Thumbs up Where is M40?

A quick poll, where do you all think that M40 falls?

Guessing above 20.8M or VERY slightly below.

However, I think the current way of keeping the newly discovered number is good enough---there is (as far as I can see) no way of knowing the prime number, less than running double checks of all numbers returned at the time just before it was discovered. (I'm running three of those now, but hey, we have been discussing random early double checking in the data forum.)

That's not necessary. See my comment in the M40 again thread. I also suggest an improvement for next time.

Like Prime95 said. It is somewhere between 5 million and 10 million digits .

I'm not quite sure which post you are referring to. Do you mean that Mersenne primes are listed as unreserved and not getting a phony residue?

But then they would be easier to identify, since then there were only two exponents unreserved, but eight returned during the last hour before the first post of a new prime was made:

Well, I was just going to say that the unreserved was not making any progress.

(Wow, the 10 minutes counts from the first posting, not from the latest change in the posting?!)

Can you add an option to the poll for "between London and Birmingham"?

(Sorry, this joke for Brits only)
