This is great! Let us pay him a visit.
Welcome, dear like minded number lover!
December 1, 2001
Charlton Harrison found a new record
binarydecimal palindrome
110 0010111100 0010101010 1101000011 1010000010
0000101110 0001011010 1010100001 1110100011
The binary string contains 83 digits !
the complete list
November 11, 2001 Enoch Haga's new book is out !

October 19, 2001
Hans Rosenthal found (prime proved) a new 4859-digit
Smoothly Undulating Palindromic Prime (SUPP for short)
9(89)2429 = (98*104859-89)/99
Compare this with L. C. Noll's old record of 2883 digits !
It took Hans more than 1847 hours to finish the proof.

Can you find four consecutive semiprimes ?
WONplate 117 (new)
October 10, 2001

a more varied form and hence considerably
more demanding to prove !

short) underwent a major upgrade. This was accomplished
thanks to Hans Rosenthal's contribution of probable primes
up to 20001 digits, bringing this collection to the point
where it will serve as a standard reference work
for this kind of numbers, at least that is what we aspire!

June 3, 2001 Jeff Heleen provided a nice list with polygonals with
palindromic sides, rank and number but can't remember
whether it's exhaustive or not... can you verify ?
