Since I’m writing my big assignment on Mersenne primes this week, I’m
likely to be offline for some time. If I have to attend my Inbox every 30
minutes, I’ll never get any work done, so I’ll probably kill my
fetchmail daemon after
the system is started.

Next week I’ll be busy writing a large paper on
Mersenne primes. All students in the Danish
*gymnasium* have to make a big report every year. In the first form you
write in Danish, in the second you write in history, and in the third and
final form, you can choose among those subjects you’ve had in all three
years. For me, that is Danish, math, and physics.

I’ve chosen to write about Mersenne primes (in
mathematics). I get the exact assignment on Monday, and then I have one
week for the writing. It’s going to be exciting — I’ve been polishing
off my LaTeX-skills for the last couple of
weeks for the job :-)
