New Prime!

Thanks to fluke for pointing it out: 220,996,011-1 is prime.

That's pretty cool. Now I'm going to have to go see if there's a Mac OSX version of the GIMPS client and run that instead of Folding@Home.

seems like an odd choice of client switch - usually people seem to think "gimps does nothing to help people, folding may" :)

your processor, of course, run what you want! :)

Primes are cool. And I dig encryption, which primes are ueeful for. ;-)

However, it doesn't look like there's an easy out-of-the-box client for OS X, so I'll be keeping F@H going, seeing how it's already all set up and everything.
