 Reach the 900 Mega Primes overall (> 345 MP!!)
Maybe we can round this one up to 365 mega primes overall? (average of 1 mega prime / day)

Table from Yves. ...
Thanks!
Interesting that there are more GFN8 primes than GFN7 primes in your search range :)
And the accuracy of the estimates is quite remarkable.

A huge congrats on this achievement and to all involved! I will definitely help out with some GFN12 work when it goes online. Will it run on GPUs too or CPUs only?
Also I'm curious about the statistics. Would you mind posting a table of expected and actual number of primes for all N=1 to 11?

Truthfulness of "largest known base 5 prime"

Oh, you're right. The way I classified the examples with my attempt on a definition was completely wrong haha, never mind
maybe then b = "largest factor with maximum multiplicity in p1 (incl. composites)" yields my intended classification?

Truthfulness of "largest known base 5 prime"

I really think it's futile to come up with a precise mathematical definition of "base5 prime". For example, which of the following (composite) numbers would you consider to be "base5"?
2^1 * 5^1000000 + 1
2^10 * 5^1000000 + 1
2^100 * 5^1000000 + 1
2^1000 * 5^1000000 + 1
2^10000 * 5^1000000 + 1
2^100000 * 5^1000000 + 1
2^1000000 * 5^1000000 + 1
2^1000000 * 5^100000 + 1
2^1000000 * 5^10000 + 1
2^1000000 * 5^1000 + 1
2^1000000 * 5^100 + 1
2^1000000 * 5^10 + 1
2^1000000 * 5^1 + 1
Maybe say something like "base b prime" is a prime of the form p=k*b^n+/1 with b>1 that maximizes b^nk, gcd(k,b)=1? Not sure whether this makes sense
Then I think those numbers would be classified as
 base 5
2^1 * 5^1000000 + 1
2^10 * 5^1000000 + 1
2^100 * 5^1000000 + 1
2^1000 * 5^1000000 + 1
2^10000 * 5^1000000 + 1
2^100000 * 5^1000000 + 1
 base 10
2^1000000 * 5^1000000 + 1
 base 2
2^1000000 * 5^100000 + 1
2^1000000 * 5^10000 + 1
2^1000000 * 5^1000 + 1
2^1000000 * 5^100 + 1
2^1000000 * 5^10 + 1
2^1000000 * 5^1 + 1

Is it the smallest GFN13 with b > 10^16? /JeppeSN
Yep, it is. It's not too hard to find primes of this size, so I thought why not just go for it.
Wrote my own homemade (crappy python) sieve for it to get at least a few candidates out of the way before testing, so that was fun xD
Anyway, sorry for creating such much confusion :0
