So the Prime Number the MegaNode computing facility just found has now been confirmed – it is:

3438759891285*2^1290000-1

Which is 388,342 digits long and is in the top 5,000 largest primes.

I just ran the numbers through Mathematica to see what the whole thing looks like – it takes up many pages – and the last digit is a 9.
