It will be years (12.25 or so) before DC catches up to the area that has the PRP's with certs.

This is based upon adding up all of the values in the Status LL/PRP column up to the 109M level and dividing it by the DC rate from July capture of http://hoegge.dk/mersenne/GIMPSstats.html at archive.org (DC's completed in the last 365) doing the maths.

No Prime has been found in the computer era by DC.
There may have been in the pencil and paper era.
