Today's a cool day...hope North Korea stays calm :P

Oh yeah, did you guys hear? North Korea finally opened up their internet :P (I'm serious: http://seerpress.com/north-korea-makes-the-connection/9249/.)

Also, 10/11/10 = Judgment Day D:

[totally random and off-topic]The six digits of pi starting at decimal place #242424 are 424242.[/totally]

happybob heard PI!!!!!!

happybobjr now recites pi from memory.

3.14159265358979323846264338327950288419716939937510

*ahem*

3.1415926535897932384626433832795028841971693993751058209749445923078164062862089986280348253421170679

Yes, I memorized all of that.

And yes, I have no life.

But proof that there are people more devoid of life than me: http://www.newsgd.com/culture/peopleandlife/200611280032.htm

And apparently, Yahoo! just computed pi to the 2 quadrillionth digit. What a waste of processing power :P

Maybe that's why Yahoo! is so slow...

why don't they do something useful, like trying to find the rsa key for nspire :P

Speaking of which, I've finished memorizing the RSA keys! :D

for the 84/83?  why not do what BrandonW did and etch it on your calc?  :P

Apparently, they just calculated just the 2 quadrillionth digit, not everything up to it. Still, it would take a desktop computer 500 years to do that. Did anyone calculate the amount of time needed to do the nspire rsa factorization on just one computer?

Well, it's impossible to find the 2 quadrillionth digit unless you go through all the others (I think, but I'm not sure) :P So I'd assume they did find all the digits up to that point.

EDIT: Let's calculate how long it would take a TI-83 Plus to brute-force RSA key (worst-case scenario)! I don't know how to calculate it, though...

Worst case scenario?  Let's see, if one computer could go through 1,000,000,000 numbers per second. (Not even possible, I don't think), then that means:
1 sec = 1,000,000,000
1 min = 60,000,000,000
1 hour = 3,600,000,000,000
1 day = 86,400,000,000,000
1 year(365.25 days) = 31,557,600,000,000,000
1 decade (10 years) = 315,576,000,000,000,000
1 century (100 years) = 31,557,600,000,000,000,000
1 millennium (1000 years) =315,576,000,000,000,000,000
That is one computer over the course of a millennia.  1000 years only gets us 21 digits, and we need 309 digits.
So, 1e309 divided by 1e21 is 1e288 if my math is correct.  So we would need 1 x 10^288 computers to factor it in a 1000 years.  Remember now, we were generous at the start of this, and gave it 1 billion numbers per second.

This is the worst case scenario.
