    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.
