Very pretty - I would take the top of the CFC line and code as "Mersenne Prime Gap Search" (PGS) given the efforts of this group to get the search to 2^64 a couple of years back.

On a selfish note, I think any colour similar to Dana's (i.e. mine) need to be changed to accentuate. Maybe swap out some red yellows and green to allow current searchers to see their results more clearly.

Another selfish note - on another list - https://primegap-list-project.github...merit-over-10/ where I am noted as cooperating with Dana for the large gaps - in fact for all gaps over 650k I did this work with my own software and approach. The problem can be traced back to the simplicity of the Nicely site that largely listed the submitter, and not the approach.

My records come in four flavours - those less than 1500 were my finds under the PGS collaboration, those over 650k, which were mine alone, and those in between which were largely my running Dana's perl program but also contain quite a lot of records in the 1500 to 5000 range relating to CRT offsets, which was a novel approach I worked on.
