The Scylla and Charybdis of any run is in its first and last ~50 iterations.
We may invest some additional bulletproofing in those. But then again, all of the CudaLucas, MLucas and Prime95 independent runs (and if we could get a run of Glucas ? *) could not all be mistaken simultaneously (as well as using different FFT sizes). We will soon know. _______________ * maybe not Glucas, 'cause all source repositories appear to be defunct now, see links from http://www.mersenne.org/primes/?press=M32582657 , http://glucas.sourceforge.net/

As to official announcement, this may take some time. I need to write a press release, Scott needs to approve and gather his list of press contacts. Chris Caldwell needs to have his web site updated. GIMPS main page needs updating. Patience please.

Well, there's a fun research project for you. Try archive.org, perhaps some other caching services, or try contacting Guillermo. His root web site is alive. :) Email him, try to build, and so on...

Glucas
I find some (old) still downloadable Glucas sourcefiles here:

Does Prime95 hide prime discovery from the user?
As a participant who pays close attention daily to the progress of my LL testing, if my machine found a new prime would I immediately know? Or is this information disguised somehow and forwarded to George et al?

You would know. There's even a configuration option to make noise if a prime is found.

I guess when it's finally public knowledge, we can ask the person, end the mystery. I don't actually know the answer.

Hmm... I had someone contact me about what to do if they found a Mersenne prime, and the timing and size are roughly right. What are the odds?
