prime directive? (2, Funny)

youn (1516637) | more than 5 years ago | (#27895331)

how do you call a way that drives prime numbers... a prime directive? how about the exceptions to the rule... a violation of the prime directive? From the article, they try to put prime numbers on a logarithmic scale... would you call it (or running the numbers though formulas) a warp engine? :p
