Descriptive Data: (report abuse)
On 14 November 2001, the team of Michael Cameron, George Woltman, Scott Kurowski et. al. discovered a new record prime: 213466917-1. I am 20 years old. I live in Owen Sound, Ontario. I am taking a Computer Systems Technician course here at Gerogian College during the day. I was also recently hired with NuComm International, Inc. and am training for a position there at night.

I used my own computer, an AMD T-Bird 800Mhz with 512 Megs of RAM. When I upgraded from Windows 98 to Windows 2000 I was able to take advantage of a nice little NT feature not available in Windows 98: I could leave my computer running 24/7 unsupervised without having it crash. ;)

My friend informed me that I was wasting my CPU power and that if I was going to leave my computer on all the time I should make use of that wasted CPU time. He recommended Prime95 but at first I was hesitant. I wanted something that I could see happening. I wanted instant results. So I tried some other programs but they were not what I had expected. I decided to put Prime95 on my system becuase running it is like running nothing at all. I was so surprised about the beeping and thought that there was something wrong because I had forgotten all about it.

I am Michael Cameron and I would like to
