Smile Own a piece of math history, for free!

We have a few of these buttons to give away. They were kindly donated to us by Curtis Cooper.

This will be the third time that he has donated buttons to the forum.

We probably do not have enough buttons for everyone in the world, so we will be running this operation sort of like a lottery.

We need you to send a PM to us with your complete address. It is very important that your address is formatted in whatever international format that is appropriate.

If your name is "pulled from the hat" the button will be shipped to you, wherever you live, for free.

If you live anywhere other than the USA the button will be listed on the customs form as a gift with a value of one USD.

There are some special rules/exceptions:
  • Certain people within the number theory community are sent buttons automatically. Some of these people do not participate on this forum but we can always hope that they decide to!
  • If you have the previous two buttons, take a picture of them together and send us the picture (xyzzy@mersenneforum.org) and you are guaranteed a third button. (You must send us this picture by the end of April 2013!)
  • Each super mod has been assigned special "gifting power" and have chosen certain people to send buttons to.
Unlike previous button deals, we will not be mailing out all of them at once. This operation will take two or three months to complete, mainly because our resident forum assistants do not have opposable digits.

Please use this thread for general reminiscing and button discussion.

The first batch of buttons has been dispatched via an irritable yak. (We had to cut costs somewhere!)

If you receive your button please post about it here so we can keep track of things.

Many thanks, Mike - I woke up this morning to the sound of loud yakking outside my window - that explains it.

One problem: some of these people probably aren't members of this forum.
