Hi Hans and All,

Note: "PrimeForm".

There are Aleph-Null Primes out there and enough Forms to keep us all

happy.

I'm an official, paid-up "Factor Freak". I like tailoring my PFGW

searches by balancing the size of the integer N against the Cyclotomic

"shape" of N-1. I also like it that, when PFGW says Phi(p,x) is PrP,

that is when the real work starts: spreading my available CPU resources

according to:

* Size of PrP

* Digits lacking for proof

* Factors found already

* Count and size of composite factors remaining

* Hours of work already done

... success in this involves theory, judgment, experience and (most

importantly) luck. You "Trivia Freaks" determine ranges for your PFGW

and Proth searches. What determines a successful range? I would suggest:

theory, judgment, experience and (most importantly) luck.

This is just the way I like to amuse myself. I am sure that I speak for

all Factor Freaks when I say: "Congratulations on proving an enormous

prime". None of us _really_ consider such work "trivial". (You do

realise that David enjoys trolling?)

Servus,

Andy
