Re: "Haiku Proof" discussion

Top prime's divisors? Huh? yeah, that doesn't make sense proofwise. The divisors of a prime are itself and 1. The top prime's divisors' product plus one is just the top prime plus one. multiply all primes. add one to that. factors are...? QED Bitches! Yeah, I came here to see if anyone had figured ...

Re: "Overstimulated" Discussion

Ugh, Randall, get out of my head! (Which is to say, I don't get it. Explanation?) hes taking all of the prime numbers and making rectangles with width P i and height 1/P i , and then trying to figure out whether the height of all of those rectangles stacked on top of each other is infinity or if it...

Re: "Tones" Discussion

I wanted a ringer tone, but my phone just came with a variety of preloaded melodies instead, and my refusal to pay for something as silly as a ringtone trumps the issue.

Re: "Success" Discussion

Gods, it's true. I knew it when I read it yesterday, but given the trials of the past day, it rings ever truer. My progression went something like this: - I want a version of linux that boots up fast to dual boot on my laptop. - Well, I can't resize my NTFS partition for some reason, but I do have t...
