Default GIMPS people are B-grade super-agents!

I was just watching the movie Hidden Agenda (2001) with Dolph Lundgren in the lead role.
I stopped watching after he stated, that half the people in this forum are using super high-tech agent stuff:

"We're using a Mersenne Prime Algorithm. That makes shadow tracking that much more difficult."
- Jason Price (Dolph Lundgren)

It's followed with a complex plan and a video of the infamous Mersenne Prime algo. plan-thingy.

Just wanted to share this with you :P

I admit ashamed:

I'm using my Mersenne-prime-algol to paint the sky blue in the morning. I got this trick by the famous Dr. Lukas Lehmer.

Dolph's maths and cryptology "knowlogy" is still probably exponentially better than Dan Brown's.

"If his secret Mersenne prime key dies, it does not matter." -- Ivan "Crypto Geek" Drago

In other words, we're going to keep using the super-duper Mersenne prime algorithm, "Ivan" if it kills us.
