            Try:

            2^859,433 -1

            These are known as Mersenne Prime Numbers after Father Marin Mersenne.

              So what, you just let your browser sit there and keep counting up? Not exactly what I'd call 'fun'.

                    maybe the people who find this stuff have way to much time on their hands.

                      I didn't go looking for it. I found it through some link somewhere a few days ago.

                      Well it looks like I probably won't be able to beat the 52 million number, since it's been 2 days and I'm only at 1.2 million. But who knows hehehe... I usually leave this computer on all day and night, even when I goto sleep.
                      Well, there it is.
