    ... and seaching for k*10^n+-1 makes it easy to find HUGE digit differences, such as: 2594940*10^1200+1 2594940*10^1200-1 and 2997750*10^1200+1

      and seaching for k*10^n+-1 makes it easy to find HUGE digit
      differences, such as:

      2594940*10^1200+1
      2594940*10^1200-1
      and
      2997750*10^1200+1
      2997750*10^1200-1
      found in about a half hour this morning while I was in the shower.

      however, I think that Ken's main point was trying to recruit some
      new people into the multi-factorial field (and offering a nice little
      challenge ;)
