Comment Tablets are good for what they are intended for (Score 1) 627

I am a linux/firewall admin, i have tried to use an iPad for this but its just a pain. What it is good for, and i mean really good is as stated in posts before.. media. I use it for watching youtube, checking /. and playing silly games and it is very good for this. I have searched an article like this for admins but there is none because its a pain to use it for anything else than browsing or watching videos.

Comment Re:45th in order of discovery or just RTFWikipedia (Score 1) 232

If you read the wikipedia article.. "It is not known whether any undiscovered Mersenne primes exist between the 39th (M13,466,917) and the 47th (M43,112,609) on this chart; the ranking is therefore provisional. Primes have also not been discovered in increasing order. For example, the 29th Mersenne prime was discovered after the 30th and the 31st. Similarly, the current record holder was followed by 2 smaller Mersenne primes, first 2 weeks later and then 8 months later."
