I'm surprised I didn't know about this before.

This was the first problem.

Warning: mysql_connect() [function.mysql-connect]: Unknown MySQL server host 'mysql1028.servage.net' (2) in /mounted-storage/home15b/sub001/sc17392-BXBG/projecteuler.net/includes/register.php on line 8
Could not connect to MySQL

What the hell kind of mathematical insight am I supposed to gain by encountering MySQL error messages being served by Apache? ;)

If you don't know, I'm afraid I can't tell you. ;-)

This is a bit of fun. I did the first 6 problems over my lunch break on Thursday in Visual FoxPro. I've been at home with Java doing more problems. Some of them don't need code-based solutions. At least 2 of the first 11 can be done by inspection rather quickly, and at least 3 of the others require only a calculator and basic number theory.
