comment Does Mathematica use the Elliptic Curve Method (ECM) in FactorInteger[]?
@Leonid - well, that dated technology doesn't seem to do so bad :-). And Flash's focus is on animation; I'm not sure it's the right tool for a complex mathematical program (read: has the right function library for it).

comment how to read in a file in the same directory?
No, by no means inappropriate! I just think it looks funny :-). I didn't know you knew. I usually type user names in my posts in italic; not all user names are identifiable as such. But you don't have to change your habits for me! :-)

[service message] The "@" before a user name has no function in questions or answers, only in comments. They serve to notify that user of the comment, but only if he commented on that same answer earlier. Only one user can be notified of a comment this way. Poster of the answer will always be notified.

comment Determine if solution to linear system exists
@murray - Maybe he's thinking about something like primality testing, where you can say a number is composite in a second, but may need a couple of months to find the factors.
