Why search for 321 primes ?

The answer to this question depends on your point of view. Some people just like engaging in distributed computer searches by donating their spare computer power which would otherwise go to waste. Others may be interested in prime numbers which can be used in such things as random number generation or cryptography; or simply to get more understanding about the primes themselves. Maybe the glory of finding huge record primes of several hundred thousand digits appeals to some searchers. Fortunately, the "321" form is well suited to rapid calculation on modern computer equipment without any noticeble preformance loss to the user.
