    First thing that came to me. Bonus points if anyone can recollect where those numbers are from.

        sorry, please ignore.

        I was too stupid to get the pun.

        (hope that's not a bad omen)

    I'll be focussing on XP ratings, of course .... trying to raise my own as much as possible, while simultaneously lowering the ratings of everyone else.
    Muahahahahaha !!!

    Cheers,

    Implementing a random number generator using a Geiger counter and a piece of natural uranium ore i found.

    (And before you ask, yes i have that piece of ore in a very thick and heavy lead container)

    .
    perl -e 'use Crypt::Digest::SHA256 qw[sha256_hex]; print substr(sha256_hex("the Answer To Life, The Universe And Everything"), 6, 2), "\n";'

      Are you related to one of my college schoolmates who kept a jar of uranium salts in his room? He also had one of the very first personal computers from, I think, MITS, back in 1972 or '73.

        Unlikely. I'm from Austria if that information helps ;-)

        perl -e 'use Crypt::Digest::SHA256 qw[sha256_hex]; print substr(sha256_hex("the Answer To Life, The Universe And Everything"), 6, 2), "\n";'

    Other than the number of students in my classes that actually do their work, I continue to pay the "I don't know probability tax" and buy lotto tickets, so the winning numbers get my attention.

    I actually do know probability, but buying lotto tickets has a better chance of a positive payoff than drinking, smoking, or chasing members of the appropriate sex to whom I am not married

    I'll be focusing on the same numbers in 2020 that I've most focused on since I was about 3 years in to my career... My investment accounts as I accelerate them as rapidly as possible toward the all important FU Money figure I've come up with.

    The article at the link is a fun read, the video embedded in it is even better. :-)

    Just another Perl hooker - My clients appreciate that I keep my code clean but my comments dirty.

    Maybe e this year. Last year was calculating π to a trillion digits. Or maybe let the hard drives rest and go Mersenne prime hunting again.
