- 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
