Fibonacci primes

I finally got my Fibonacci prime finding program like I wanted it. It now updates a web page, so that I can track its progress from anywhere. I still need to make the Fibonacci numbers wrap properly in Internet explorer, lynx does it properly! In the process of robustifying my Fibonacci prime finder, I acquired a third PC that is dedicate to running the program. It didn't come with a keyboard, mouse, or monitor, so I installed FreeBSD on it, and am running it headless.

FreeBSD has been a pleasure to use so far. Installation was very straightforward, and their web site is well organized. I would recommend it to anyone interested in running a *nix system. I also like their license much better than the GPL. You might notice the slight difference in length.
