 He had a MAC back in the late 90's that ran in his office at the univercity up in North Dakota running the software looking for that next pirme number.  We lost contact sometime after I moved to Wisconsin from SD where we met at scout camp (we were staff)  Forgot about that program till this story. Ah memories.

MachBuster Nope - AFAIK the Googol is the highest named number. It's 1 followed by 100 zeros. A Googolionaire would be a *very* wealthy individual ;-)
