    Prime95 updated to v29.4

    1) GIMPS has a new sub-project -- finding (probable) prime Mersenne cofactors.
    This sub-project has two parts: 1) Running PRP tests, and 2) Finding
    additional factors. To support this new sub-project there are three
    new work preferences: PRP on Mersenne cofactors, PRP double-checking on
    Mersenne cofactors, ECM on Mersenne cofactors.
    2) Like LL tests, PRP tests now support shift counts to aid in running double-checks.
    Shift counts are only supported for Mersenne numbers and Mersenne cofactors.
    3) PRP tests now support a type of low overhead error checking that almost guarantees
    correct results even on flaky hardware. We call this Gerbicz error-checking after
    it was proposed by Robert Gerbicz at mersenneforum.org. This error-check only
    works for base-2 numbers.
    4) Because PRP tests are highly reliable, we now offer the option to do PRP tests
    instead of Lucas-Lehmer primality tests. There are 4 new work preferences
    similar to LL work preferences: first-time PRP tests, world record PRP tests,
    PRP tests on 100 million digit numbers, and PRP double-checking.
    If you are looking for a 100 million digit prime, PRP testing is recommended
    rather than LL testing.
    5) For non-base-2 PRP tests, there is a new option to run each iteration twice and
    rollback if a mismatch occurs. Useful only on flaky hardware due to the obvious
    high overhead.

    Those look like being sad and shocked at the same time.
    Maybe @Phoenix found an unknown Mersenne prime no.

    New Windows 10 Cumulative Updates

    Brings the Windows 10 Build to 16299.64

    Cumulative Update = http://download.windowsupdate.com/d..._f214597fd57cd8284a363ada825a3d8ca16bf632.msu

    Adobe Flash Player Update for Windows = http://download.windowsupdate.com/d..._35f2f534365f41e09b9d707b220b1ea7b1379c1f.msu

    This update includes quality improvements. No new operating system features are being introduced in this update. Key changes include:

    • Addressed issue that causes the Mixed Reality Portal to stop responding on launch.
    • Addressed issue that causes a black screen to appear when you switch between windowed and full-screen modes when playing some Microsoft DirectX games.
    • Addressed a compatibility issue that occurs when you play back a Game DVR PC recording using Android or iOS devices.
    • Addressed issue where the functional keys stop working on Microsoft Designer Keyboards.
    • Addressed issue to ensure that certain USB devices and head-mounted displays (HMD) are enumerated properly after the system wakes up from Connected Standby.
    • Addressed issue where the virtual smart card doesn't assess the Trusted Platform Module (TPM) vulnerability correctly.
    • Addressed issue where Get-StorageJob returns nothing when there are storage jobs running on the machine.
    • Addressed issue where applications based on the Microsoft JET Database Engine (Microsoft Access 2007 and older or non-Microsoft applications) fail when creating or opening Microsoft Excel .xls files. The error message is: “Unexpected error from external database driver (1). (Microsoft JET Database Engine)".
    • Addressed issue where application tiles are missing from the Start menu. Additionally, applications that the Store app show as installed don't appear on the application list of the Start menu. Computers that have Internet connectivity and upgrade on or after November 14, 2017 will receive this preventative solution and avoid this issue. Machines that lack network connectivity or have already encountered this issue should follow the steps in the Microsoft Answers thread “Missing apps after installing Windows 10 Fall Creators Update”. Microsoft will release and document an additional solution in a future release.
    • Addressed issue where Microsoft Edge cannot create a WARP support process and appears to stop responding for up to 3 seconds during a wait timeout. During the timeout period, users cannot navigate or interact with the requested page.
    • Security updates to Microsoft Scripting Engine, Microsoft Edge, Microsoft Graphics Component, Windows kernel, Internet Explorer, and Windows Media Player.
    If you installed earlier updates, only the new fixes contained in this package will be downloaded and installed on your device.
