Nice One, Google!


Happy Birthday, Fermat!

(now if you would only send Joe the proof of your last theorem ... in a dream, perhaps? ... all our financial troubles would be over)

You know that this proof has been available since 1995, right? (Chris.. hey can you remove the identity step on comments so I can be _me_ again.)

I remember when that proof came out. Apparently it was controversial because it involved some math that wouldn't have been available in Fermat's time. I don't know if the proof has been generally accepted by now or not. Anyway, I just remember Joe commenting that there was still the possibility of someone writing a "real" proof. But I'm not at all versed in this stuff, so who knows?
