    Project Euler

    I know we've got several math/programming types here. Anyone into http://projecteuler.net? I discovered it 2 months ago and have become obsessed. (As you can see from my current sig image.)

    Some of those look like fun.

    This seems like something you would like. I didn't realize how much Colton would be into it though.

    Doing physics is doing math with an excuse.

    They start out being largely programming that can be done with "brute force", but then (around 50-80 problems in) they kind of switch to requiring a good knowledge of math to figure out how you should write your programs so that they will finish in less than your lifetime. :-) Consequently I've learned a lot of number theory in the last two months!

    If you decide to sign up, you can PM me for my "friend key".

    I got a B.S. in Math in addition to my degree in physics, and have always enjoyed programming. So it's a pretty good fit... although people with an even better math background are definitely at an advantage for the higher numbered problems.

    I never knew Colton was Asian. Are you related to Ann by chance?

    Two jobs, five kids. That's pretty easy math. I might give it a try in 10 years or so.

    What does a friend key do?

    Took me two tries to get #1. How embarrassing. "Less than" isn't explicitly inclusive, duh. RIF.

    Friend keys allow you to see which problems the other person has solved.

    I always thought it should have been the "Houston Eulers"
