Does it help to find these, to have God on your side? (I'm sure it helped to have the church's computers use.)

Looking at the graphs on PrimeNet, after the announcement of the new prime there was a bump in assignments. First it was a lot of DC's and some first time. Now that machines have turned in good DC's there is an increase in first time results and DC results have slid down.

Mersenne primes would be hard to do this with given their low concentrations. I did figure someone could turn factoring at sufficiently high bitrates into value.
