Bouk replied to just me, but intended it to go to the list, so here's some more input.

I don't agree with you on this Phil. A Cunninghamchain

meets a certain criterium. An ECPP prime doesn't have

to. It's only asset can be that it is a prime which is

in the top 20 of ECPP primes.

So if I would prove the first R of the certificate of

the La Barbera record to be prime with Titanix who's

gonna stop me from entering it in Chris Caldwell's

database? It would be the start of a new chain.

Those first 19 "R" primes are just simply ECPP primes

in their own right. All proved by Giovanni and Marco

with Titanix.
