[QUOTE=chalsall;589178]I friend of mine introduced me to [URL="https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCO5Da7kc1uvYwsSsnwcSCZg"]Rollin' Wild[/URL] yesterday. Finally had a chance to view this evening.

I had never heard of this team before, but their output is quite amusing. A particularly liked [URL="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BOOljk_LOcs"]The Chase[/URL], [URL="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ba62uuv-5Dc"]Rollin' France[/URL], and [URL="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eFYB652Yns8"]The Waterhole[/URL].

Apparently, they did the initial videos over a single session at a conference. Just to prove it was possible.

The seems to be inspired by the joke "This theory assumes all cows are spherical...[/QUOTE]

When you first heard about the Log4j vulnerability your first thought was "How could hackers hijack code that generates logarithms? "

As a matter of fact, I was thinking basically that! My first thoughts were about logarithms, then I was corrected by the video I was watching.

You spend six days in the hospital because of an emergency, and you're most annoyed because you can't remotely SSH into your farm to manage the <2K P-1'ing, nor launch your Colab instances...

P.S. I'm OK. But it was a little scary for a little while...

[URL]https://www.mersenneforum.org/gif/newposttrolls.gif[/URL][/QUOTE]Technically that is a symptom of mersenne forum addiction, not GIMPS addiction, but they are closely related maladies frequently occurring together. Sorta like alcohol and other drugs including nicotine, but usually less deadly.

I don't want to go too deep into the details, other than to say I'm both an asthmatic and a smoker (and an idiot). Oh, and also, that our medical facilities and talent here in little Bimshire are remarkably good.
