Can you imagine a magazine called The Fibonacci Quarterly, web site by your supermarket checkout stand - with all those "popular" magazines showing tanned half bare bossoms and whitened perfected teeth?

This issue has some interesting interesting material -

- an article by Donald Knuth of "The Art of Computer Programming" fame and friend/fellow of CHM
- an article by Emma Lehmer, wife of D. H. Lehmer who made several Factoring Machines.
and this article - permission to post here - about using an IBM 1401 to compute "The Golden Ratio" to 4599 decimal places - without special extended arithmetic subroutines ;-))
