I checked my Dell warranty before doing this:

North Carolina to Louisiana to New Jersey and back total mileage: 3,493 miles.
Interesting data: Number of access points detected by netstumbler: lost count, several hundred.
10M digit Prime95 accomplishments: Finished one, factored a second, started LL on a third.

... you are outraged by the EFF's $100,000 prize for the first > 10M digit prime because neither 100,000 nor 10,000,000 are themselves prime.

You donate some extra money so that the prize increases to the smallest prime > 100,000
