Default Mersenne Prime Found? No.

I see on the Top LL list, nr 589 Tichy, has 1 success. I guess a few days of excitement is waiting for us.

Tichy is up 53 positions in the last week at 3663 GHz-Days where the position 53 below them has 3363 GHz-Days which suggests roughly 300 GHz-Days in the last week - entirely possible if a couple of big results like a first LL or two are reported in short succession.

Also up 214 positions in the last month. The position 214 below has 2968 GHz-Days which would amount to 695 GHz-Days in the last month.

While the "weekly" credits would suggest a higher "monthly" credit rate, the kind of burst that first-time LL's can do would explain that. I see nothing suspicious at the moment.

Fingers crossed!

Isn't the issue here the fact that this user is showing an LL "success"? I find that considerably more exciting than any discussion about the user's credit and position in the table.

Nope, this is a false indication. Long story short - it started with a manual submission of a last result line from cudalucas console output (composite of course) instead of the line from the results.txt, and surprisingly it got accepted by the parser. Subsequently, I submitted the line from results.txt with the same exponent, but instead of it replacing the previous one it was counted as a DC. So I mailed George about the situation, and... in the end something went wrong with the database.
Anyway, there's nothign to get excited. Composite numbers - usual stuf;)

Correct, my mistake. I manually updated the stats table to change the stats type from DC to LL. Unfortunately, I did not change the successes column from 1 to 0. It has been repaired now.
