Please respond here if interested in helping the effort.
Your name will be imprinted far into the sequence of perfection!

:help:

Maybe a run on Glucas of all of these would take a handfull of days.

[QUOTE=TTn]Not yet triple checked.[/QUOTE]By you, you mean. You think none of the folks who've written LL-test software of their own ever bothered to try it out on these?

clarification

I can't help but clarify this foolishness.

The general Mersenne primes (3,7,31,127,1279,...) between these Mersenne points {1 thru M22}!

Remember all Mersenne primes are general Mersenne primes, but the converse is not true.
If the number of Mersenne primes were finite, then the minimum (k=1), would be excluded from the general Mersenne prime sequence.
Hence making the minimum (k=3), which is absurd.

Yes, please do - your thread-starting post clearly says "M1 through M22," which most reasonable people would assume means the first through 22nd known Mersenne primes. If you are referring to some other (known or presumed) primes, why don't you state clearly and unambiguously which ones you are referring to?

[quote=TTn]I am banning this forum from my company forever.[/quote]

So were you referring to the Mersenne forum in general, or just that particular subforum? Again, most reasonable people would assume the former, but alas it seems not to be so.

Ewmayer,

This forum clearly and reasonably states general Mersenne primes, if anyone was listening to the project leader, and the other threads:
