I think a lot of people on this forum would see some of that in themselves even if they haven't been diagnosed myself included. Often Maths skills come along with that sort of disorder(or it encourages maths skills to develop. Maybe both.).
Even outside Aspergers, this forum has had a fair few people with mental illnesses in the past that influence their behaviour some of the time(it is obvious when they aren't on their meds).

Joking apart, searching and reading through the wiki article, I was never diagnosed, but I find myself in every picture there.

During my times, every child did those things, and nobody was talking about diseases. We used to eat dirty fruits and didn't develop monsters in our belly, and we used to skin our knees off and don't clean the wound and continue to play in the dirt and didn't die of tetanus, and we used to spend weeks playing the games we liked and we didn't get any "disorder" label attached to us because we spent too much doing one single type of activity. Nowadays, if you stare more than 2 minutes to a puzzle, you have aspersores... or how the hack is called... C'mon ppl wake up... where are we going?
Also in Wikipedia:

As a pervasive developmental disorder, Asperger syndrome is distinguished by a pattern of symptoms rather than a single symptom. It is characterized by qualitative impairment in social interaction, by stereotyped and restricted patterns of behavior, activities, and interests, and by no clinically significant delay in cognitive development or general delay in language. Intense preoccupation with a narrow subject, one-sided verbosity, restricted prosody, and physical clumsiness are typical of the condition, but are not required for diagnosis.

Describes me perfectly.

In days of yore, there was also no "attention deficit disorder" (ADD) or "attention deficit hyperactivity disorder" (ADHD) which are now said to require treatment with prescription medication.

But the problems did exist, and people recognized them and had devised an effective treatment, as immortalized in a musical ditty I learned as a young child, and was apparently taken from an old song called School Days:

So do I. My point referenced self-awareness. Some people use Asperger's (an example) as an excuse, others as a strength and yet others don't give a damn. My shins have been kicked more than once by my wife under a table to prevent a social gaffe. I have learned to move "just out of reach" and say my piece anyways. Progress is sometimes lateral.

And you address that attitude which makes me read your posts whenever you submit them.

I'm looking forward to seeing Artificial Intelligence technology making a dent in these successful factorizations than computations reliant on storage hardware.

?? I don't understand this comment. What does AI or "storage hardware" got to do with
ECM or NFS?

Also, what does it mean to "making a dent in these successful factorizations"?
Perhaps you mean "make a dent in unsuccessful factorizations"?

We would like to dedicate this computation to Peter L. Montgomery, who
passed away on February 18, 2020.


!!!!!!!

I received no emails nor have I seen any announcements anywhere!!!!!

jwaltos can answer for himself, but I see no reason why AI could not be used to find better algorithms to optimise the implementation of those methods.

In much the same way that natural intelligence, in the form of Peter Montgomery, produced modular multiplication, the FFT extension to stage 2, parallel block Lanczos, an extraction of square roots in algebraic number fields.

I accept what was written as factual.

You should learn to do the same when reading a technical article.

One should not believe everything that is written down somewhere.

A trite aphorism.

We are not discussing "everything that is written". We are discussing a technical
announcement by a professional society. [Soviet Academy of Sciences]

This is the third post of yours that has said nothing. (that I have seen). Please stop.
