Wrote a quick program which searches for the highest prime number and writes it to a file. You can close the program and open it again and it will start from where it left off.

Don't ask me why! I remember reading somewhere that they are awarding $150,000 to whoever can find the highest prime number, but I think the highest is like 10 million digits long. If you leave it running you might win some money in 50 years time haha was fun making it though.

Heres the code if you wanna try it. It's only short. - professional music for your games.

Isn't the problem here that your dataset is kinda' Infinite ?

17,425,170 digits to be precise.

If you like big numbers, try googling Grahams number - a number so large that it's not possible to imagine a number large enough to describe the number of digits it has.
