I have a couple that look good, one especially so also. It's residue is remarkably similar to previous known false residues and, checking LUCAS_V.txt, it appears in a handful of exponents there, and in only one other exponent in cleared.txt. EDIT: The residue also has two inverted 47s in it, which makes me even more optimistic. Last fiddled with by PrimeCruncher on 20040515 at 23:51

I'm not 100% sure I got the right one, of course. I think I see the one that looks good to you. Mine happens a bit later. Last fiddled with by flava on 20040516 at 00:05

Thank you all for making your predictions encrypted. It adds to the fun and anticipation if we don't prematurely blurt out the new prime.
BTW, it is a new prime. The user sent in his save file. I reran the final 15,000 iterations and prime95 rediscovered the prime. There is no known method for creating a bogus save file that falsely rediscovers the prime. Finally, does anyone have some big UNIX iron to run an official verification on for a month? Guillermo Ballester only has an Athlon machine to run Glucas on. I haven't heard from Ernst Mayer yet.

In the hour before the 'unverified' notice first appeared, there were 11 exponents checked in that satisfied 'new record', i.e., larger than 20996011. Six of these are from participants ranking in the top 1000. Two of these are 33M exponents.
I don't see how to narrow it down any further.

One of the 33M candidates alluded to in my previous post had been running for over a year. If that's the one, it proves the value of persistence!

EDIT: Never mind, I figured it out based on my chart. My guess is one of the six! Last fiddled with by PrimeCruncher on 20040516 at 12:39
