Default The 2012 countdown

I'm getting a strong feeling that M1009 is an SNFS number (and would be quite a difficult SNFS number, a hundred CPU-years with awkwardly large per-CPU memory requirements); so how about doing things which are more likely to be tractable?

There are three 2^p-1 with p<1000 for which not all factors are known: 929, 947 and 991. They're all SNFS jobs, they're not especially exciting SNFS jobs but they are in the tractable range. M929 is Wagstaff's current most-wanted. How about we try as a forum to get all three done by the end of 2012?

Will we solicit a sieve grid or will this be a forum only contribution?
