Congrats to Matthew J Thompson, the discoverer!
Many congrats to PrimeGrid! Five Woodall world records in the year!!
It is really very impressive. I wish to all participants as many
successes (or even more) in 2008, although I am a little surprised by
the "density" of Woodall primes of these sizes! But primes are
surprising objects in many senses...
