Mea culpa.

The consultation was with me, as I'd posted an article telling him everything he needs to know to find good NFS parameters for his factorization. Posting a succinct pointer to it seemed a less bad alternative to enduring several more months of whinging.

Raman: my earlier advice to you stands. Come back here after you have factors and not before. Not everyone here is a soft hearted/headed (choose 1) as I am and I assure you that our collective tolerance is still extremely low. You will find period of quiet contemplation will serve you very well indeed. Meditation has a lot to recommend it.
