This is the slowest form of trial factoring available. You have exhibited zero knowledge of the structure of mersenne factors.

You've never seen "2kp+1"? You could start there.

EDIT: Wait, there are likely even slower trial factoring methods available- I forget how weird some of the inventions are around here....
