On 6 February 2014, 16:02:23 UTC, PrimeGrid’s Sierpinski/Riesel Base 5 Problem project eliminated k=22934 by finding the mega prime:
The prime is 1,074,155 digits long and enters Chris Caldwell's The Largest Known Primes Database ranked 61st overall. This is the largest known base 5 mega prime. 86 k's now remain in the Riesel Base 5 Problem.
The discovery was made by Keishi Toda (yuyusuke@jisaku) of Japan using an Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-3930K CPU @ 3.20GHz with 14GB RAM running Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium.

This is the second world record base 5 SR5 mega prime Keishi has discovered in approximately one week's time!
