Found a Prime!

I’m quite happy to have found my first prime as part of PrimeGrid!

I got the following e-mail this morning:

Congratulations! Our records indicate that a computer registered by you has
found a unique prime number. This computer is running BOINC, is attached to
the PrimeGrid project, and is assigned to the Sophie Germain Prime Search. What makes
this prime unique is that it’s large enough to enter the Top 5000 List in Chris Caldwell’s
The Largest Known Primes Database.

Since you have auto-reporting selected, the following prime was submitted on your

Added 94172 : 7318825406445*2^666666-1 (200701 digits)

On other news I will soon be starting work on an online recycling database for CCC. Keep checking for updates on that.
