Does anybody have AMD vs Intel benchmarks on VW's execution speed? If you have some, please leave a comment including CPU and type/speed of ram.

What's this business of clerks and other office personnel needing to know something called Smalltalk? No longer I will be able to say Smalltalk without making an ambiguous reference. Now I will have to say "Smalltalk, the programming language" or something like that.
And what is this other Smalltalk? I tried looking it up, but I didn't find anything interesting. Would anyone be so kind as to tell me? Thanks in advance.

Here's a refinement of the problem. Given fixed integers a, b, and a variable integer x, find for what values of x this equation holds:
The idea is to find out if the equation has solutions by looking at a and b. Factoring each ax + b yields the answer but it takes way too much time. Here's some info.

I have a new math problem to tackle. For fixed integers a, b and a variable integer x, when is ax + b the sum of consecutive odd integers? Unfortunately the stuff I found (connected with Diophantine equations) is not very helpful, and I couldn't find papers about this issue either. Grrrr...
