OpenBSD 4.4 Released

QuickFox Re:Mebbe I should try it some time (235 comments)

although they lack a good pre-built distro like Ubuntu.

They do have a good pre-built distro. It's called PC-BSD. It's very good in my experience, very nice. And it's a breeze to install, just like Ubuntu.

I like Ubuntu even better. But PC-BSD is very fine, really, it deserves recognition. It's well worth trying.

45th and 46th Mersenne Primes Confirmed

QuickFox Re:Prime Post! (47 comments)

Not quite. In fact I will hereby reveal to the world the exact beginning and the exact ending of the 47th Mersenne prime (not just the 45th or the 46th, really the 47th!) as written in binary notation.

Not kidding, dead serious, this is the real thing:

11111111 11111111 11111111 11111111 11111111 11111111 11111111 11111111 11111111 11111111 11111111 11111111 11111111 11111111 11111111 11111111 11111111 11111111 11111111 11111111 11111111 11111111 11111111 11111111 11111111 11111111 11111111 11111111 11111111 11111111 11111111 11111111 11111111 ... ... ... 11111111 11111111 11111111 11111111 11111111 11111111 11111111 11111111 11111111 11111111 11111111 11111111 11111111 11111111 11111111 11111111 11111111 11111111 11111111 11111111 11111111 11111111 11111111 11111111 11111111 11111111 11111111 11111111 11111111 11111111 11111111 11111111 11111111

Mersenne numbers are by definition 2^n-1, which means that in binary notation every such number is a sequence of ones.

"Welcome to my website! By the way, would you like me and my biker friends to pay you a visit at your home on Small Street? Or else, if you prefer, how about you help fill my tip jar? $50 will be fine."

Locate Any WiFi Router By Its MAC Address

QuickFox Perfect for scaring people (204 comments)

This is perfect for when IPv6 takes off, with its built-in MAC address. Then my website can scare people shitless by greeting them with a note saying exactly where they live.
