Abstract — In the process of verifying entries of the classical table of integrals by Gradshteyn and Ryzhik, the author observed that entry 3.248.5 was incorrect. This talk will discuss how was this discovered, the correct solution obtained this year by Arias de Reyna and the typo in the table, discovered by Petr Blaschke.
