I'm confused.
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)= __________

and use your answer as a password on linux.org...if you log in, then you're redirected to the Google recruitment page.

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.

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.
