My new addiction: Project Euler

I've got a new dangerous addiction: Project Euler. It's a website with cool math problems, like:

Find the only Pythagorean triplet, {a, b, c}, for which a + b + c = 1000.

These problems are quite easy to solve with a little piece of code, so it's great way of learning a new programming language. I try using that to learn ocaml for my functional programming class, but sometimes I forget about that and succumb to the tentation of writing a C# console application with great ease.

I have solved 12 problems out of 218 so far and when I start solving them, it's hard to stop! Yep, one more addiction...
