Wonder when we'll get to 1000+?

Also 2 things

The previous prime number before 541 is 523. It features a very large 18-number prime gap. As for this number, the difference from the last number 541, is 6, so its a sexy prime pair! Yay!

@Gargamel Look at that 18 number prime gap

587, which ties me for 5th place in the gap list, but.... oldest gaps take precedence, and if you already a place on the list, you lose the tie breaker to one who doesn't, hence why @cubinator beats out @YNM for fifth.  @qzgy, @Chemp and @lapis round out the updated board.

And from here on, all ties will be listed on the same line.  But gaps of 10 and 12 will soon be wiped off the list, so I'm  not redoing the stupid thing again already.
