It's probably safe for you to say that I won't find that specific exponent because the chance is more likely a 1/1,000,000 fraction. In addition, 15 minutes of the temporary international fame and \$3,000 is only like being invited by a celebrity to the live stage for a short period time of the show, the audience probably won't remember or care about the lucky person after a month.

Unless someone can come up with a formula to allocate every unknown Mersenne Prime, but that won't happen until the exponent size reaches at least 10^28 which I don't believe it's possible in this decimal based reality. The reason: If World War III really happens in the future, the human kinds may have to start over all again. My prediction would be Dec 2036 between USA and Russia, I'll wait and see if it turns out to be true or close in the dates given all the news of all sorts of scenarios happening.

I believe it's more important for someone to be able to find that hidden Mersenne Prime in the M1**,***,*** format before the time runs out than that person has to me or you.

Even after others have repeatedly explained to you how GIMPS and the PrimeNet server works, you still don't get it. Also, your fascination with an alternate base to do numerology in is another reason that someone might not trust you with money.

If I have to spend money of another individual, then that person has the says about what will be the best. My father believes I should get the next generation of PC which will likely to be structured in RDNA3 and Zen 4 and they are speculated for the release dates in 2022.

Another reason is that will I still be running PRPs by summer 2022? Time will give the answer on whether my father thinks the spending will be worth it or not.

All of my finished PRPs have been recorded and dated on Mersenne.org, so print them down for a later review won't be hard.
