Woohoo!  10th post in the new forum.

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.

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

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.

Depends on what you are coding:

A person I know wrote this

10 Print "My cats name is Minnie Mouse"

20 Goto 10
