well, i let it run for like 7 hours and got no errors, i just stopped it cuz I just didn't feel comfortable stressing my cpu that much for so long.

oh, and after a little research (srry I should have done this to begin with) the program is trying to find a prime number that is not yet known about. the latest one has something like over 7 milliion decimal places.
