      This is indeed great news for the project. (It's a shame it's
      not a million-digiter - *so* close, though.) I hope we'll be
      seeing another visible blip in the relavant prime pages tables
      and charts corresponding to this computational feat.

      It's a shame that Louis /still/ isn't fully on top of the maths
      behind the project progress, but I guess he'll learn the hard way
      as the project continues. (He only has the same misconceptions
      that almost everyone else[*] does, he's not a special case.)

      I look forward to the next one...
