Create a QR quine (a "qruine" if you will) Design a QR code that legibly spells with its pixels (or the space between them) the text that it scans to. For example, this QR code scans to the letter A, and also spells out A in white: It does not matter what the scanned and displayed text is; it does not have to be coherent or readable. The winner is ...

Generalise perfect numbers Let \$\sigma(n)\$ represent the divisor sum of \$n\$. Perfect numbers are numbers whose divisor sum equals their double or \$\sigma(n) = 2n\$. For example, \$\sigma(6) = 12 = 2\times6\$ Superperfect numbers are numbers whose twice iterated divisor sum equals their double. For example, \$\sigma^2(16) = \sigma(\sigma(16)) = \sigma(31)...

I ain't no Fortunate Prime The primorial \$p_n\#\$ is the product of the first \$n\$ primes. The sequence begins \$2, 6, 30, 210, 2310\$. A Fortunate number, \$F_n\$, is the smallest integer \$m > 1\$ such that \$p_n\# + m\$ is prime. For example \$F_7 = 19\$ as: $$p_7\# = 2\times3\times5\times7\times11\times13\times17 = 510510$$ Adding each number ...
