No termination news from me
Just a mention that we're down to one week left in 2011. Left's see if we can finish the year with a bang.... Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and here's hoping for a better 2012!

One more for 2011!

Updated....and a size check on the post shows that we're good to go: we can get (almost) as many terminations/merges in 2012 as are in the top post now and still fit them all into one post....

Here's one to start off the new year:
224560 terminates in 3185 terms, after a bumpy ride down from 113 digits.

While running my old "find_merges" script, I've noticed that:
241506 merges with 4800 816792 merges with 36348 (reserved by Greepley) correct?

241506.2822 merges with 4800.7 I noticed 816792 a couple weeks ago also (it should actually be credited to 2011). I didn't say anything at the time and then I couldn't remember which sequence it was so I just figured it would turn up eventually. Which it has. I assume Greebley found the merge, but his last post was Oct. 19th.

Yes, in true capitalist style I don't do anything myself, my workers do it all for me. I've had much more success in terminations by following the workers' simple rules than by trying to pick winners myself... I'm sure there's some life lesson in there but I don't seem to be learning it.
