Nayan Hajratwala is from Saline, Michigan and runs a
Internet consulting firm Chikli Consulting LLC.
Using the GIMPS
program and 111 days of idle time on his home computer (an
Aptiva 350 MHz, Pentium II) Nayan found a 38th Mersenne
prime number. His computer could have found it in three
weeks running full time.
