Bring it on!

I want it noted that Prime Search has 53 top-5000 primes (now 54) at the beginning of this project and is in 9th place. We should be able to fairly quickly move up into 6th place, which is the old 15k project that has 82 primes.

Edit: It's kind of interesting that our first two primes were for k=745 and k=747.
