My wish is that everyone in the GIMPS community, and your family and friends are able, to share in the warmth and the promise of the season.

I want to wish everyone "Happy Holidays" however you are celebrating, socialising, resting etc. Even to those who are having to work at this time.

And sincere best wishes for a merry Christmas (if like me that does not offend your beliefs).

Also have a happy and successful new year.

It's 5:43am Christmas morning, better finish wrapping these presents before everyone wakes up ;-) Does look like Santa has visited though, there is a big pile of gifts in front of the television.

We here at mersenneforum.org headquarters wanted to send some sort of holiday greeting to you all, but it is so difficult in today's world to know exactly what to say without offending someone. So we met with our lawyers yesterday and on the basis of their advice we wish to say the following:

Please accept with no obligation, implied or implicit, our best wishes for an environmentally conscious, socially responsible, low stress, nonaddictive, gender neutral celebration of the winter/summer solstice holiday, practiced with the most enjoyable traditions of religious persuasion or secular practices of your choice with respect for the religious/secular persuasions and/or traditions of others, or their choice not to practice religious or secular traditions at all.

We also wish you a fiscally successful, personally fulfilling and medically uncomplicated recognition of the onset of the generally accepted calendar year 2007, but not without due respect for the calendars of choice of other cultures whose contributions to society have helped make our world great, and without regard to the race, creed, color, age, mathematical ability, religious faith or sexual preference of the wishee.

By accepting this greeting, you are accepting these terms:

This greeting is subject to clarification or withdrawal. It is freely transferable with no alteration to the original greeting. It implies no promise by the wisher to actually implement any of the wishes and is void where prohibited by law, and is revocable at the sole discretion of the wisher. This wish is warranted to perform as expected within the usual application of good tidings for a period of one year or until the issuance of a subsequent holiday greeting, whichever comes first, and warranty is limited to replacement of this wish or issuance of a new wish at the sole discretion of the wisher.

And Seasons Greetings to all.
My Guess about M45 is possibly before 40,000,000
and probably before 50,000,000

Thumbs up Merry Christmas to All


I wish each and every one, friend or foe, religious or non religious, believer or unbeliever, mathematician or non, a very Happy Christmas and a brilliant New Year 2007.

Xyzzy has said it in the most inoffensive way so I have nothing more to add.

Well for those who are acquainted or have even read the Bible visit the jokes forum for smiles in my latest entry.

I find it amazing and saddening that anyone would get offended by an expression of good will.

Neither I nor my wife are Christians but we send out Christmas cards, including one to a Hindu family we know. We always get one from them too. They celebrate Xmas as a time of feasting and present-giving, just like my family. And quite right too, IMO.

So, Merry Xmas to all concerned, and may your God (if any) go with you.
