They said to one another, "Here comes this dreamer.
Come now, let us kill him and throw him into one of the pits; then we shall say that a wild beast has devoured him, and we shall see what will become of his dreams."

    Genesis 37:19-20

On the Picture

No, tye, that's definitely not my mother.

On Me

Prehistory

I was born of poor but honest academics in sunny Seattle, Wa, something over 30 years ago, and spent much of the first 12 years of my life riding a school bus by the headquarters of Nintendo of America and The Borg every day. I remained (largely) unscarred by this experience only thanks to parents who didn't believe in Television, and Apple Computer's marvelous product line.

More recently, I somehow ended up as a computational Chemist for a small pharmaceuticals company in Connecticut, partly as a result of having decided on a whim that I should acquire some Perl skills the summer after I graduated from college. Apparently I picked up enough of them, since I stuck in that job for the better part of a decade.

Current news

In the aftermath of that job's demise (along with most other jobs at that particular company), I've moved to New York and become a starving student with Perl-hostile professors, which partially explains my reduced probability density on Perlmonks these days.

On numbers

tilly wonders if anyone has any integers of 15-50 digits that they need factored...
<tilly> s/need/want/
<tilly> s/want/would be amused to see/
<tilly> s/amused/mildly amused/
<ChemBoy> for (1..50) {$foo .= int rand 10} print TILLY $foo
<tilly> ChemBoy: Your number is 23281692191326971370466218212504823982192335923150 and the factorization is [2,1;3,2;5,2;37,1;3967,1;37783747331959,1;9328956680850807325237324387,1]
<ChemBoy> coool....
<tilly> Note that the semi-colons divide factors, each of which is in the form, "number,repeated"
ChemBoy waits patiently for tilly's program to spit out a piece of advice and his exact weight
