That`s cool! Once you figure it out (or find it on a website;-)) there`s more! It`s like a friggin scavenger hunt! If you think about it, that`s pretty damn nerdy.

e has a lot of uses in unexpected places, like in integration.

uh, `e` is not necessarily a variable. It is also a relatively important constant in mathematics with relation to exponents and logs and such. Don`t know much more. It`s approximate value is:

2.7182818284590

If more people understood that, it`d hold up a lot more traffic! But that was funny, rather than weird. :-)

You would have to write a program to do that, otherwise it would be too damn tedious. So I guess they are looking for people who are smart enough to find it on google or write a program.

Damn, I`m pretty sure I learned how to do the second part in calc class, but I forgot everything.

Clever idea, but a 3 minute Google search yeilded the answer for the entire riddle (there are 2 parts). Guess I`m good enough a cipherin` to work for Google!
