Windows 7: Spooky Halloween prime number

Spooky Halloween prime number

I came across this weird prime number in the UK press today (31 Oct).


it's the number of the beast '666' with 13 zero's each side (13 considered unlucky) and a 1 - known to math dudes as Belphegor's Prime. Not only is it a prime number (divisible only by itself and 1) but it's also palindromic (reads the same backwards + forwards).

Belphegor's Prime - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Belphegor's Prime: 1000000000000066600000000000001!

I guess it was mentioned 'cos it's Halloween today, and they were looking for a 'spooky' slant.

Happy Halloween !

Hiyya Jed I read here Number of the beast - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia that 666 is the mark of the beast if you believe in that stuff and that in Hebrew the translation form the Greek is 616:)

That is of course if you believe in that sort of stuff

Spooky Freezer
I bought a new compact freezer, a couple month ago, and it is fine, except a couple of things. I live in a very compact apartment, where there really isn't room for it, so at first I put it on the balcony, until the apartment manager griped, and made me put it inside. Unfortunately, the only...
