Re: Is this cool with you?

I am afraid it is too high.

so that i do not post for nothing.

Why do you feel that is posting for nothing? A wrong answer is more valuable than 5 right answers!


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

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.

Hi bobbym

Meant to say: What does that have to do with anything?

I'm using swype keyboard on my phone so I often make mistakes.

Re: Is this cool with you?

Most problems will be too tough for you and for everybody else too. They are either trivial or nearly impossible. Working on them is good mental exercise. This is more important than the solution.

There is a new thread called "Bafflers." They will be easier. As a matter of fact, there is one there solved by both phrontister and gAr.

Where do you find your problems? I don't mean the personality problems, but mathematical problems.

They are mostly made up by me for me. I work on many problems per day. I only get a small number of them. The ones I think are interesting and challenging I post.

Re: Is this cool with you?

Some come from other forums. Some are from books. All are modified to illustrate a principle better.

There are other forums. I am a member of several of them. Some I just lurk on.

I wished they were. Then I could go and get a lobotomy and not remember them anymore. Unfortunately, they do exist and are stocked with nasty moderators who hate anyone named bobbym.

Re: Is this cool with you?

bobbym has been called many things. No one ever called him mighty when comparing him to his competitors. Maybe if he ever gets dropped near a hill of Liliputians the term mighty will then apply.

No, the mighty bobbym is mighty even now.He has many followers, though he's point like Yoda judging from his former avatar.

Phrontister is wary of me. He knows that I have an anti-Australia bomb. He probably has some anti-vegas bomb.

Hi bobbym

Why do you have an anti-Australian bomb?
