uilleann, let me make one thing clear I am not now, nor have I ever tried, to "police" you, whatever that may mean. Our benevolent dictators are the only ones who can make any rules here, and they very seldom do. However as someone that demands respect (by for instance spelling your name correctly), you must surely not be surprised if it is noted when you to fail extend elementary courtesies to other members. It has to run both ways.

When you started to post here again, you seemed to have made some real changes for the better, but like littlefish I also detect similar signs to the events that led to your last exit from here. You seem again to be actively looking for reasons to fall out with people. Try to lighten up a little, and be less dismissive of those with different talents and interests to your own.

A attractive young lady threatening to show up on their doorsteps if they don't stop.

I think there might be a slight flaw in that plan...

even if you did find a snag, I don't find a flaw.

no stoppy, no girly?

could still be quite effective.

edit: it appears spidey catches my drift perfectly.

Well of course I didn't get it. I'm all sweet and innocent and my mind is never in the gutter.  -

No, I mean the huge horizontal scrollbar that's making this thread a pain in the ass to read.

Care to edit the post and throw in a line break for those of us squinting at already-microscopic work laptops? 'Cuz otherwise, I thought it was cool. [Big Grin]

Heh, point. I noticed, not sure why I didn't actually fix that.

The longest random prime so far that she's generated was 4096 bits I think, but that took quite a bit of CPU time to achieve. The code itself is based on her 'zanymath' lib that does integers to arbitrary numbers of bits.

The funny thing is that she describes the standard C library as "fossilized" and is replacing the entire lot with new code and new features :P I am not going to visit her though as she has a taste for human flesh and knows all about what to prepare it with ...
