On 14 Dec 2010 02:12:42 UTC, PrimeGrid’s PRPNet found the largest known Factorial prime: 103040!-1

The prime is 471,794 digits long and enters Chris Caldwell's The Largest Known Primes Database ranked 1st for Factorial primes and 136th overall.

The discovery was made by James Winskill of New Zealand using an Intel Core 2 Duo @ 2.13GHz with 2GB RAM, running 32 bit Windows XP. This computer took about 46 hours and 42 minutes to complete the primalty test with pfgw. James is a member of the PrimeSearchTeam.

For more details, please see the official announcement.

I'm glad to see that my efforts sieving for factorial primes are indirectly producing results.

I guess not. I did suggest to you via e-mail that good things come in threes. What a prognostication that was.

I'm waiting for someone to prove that prognostication wrong. :-)
