Default How will you know? The forum will be ON FIRE with excitement

People will send you fruit cakes and flowers and even real Greek olives.

The forum (by which I mean ATH) is very good at finding out very quickly when a prime report is made to the server. (All of the recent ones have been false alarms.)

Your machine will beep.
The screen will show you that it was found.

Also you'll receive an email regarding your find, if you registered and provided an email address.

Another superstar in this field is lycorn. He discovered the success report for what turned out to be M42643801 (not a false alarm!) a couple of months after the original LL test had been completed, unnoticed at the time.

Look at the last discovery.
If it wasn't for Lycorn it might have been missed for a long time!
