[QUOTE=chalsall;596362]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 Binshire are remarkably good.[/QUOTE]

Glad you're ok.

[QUOTE=chalsall;596368]Thanks. Much meditation on this experience is to commence...[/QUOTE]Be good to your self going forward. Given the thread title, consider all the hardware and electricity that the currency cost of smoking supplies could be paying for instead.

LOL. Thanks; I needed that. And, copy.

True story
 
In my dream I went to: Account / My Account / Results
to see if I've found any factors, expecting a couple; but I see over a dozen and it's so exciting I physically woke up.

PS sadly it was only a dream. I did not see a dozen when I wake up.

You just might be addicted to GIMPS if publicly saying that the chances of the smallest untested exponent giving a Mersenne prime are slim because it does not fit the logarithmic heuristic, [SPOILER]but actually thinking that the probability is 50% because it will give a Mersenne prime or not, and somehow having the feeling that will definitely give a Mersenne prime... until proven otherwise[/SPOILER].

You just might be addicted to GIMPS if you note happily that your house has a 100 amper fuse by 220 volt and you ask all your 14 neighbours in the house if they could reduce their power consumption, because you need the whole power for a short calcualtion of your cluster.
It would be urgent, not taking long time and you promise you will make a house party afterwards.

You might be addicted to GIMPS if you have a hot room in your house.

With a window open.

You just might be addicted to GIMPS if your computers are hotter than [SPOILER]your girlfriend[/SPOILER].
