That makes no sense when k is set as a constant and you sieve away the exponents, n.

It obviously is one k, k = 25790513410853719562625473025.

That question was directed at ew, but I take it for some reason it is an "out of bounds" subject? I just went to the Hassel website, seems like an ad for the world's biggest megalomaniac.
