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...
