Woohoo! 10th post in the new forum.

"In the real world, this would be a problem. But in mathematics, we can just define a place where this problem doesn't exist. So we'll go ahead and do that now..."

YEAH! We have a compy sci forum now!

and many thanks for taking my suggestion!

Woohoo! 10th post in the new forum.

I was confused there for juuuust a sec. Lol!

100th post!!

Well we need some good starter posts. How bout it, Ricky? What should be first?

I was just thinking, i mentioned earlier some posts could be moved here. Like Luca's physics engine (if he doesn't mind) maybe the Tower of Hanoi and Lower Bound proofs, etc. Just whatever applies.

I think you already did.

**I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.**

**A logarithm is just a misspelled algorithm.** Good one this.

"What is the square root of 2? 1.4141592653589793238" Seriously, I thought it was that. Too round?

When Al Gore goes jogging his pace is called an algorithm. And if he runs across fallen tree trunks

then it is also a ... But it is difficult for him if the logs don't line up nicely. So maybe an algorithm

can be a missfelled logarithm, eh mikau?

Writing "pretty" math (two dimensional) is easier to read and grasp than LaTex (one dimensional).

LaTex is like painting on many strips of paper and then stacking them to see what picture they make.
