Default Merry Christmas GIMPS, Merry Christmas George, Scott et al!

Hi All,
I think it is now the time to be delighted!

Two Mersenne primes in the year, is it not marvellous!

With the best regards, (and Happy new year to all of you!)

Jean

I saw that somebody posted the exponent before official release ....
So is it prime or not ?
Where is the official release ?

Here in Italy it is 11.00 AM (the same time zone of France) but I think that a lot of people are still sleeping on the other side of Atlantic Ocean.

First, one must have some French fries, French kiss, Chirac's permission, an e-mail to George, a long decision process
As a French, I must disagree : why some French fries and only one French kiss ?
In France, we always give French kissES , that's why it may take a longer time for the announcement !

Best regards!

Of course the exponent is prime (like all other exponents) .
I makes not much sense to LL-test composite Exponents.

Good morning -- sleepyhead awakens!

The verification is complete and we have confirmed the new Mersenne prime. Thanks, Tony! And congratulations to all GIMPS searchers.

I'm off to work on the main web page and press release.
