1. "go to "[first 10-digit prime found in consecutive digits of e].com."Anybody heard anything about this? A friend told me it was a new google puzzle, but I can't find anytihng on the google site!
2. Ah I got somewhere. Google are hilarious.
3. I'm confused.
4. tehehe,
Congratulations. You've made it to level 2. Go to www.Linux.org and enter Bobsyouruncle as the login and the answer to this equation as the password.

f(1)= 7182818284
f(2)= 8182845904
f(3)= 8747135266
f(4)= 7427466391
f(5)= __________
yay for the people at google, they obviously have even less to do than us

This seems to be the final destination of this puzzle, a recruitment drive by google, how amusing

It's Google's way of recruiting new engineers.

You're supposed to go to "[first 10-digit prime found in consecutive digits of e].com" (i.e. 7427466391.com) and there you're told to find the next number in the sequence:

f(1)= 7182818284
f(2)= 8182845904
f(3)= 8747135266
f(4)= 7427466391
f(5)= __________

The answer is that all these numbers are 10-digit sequences taken from e that add up to 49. f(5) is the fifth 10-digit sequence in the decimal representation of e that adds up to 49 (5966290435), which is the password they want you to find.
7. all the digits add to make 49

so im guessin so does trhe function of 5??

Apparently there were billboards asking you to go to "[first 10-digit prime found in consecutive digits of e].com". You had to find the address first.
