http://www.mersenne.org/report_expon...&B1=Get+status Why is the same person doing so many LLs of the same exponent? Is there a special reason which I don't understand? Seems to be a waste of resources? Last fiddled with by aketilander on 20110920 at 13:56

Ah, but remember... Computers do exactly what we tell them to do (most of the time)....

All explanations ask for a human being to go check with "anonymous"....if possible.
