I've been busier than usual the past few days so I haven't been keeping up with the forum here. I'll get the home page updated shortly with the same blurb we had for M46's proof.
And... done. I made note of the curious order that M47 was discovered, highlighting the fact that, when it was found, it was actually the 45th known Mersenne prime.

If I got any of the facts wrong there, bug me about it so I can fix it. I thought it'd be fun to point out the other couple cases where Mersenne primes were discovered out of order and I hope I got the anecdotes right.
