Hi Neil

Nice one...I find it quite astonishing that in the field of mathematics, that finding high level Prime Numbers is so important, especially in the world of cryptography...one wonders what Alan Turing would think of the tech we now have where a simple home PC can deduce such astronomically high Prime numbers...when he based most of his thought processes on a notebook and his brain...

regards
Tim
