Also, when you start (or restart) PRP worker, it will, among other things, print out how much disk space it needs, and how big will the proof file be. I guess if not everyone reads the documentation, they should at least pay attention to the program's GUI.

Default Happy 5th birthday, M49*

Five years ago tomorrow, M49* = M_74,207,281 was discovered by Curtis Cooper. This anniversary is special because January 7, 2016 was a Thursday and tomorrow will be a Thursday. And happy 25th birthday to the GIMPS project as well!

In fairness, the timing of the post is quite good. The first sentence of the press release for the discovery of the 49th known Mersenne prime says

On January 7th at 22:30 UTC, the Great Internet Mersenne Prime Search (GIMPS) celebrated its 20th anniversary with the math discovery of the new largest known prime number, 274,207,281-1, having 22,338,618 digits, on a university computer volunteered by Curtis Cooper for the project.
