M32, M33, M34, M36, M37 and M38 are all on the oldest20 list, but M35 is not ?????
I think something needs repair. The top5000 list I downloaded on "Sat Jun 9 18:50:25 CDT 2007" shows Code:
73 149797*2^14141371 74 2^13982691 75 192089*2^13956881 Code:
105 149797 * 2^1414137 1 106 127 * 2^1398889  1 107 1564347 * 2^1398269  1 109 192089 * 2^1395688  1 I've sent an email to Chris Caldwell.    Correcting this will push one of the nonMersennes off the oldest20 list. Last fiddled with by cheesehead on 20080807 at 02:12

Oh, cool! I thought the linked search was just an interesting list of old primes. Glad to see it was actually useful as an error check.

Caldwell replied that what I noticed was an unintended side effect of verifications he was performing. "But, as you noticed, if you downloaded while it was verifying, then it did not show on the list. I'll fix that."
However, what I actually reported to Caldwell was that M35 was missing from http://primes.utm.edu/primes/lists/all.pdf. I didn't mention that it was missing from http://primes.utm.edu/primes/search.php?MinAge=2860. I suppose his fix covered that, too. Last fiddled with by cheesehead on 20080808 at 00:11

Perhaps what you're getting is not the 20 oldest primes on the Top 5000 list, but the 20 largest primes older than 2860, or 2865, days, respectively? In that case, a few days from now http://primes.utm.edu/primes/search.php?MinAge=2860 and http://primes.utm.edu/primes/search.php?MinAge=2865 may return identical results.
