Really? I didn't know there were any large primes one away from a power-of-ten number (not sure if I said that right)...A number with almost all zeros.

Maybe there's actually plenty of them (not sure)? Although I'm sure all large primes are hard to find. Did you find it with GIMPS, or some other method?

It's pretty amazing - good work! :)
