Your opinions about PrimeGrid
Prime numbers hold the ultimate key to data compression !!

Imagine this:
Any! number can be composed by using only prime numbers. Since data can always be converted to a number, this means that ALL data can be composed by prime numbers.
If for example a prime, consisting of 200000 digits (my biggest so far has 200700), can be presented by a formula of no more than 25 characters!
Needless to explain how far you can go when you start combining primes to compose any number imagineable...
A movie of several GBytes could be turned into a file of a few KByte...

The most impressive of all, in this matter, is that, unlike compression methods like jpeg,mpeg and many others, prime compression doesn't let you lose 'a single bit' !!!!

Now that's worth crunching!
