Oh, you know, there are always some ways to increase the work efficiency.
For example, a long time ago, in Soviet Union, they discovered that one
guy, Stakhanov, worked 24 hours per day. And could participate in the
Party meetings. 

So, they asked him: "Comrade, how can you do that?!" And he answered:
"It is very simple, I just get up one hour earlier". 

So, switch your computer earlier, and you will be able to compute
2^2^2^2^2^2^2^2^2^2^2^2^2^2^2^2^2^2^2^2^2^2^2^  (right assoc.) as well.
