[Plug] $55,000 prize for 1st 10,000,000 digit prime

The latest version of the GIMPS program has added an option to just
process numbers for this contest.  This program only uses idle CPU cycles,
so its operation/presence is not noticable.  I run it continuously on my
PC at home & at work.


17) An option to get only 10,000,000 digit numbers to run primality tests
    on has been added to the Test/Primenet dialog box.  See
    http://www.mersenne.org/prize.htm for rules on claiming the EFF award
    for finding a 10,000,000 digit prime.
