Default Top-5000 cutoff is >1 million bits, starting today (now 1.29M))

Sure thing. I emailed C.C. (and added a comment to the prime, too).

I put the asterisk in my morning message, but forgot to post the footnote. It is this:
*Note that the Top-5000 cutoff plane will pass exactly 1,000,000 bits today or tomorrow. For the record, right now it is still at 999,400 bits' size, but the 1,290,000-bits abominable primes keep on pouring in. Mark my words Next state of the Top5000 database will be that all primes from position ~1,500 to 5,000 will be ~1,290,000 bits.
