Why not?
Why, I just needed a place to post a hobby note,
and happened upon this old miscellaneous hobby thread. Why? Because I'm eagerly awaiting my nfl team possibly getting into the superbowl this year if they win their conference title tomorrow (sunday, 1/23/11). Go Jets !!

New York Jets beaten 2011/1/23 by Pittsburgh Steelers. Final score Steelers 24 Jets 19. Jets were down 240, scored a field goal to be down 243 at halftime, then scored a 7 point TD, a 2 point safety, and a 7 point TD, only to fail to score the goahead TD. BTW 2, 3, 7, and 19 are Mersenne Prime Exponents. But 2^2011  1 is not prime. I wonder how it factors .....

saves future lookups. 2^20111 = Factored 2171881, 544919289684132720332849364364039531371953 If I count on my fingers correctly, that means 2^2011  1 = p7 * p42 * c558 I like to give long primes or composites as five lead digits, five dots, and five terminal digits, e.g 10^100  9 = c100 = 99999.....99991 So the factors are p7 * p42 = 54491.....71953 * c558 = abcde.....vwxyz. Could someone solve for a,b,c,d,e,v,w,x,y,z ?
