Thanks for posting it, Felipe. I did not realize she was in that much of a hurry. As to her choice of one impression to report out of the areas I tried to explain to her, that one isn't bad. I ...

Nice article. I like the last quote: "MathOverflow is meant to be a little corner of the Internet for professional mathematicians."

Thanks, Felipe. That page had a link to Schinzel's Hypothesis H, which is not so much an ointment for the relief of itching in the posterior regions as it is a conjecture on the representation of ...

Now I'm glad I checked.

I see, Powerpuff did register as I asked, number 8078. Could somebody please merge the Powerpuff accounts 8078 and 8063 ?]]>

Thanks, Kevin. That is exactly the situation I would have guessed. But I suspect the only discussion I have ever seen is of x^2 + 1 and I do not remember where I saw that off MO, other than places ...

Felipe, if your fingers can reach the keypad of the iPod again in your current weakened state, I wound up asking whether there were any instances of a polynomial in only one variable, integer ...
The dollar signs don't seem to do anything here. We are powerless, adrift at sea.]]>

I'm too important to bother? Now, I feel special! BTW I'm not travelling, I'm just on the couch surfing the web on my iPod because I'm too lazy to retrieve and boot up my laptop.

She asked about you, I told her you were too important to bother. Also Felipe Voloch.

I just got a call from a reporter for the (Berkeley) campus Daily Californian, asking what it is like to contribute to MO. She had evidently spoken to Anton earlier, that may have been in person. I ...
