ps - why were you 2 up so early in the morning?




7:00 isn't that early when there is a 6 month old in the house. :)

Just curious if anyone watched or had interest in the Royal Wedding. I didn't and don't but was wondering. I am reading articles after the fact however.


I watched it live Saturday morning. Watched, not listened. TV on but muted. It was nice background fluff. Pretty stuff. Later on, reading some of the news coverage about the wedding was actually sort of interesting.

My wife asked me "Why are you watching that?" I answered, "Well, it's either Trump, the Florida high school shooting, or the royal wedding." She responded with exactly two words: "Food Network!".

About an hour later, my son asked me "Why did you watch the wedding?" I answered, "Well, it was either Trump, the Florida high school shooting, or the royal wedding." He responded with exactly two words: "Food Network!".

I think both of them are watching too many cooking shows. :)



I was stuck watching it with sound on because my daughter wanted to see it. In any case, I did enjoy the faces of the British nobility as they listened to an African-American pastor speak about love. :)

FYI...link to GCW sieve appears to be broken.

I'm surprised when you state that the "u" has joined "our" alphabet in the last 500 years. Even the Romans had a "u", whereas they didn't have the "j" and the "w". Has the "u" been taken over later than the other Roman letters?
Not that I doubt your seemingly boundless knowledge, I'm just curious to know.



I believe that U and V were usually written interchangeably (V at word beginnings and U in the middle of words) until relatively recently. They were not used as separate letters until about 1386 if I recall that correctly.

Indeed. I saw the "thread is updated" icon and thought "Finally!".
(And now I'm doing the same, he he heh)

Maybe it's just because of TRP DC that started (and GFN-14 pairs hunt for some minor extent). And/or people returning to stuff like manual sieving and SOB DC.


And don't forget about pushing to the next badge on GCW sieve given the announcement regarding the remaining life of that subproject.

Forgive me if I'm getting the wrong end of the stick, but this couldn't possibly be Sir John Panton Kiszely, could it?

No, it is someone else.


Daniel, don't believe him. He calls his wife Erin when we all know it's "Yes dear"



No, Lord Rat has been married a long time. When he answers Erin, it is with those three magical words...

"I was wrong."

or maybe it is those other three magical words...

"You were right."


err...or probably those really important three magical words...

"I am sorry."

I figured the "gaps" would be extremely large. You can just see that by the number of units run between primes for any one project and of course there are the different flavors of projects as well. As they say, there really is no way to predict when a prime will be found.

Hmm I didn't realize that "Tim" was Scott's name :)


As for interesting gaps, I refer you to my avatar image, better known as an Ulam Spiral.


And, I can be called professor, doctor, mister, Scott, Hey You, among other things, "but that's not important right now." :)

"Ladies and gentleman, this is your stewardess speaking. We regret any inconvenience the sudden cabin movement might have caused this is due to periodic airpockets we encountered. There's no reason to be alarmed and we hope you enjoy the rest of your flight. By the way, is there anyone on board who knows how to fly a plane?"

Surely you can't be serious.


Sirius? What's that?


I am serious, and don't call me Shirley.
