How about: after you post in a thread, a little applet to play a retro game of your choice pops up below your post, so you can play until the thread gets a reply? Posted Image

The slowsort algorithm is a perfect illustration of the multiply and surrender paradigm, which is perhaps the single most important paradigm in the development of reluctant algorithms. The basic multiply and surrender strategy consists in replacing the problem at hand by two or more subproblems, each slightly simpler than the original, and continue multiplying subproblems and subsubproblems recursively in this fashion as long as possible. At some point the subproblems will all become so simple that their solution can no longer be postponed, and we will have to surrender. Experience shows that, in most cases, by the time this point is reached the total work will be substantially higher than what could have been wasted by a more direct approach.

Of course not, it was a joke Posted Image

(well, sometimes I aimlessly browse youtube videos while waiting for GD activity when I'm really bored - yes, shame on me)
