I vote that it's the real M41 but not discovered by Mike because none of the remaining candidates were submitted by people named Mike (based on hrf5.txt).

If we all change our names to Mike, will that cause us to find 2 new primes a month?

Reading this post carefully, and it seems that Mike, shall be a co-discoverer.

I think that George and PrimeMonster are running off to file papers to officially change their names to Mike.
