Hey, hey, Tony!
Nice to hear from you again.

Yes, sometime by Friday we will be done. (Even Wednesday with CudaLucas, fingers crossed.)

Still need a CUDALucas run? I can run it here on a GTX 480.
Edit: guess not.

I could be wrong about George's interpretation, but if I am right, this certainly narrows the range.

(Too lazy to sleuth on his own, or else too many papers to grade, but if you figure it out, I would appreciate a PM. I promise to be discrete and not contact SlashDot.)

But that is at best an average property having zilch (or very nearly zilch) to do with the magnitude of any given new prime found.

I will say only that enough data have been leaked in this thread to narrow the exponent to within 1%, without any knowledge of GIMPS server traffic and such. But you have to learn how filter out the obvious noise, and thread sub-discussions which actually take things farther away from the correct direction.

I will explain after the official announcement.

Only when George decides. Probably not tomorrow.

George will have my results tomorrow; I know Jeff will be done with the AVX run @~ the same time (I think he's ahead a little). As for the official release...

For now, I'm home, waiting for last medecine exams, since I had a (TRANSIENT !!) cerebral vascular accident 3 weeks ago. For now, they found no explanation... since my 54 years body is in perfect shape, the body of a sportman they said.

While waiting for news about checking this candidate, you could have a look at my last hobby : photography.
Look at: http://www.skeptic.com/ .
You may appreciate different kinds of photographs, like Paris or ... nice ladies.

Long time, no see! Good to see you here again, Tony! It has certainly been a very long wait for a new prime, and if you have been around lurking on the forum, you know about all of the false positives we were getting for a while...very frustrating!!

I'm guessing you're still working @ Bull. I guess the hardware is really getting more and more impressive with each passing year. Those 16-core Itanium systems are probably way out-of-date by now. GIMPS itself recently went above 120 TFLOPS sustained.

And how about Curtis Cooper? Three Mersenne primes! He has certainly put himself and his university in the annals of history.
