Who did this?


P.S. I bet this will lead to a slogan.
the only person who can do this i think is Xyzzy
just the sort of thing he would do too

Awe, come on, this guy at least deserves a perfect number for the number of his posts. How about 6? (We're talking quality here, not quantity, otherwise I would suggest 496.)

I've had 6. I've had 28. And I was just over a month away from having 496. I'm sure there's something special about 205.

Xyzzy, put my number back please!

If we're talking quality, allow me to ask: which 6 postings would that be?

Xyzzy, please don't, as a favor to the rest of us!

Or you could list your own post count as aleph-null and his as aleph-one, maybe then he'll be happy and won't post anymore.

Good point. I would be hard put to come up with 6, but he is at least learning to do GNFS factorizations, and his aliquot sequence investigations have hit upon the interesting dynamics which drive the growth of many unresolved cases.

Would my original first factor from Aliquot 10212 be one of them?

Posts: 206.

Eek, a message from beyond the grave!!! The ghost of the Gerbils is haunting the forum!

Incidentally, not intended to insult anyone but food for thought, hopefully:

Edit: yeah, I guess the factor qualifies, so I propose changing your post count to 1.

Edit 2: GIS for "Gerbil Ghost:" http://flickr.com/photos/14081055@N00/159855913. The internet has everything.
