  • The digits of e go on forever and don't repeat, so I guessed that any consecutive sequence of 10 digits is found in e. Then just google for a list of prime numbers and find the first one in this list [prime-numbers.org]. However, I didn't find that URL. Now I realize that what they really meant was to find the first 10-digit sequence in e (like by dragging a 10-digit window from left to right along the number) which happens to be a prime number, not the first prime number that happens to be in e.

    Next I'd try to find an alphabetical list of hostnames and look through the 10-digit numbers .com. I don't know where to find such a list, though.
