I doubt the original team that worked on the 42 would have ever guessed that a simulator based on their product design would eventually be used for this kind of number crunching. Just for giggles I added a feature to my Windows app today that sets the current base to a decimal number containing anywhere from 16 to 116 pseudorandom digits, then checks sequentially from there for 30 seconds before moving on to the next random base. I can run several instances of the app simultaneously, so when my laptop isn't busy doing something else I'll launch several instances and leave one set to a standard search while the others use the "lottery approach". I suspect my chances are better playing the lottery than they are at finding a new PD cube, but it's fun to watch it try.
