Is it my imagination, or does the bear seem to have problems getting out the "irregular" primes?

You can look at the page source and see that it doesn't use a sieve. It just divided each odd number by all odd numbers <= the square root. If none divide, then it is prime. I assume it fails at 2^31.

We need a Mersenne prime number bear.
Not a likely candidate for the screen saver some newcomers ask for. Even if the unsuccesful numbers were displayed, it would be one every three weeks, at most. (What's the English word for that medical condition?)
