How is this I found a top 5000 prime :D


Dear Primefinder,

Congratulations! Our records indicate that a computer registered by you has found a unique prime number. This computer is running BOINC, is attached to the PrimeGrid project, and is assigned to the Sophie Germain Prime Search. What makes this prime unique is that it's large enough to enter the Top 5000 List in Chris Caldwell's The Largest Known Primes Database.

Since you have auto-reporting selected, the following prime was submitted on your behalf:

Added 117581 : 1335620049585*2^1290000-1 (388341 digits)
 
Is this a suitable reward for finding a prime? :D

Or, would you rather have an order of beer and tamales. :p
 
For longer than I can remember, some of PrimeGrid's badges have required twice the credit as other badges. The reason for that difference long ago ceased to be relevant and so we have lowered the required credit for those badges to be the same as all the others. Therefore, you may have gone up a badge level in those projects. This change also applies retroactively to closed or suspended projects.

The affected projects are all the sieves, AP26, GFN, and PSA.

Discussion of this topic is in this thread.

So, after the change, I have
321 - Silver
Cullen LLR - Silver
PPS - Bronze
PSP - Gold
SOB - Silver
SR5 - Bronze
SGS - Bronze
TRP - Silver
Woodall LLR - Silver
Cullen/Woodall Sieve - Ruby
PPS Sieve - Jade
TRP Sieve - Silver
GFN - Turquoise
 
That is such a nice marbled Prime that I think I will have to turn down the tamales this time and go for the Prime. :p
