Single mom working from home discovered this one weird trick to discover the next BIG prime. GIMPSters hate her!

LOL. The websites I run for my real job are ad supported and we see those types of things *all the time*. Drives me nuts because they're so silly... it's kind of a running joke with our devs.

With that said, I do want to publicly congratulate Dubslow for being the first (and only, so far) person to figure out the new prime.

He used the method I figured might lead someone to it... the "one weird trick".

Something like he found out that the faked residue was the same this time as the last time? ... just joking of course ... Dubslow has always been very bright and persistant!

I personally think it's M75899347. The exponent is reasonably close to Dubslow's predicted value and is somehow not available for double-checking despite being "unverified."

M75899347 is not available for DC since it is assigned for TF to "GPU Factoring".

There's several ways of determining the exponent that
no one has mentioned: (1) drop it off the roof and time its
fall till it crashes (2) offer it to the owner if they'll tell you
the right value (3) start up my calculator at 61000001 and
wait a VERY long time....

Oh wait that was a barometer and a height... bad joke.

I'm on pins and needles... is the announcement expected today?
