      First congratulations!

      Second, as Jens (and you) stated, you are claiming a chain, not a single prime--so submit the chain to get credit at the Prime Pages. (To verify the claim of a chain, all five primes must be checked--the auto verifier is not smart enough to know unless you tell it what the primes are. And the comment lint will not give you credit for the chain unless there is a chain submitter.)
