Default Downloading and printing Mersenne Primes

Is there a web site where I can download all the Mersenne primes and print them with a maximum of printing options? I would like to create a book of all known Mersenne primes that can be updated when a new one is found. I would like the flexibility to use any size paper and font when creating this book.

btw, with times new roman at 12 pt, I fit around 3300 characters on a standard 8.5" x 11" page, so it'll take over 2700 pages just to print M43, and that file (43.txt) is 4.2 MB

For a much smaller download, use the mprint program (search the forums, I know there are links to it) and you can have any mersenne number you want.

If you program in Python, you can also look at DecInt.

It is designed for general purpose calculations with decimal formatted integers. With assistance from GMPY, it is about half the speed of mprint.

The Ars Food Court link is a temporary one due to the demand for that file right now. The official link is on the wiki page. It gets forwarded as needed.
