The Sier"pi"nski's Birthday Challenge has begun!

The second challenge of the 2021 Series will be a 10-day challenge celebrating the birthday of Wacław Franciszek Sierpiński, Polish mathematician and namesake of the Sierpinski Problem, known to PrimeGrid as Seventeen or Bust. The challenge will be offered on the SOB-LLR application, beginning 14 March 12:00 UTC and ending 24 March 11:59 UTC.

Most people celebrate March 14th as Pi Day. Now, there are a myriad of arguments for why pi is undeserving of all the attention of this holiday, not the least of which is the fact that all the pi hubbub overshadows the birthday of a real mathematical hero: Wacław Franciszek Sierpiński. (Come on, he even has "pi" in his name.)

Sierpinski was born on March 14th, 1882 in Warsaw. He has his own street in Warsaw, a statue at Cambridge University, and even a crater on the moon named after him. The extraordinary Polish mathematician was honored with all these due to his pioneering work on fractals, contributions to set theory, and his aid in cracking Soviet army codes. Most relevant to us here at PrimeGrid is his work in number theory where we find the Sierpinski problem, which is what the Seventeen or Bust project has devoted over 18 years and 6 million PetaFLOPS toward solving.

For more about Sierpinski and his Problem, check out the Seventeen or Bust synopsis below, or this fantastic article.

To participate in the Challenge, please select only the Seventeen or Bust LLR (SOB) project in your PrimeGrid preferences section.

Unbelievably, I slept through the start of Mountain Stage. Spun up my flock, but lost a little more than a 1/4 of the day.

Plus I'm noticing that the speed of the Vultrs has not kept up with the times--none of the instance are beating 50% for first-finder rate, and some are down in the 20's-30's.

We'll see if I get lucky!
