Default Project Euler

xouper posted a link to this site over at skepticalcommunity.com

It's a series of math puzzles, most of which are designed to be solved by writing computer programs - though some can be done just with pen and paper. There is an attached forum where the puzzles can be discussed, but as there is a competitive element, you're not supposed to discuss the problems until you have solved them by yourself.

I registered and intend to have a go at a puzzle, occasionally.

Default Re: Project Euler

Twelve years later and I've done 175 of them. :snail: I've made it hard for myself up to now by tackling the problems in numeric order - not skipping a problem even if it's boring or hard - so the highest number problem I've solved right now is 175. Also, I've been taking regular several-year breaks. :hammock:

They're adding new problems much faster than I'm solving them (the latest one is number 650), so now I'm thinking of skipping to the latest problems and having a go at a few of those - the discussion on those is bound to be more lively than the ones that were added a decade or more ago.
