That is good to hear. I did not mean "made public" as in a press release, but that it leaked out to mathworld and such sites. I'm glad I was mistaken.

Any comments on this exp. Is it a false positive?

More nostalgia while we wait. Here people in 2002/2003 are talking big about how fast their computers are now on the 16M20M exponents compared to GIMPS beginning in 19961998:
http://www.mersenneforum.org/showthread.php?t=188 http://www.mersenneforum.org/showthread.php?t=1556 I wish we could go back and tell them, that now we can double check a new 7xM prime in 3336 hours on a Xeon, or ~56 hours on a graphics card!!! and we can factor a ~50M exponent to 72 bits in like 40 mins on a graphics card as well! Here is a major milestone, all exponents under 79.3M trial factored to 57 bit!!!: http://www.mersenneforum.org/showthread.php?t=336 Now think that people in 1015 years might be reading this post (right now ;) ) and laughing at me bragging about these speeds. Now they can test a 150M exponent in 12 hours on their phones!!

While you are waiting, as a reward to GIMPS' most dedicated users, a hint:
The second digit is a 4
