That's an idea!

I seemed to have started something with the x^y+y^x prime-finding project. Andrey Kulsha found lots of primes and strong pseudoprimes and began the XYYXF project to factor numbers of this type. (100,99).c151 has been one of his most wanted numbers for a long time now.

I'll give it some thought.
