Default Error 5 causes userid change and error 17 updates for exponents

During database maintenance today (02/04/2006) some computers may have experienced an error 5 (access denied) response that causes Prime95 to auto-generate a new userid. Subsequent exponent updates are reported as error 17 (assigned to another account).

The resolution is to simply re-enter your original userid and password into the Test, User Information... fields in Prime95.

I regret any inconvenience this might have caused. For comment or more information, please feel free to email me at primenet AT mersenne DOT org.
