comment probability paradox with two queues
@Michael Chernick. I am looking in Feller 2nd volume. I indeed had 2-volume, and still have it. He discusses two queues of cars in 1.5c, p.31 my edition, h. He does not mention what I asked. He says that probability of arriving to the "gate", or service point, is one, but expectation of waiting time is infinite :-(. Regarding who will gvet services faster, me or "Smith" who joined the other queue when I joined my queue, he does not say anything.

comment Best method to calculate an unknown prime
@Mixxiphoid: quote "so k repetitions reduce the error probability to at most 2^−k, which can be made arbitrarily small by increasing k." unquote. Do you realise wat is probability, for example, of 2^-64 ? it is approximately 2^32 times smaller than probability your computer giving nonsense results because of hardware error.
