The Holy Computer Grail

NP Tattoo

I have my BS degree in Computer Science from East Carolina University, where I currently work as a software engineer.  Here is a picture of my Computer Science tattoo.  It is of the question P=NP.  This unsolved equation is considered by many to be the Holy Grail of Computer Science.  Every since I came across it in a Computability class, its possibilities and implications have fascinated me.

I realize that many believe that P!=NP.  To those I say “Prove It” (and be sure to remember me when you collect your Million dollar prize from the Clay Mathematics Institute).
