The long-lost cousin's daughter would be a first cousin once removed and her kids would be a first cousin twice removed. This is actually pretty timely as I've been looking up some long-not-seen cousin and have been contemplating the same question. Without the simple grandparent rule, I had to wonder what the order of operations would be. Since my kids are first cousins once removed from my first cousin, whose kids are my first cousin's cousins once removed, are they first cousins twice removed [cousin(removed + removed)] or second cousins once removed [(cousin + cousin)removed] or second cousins twice removed (cousin + cousin)(removed + removed) The grandparent rule makes it all a lot easier.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
