I joined GIMPS in 1996 before they found their first prime.
When the exponents on GIMPS got too big for my patience, I
moved to other projects. When I still couldn't find any
primes, I just picked an exponent and started searching. It
worked, because I did find a couple of primes that way.
Currently (March 2003), I spend most of my time working on
problem. I found a prime in the Riesel search that
briefly put me in the top 100.
