HAH! LOL

We got 'picked off' too! But no big deal here. We have LOTS of k's that everyone is testing!

It's strange because that's the first top-5000 prime for Oita in over a year. k=300-1001 is his favorite range. He may have seen our effort and got motivated to start searching again.

I wonder if he's really using Proth to prove them? Also, I wonder if he's using any sieving software ahead of time? Slow, slow!
