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!

It looks like we just got picked off again, this time by the infamous Benson:

Oh well, as before, it doesn't really make that much of a difference for NPLB--that's the advantage of searching so many k's at one time!
