Actually if he had a working implementation of Shor's algorithm and used it to factor 15 I would be rather impressed.

First time I read this I thought it said "N= 187!" -- the product of the integers from 1 to 187.

I can factor 187 mentally (2 doesn't divide it, 3 doesn't divide it, 5 doesn't divide it, 7 doesn't divide it, 11, -- divides it!) , and anyone can factor 187! with pencil and paper, if they can reckon the primes up to 187.

Hmm. You take something that doesn't work, and then "fix" it with something else that doesn't work.

How are you coming along with the factors for the 18 digit challenge?
