Is he a member here? What is his favorite color?


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.

Interesting question.

I want to keep a database of 185146 people and their favorite colors.

Re: Dfq did I just read?

I typed in those lines and started evaluating. My machine became unresponsive and I had to reboot with the MagicSysReq combination. (I am not joking)

Besides from the crash which was entirely linux's fault, have you looked at how it works?

Does the code run on your machine?

Yes, I have.

Yes, it does but it was only meant as a joke. The program does not have much of a point.
