Re: Perpetual calendarHi;
That is the right idea. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #27 20110708 03:04:11
Re: Perpetual calendarHad I seen the Sakamoto's algorithm earlier, it would have saved a day of mine! "Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who said it, no matter if I have said it, unless it agrees with your own reason and your own common sense"  Buddha? "Data! Data! Data!" he cried impatiently. "I can't make bricks without clay." #28 20110708 03:07:53
Re: Perpetual calendarYou can never understand something until you do it yourself. Discover it for yourself. That is better than reading about it. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #29 20110708 03:10:42
Re: Perpetual calendarYes, that's true. "Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who said it, no matter if I have said it, unless it agrees with your own reason and your own common sense"  Buddha? "Data! Data! Data!" he cried impatiently. "I can't make bricks without clay." #30 20110708 03:16:09
Re: Perpetual calendarWere you trying to program it? In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #31 20110708 03:19:41
Re: Perpetual calendarI had already programmed it by the time I posted the formula. "Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who said it, no matter if I have said it, unless it agrees with your own reason and your own common sense"  Buddha? "Data! Data! Data!" he cried impatiently. "I can't make bricks without clay." #32 20110708 03:22:29
Re: Perpetual calendarI meant that is what led you to work on it? In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it.

Re: Perpetual calendarActually, I received a hoax mail, like this one: http://www.snopes.com/inboxer/trivia/fivedays.asp "Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who said it, no matter if I have said it, unless it agrees with your own reason and your own common sense"  Buddha? "Data! Data! Data!" he cried impatiently. "I can't make bricks without clay." #34 20110708 03:34:50
Re: Perpetual calendarVery good! Nothing like a bogus claim to make people check it out. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #35 20110708 03:41:17

Re: Perpetual calendarWell, it's the same all over the world I guess!

The leap year adjustments are made because the time for the Earth to orbit the Sun is not an exact number of days. You cannot teach a man anything; you can only help him find it within himself..........Galileo Galilei #44 20110708 04:41:32

Re: Perpetual calendarYes, it is important to remember that modern astronomy like all the other sciences are just approximations. Calculations far into the future are impossible due to sensitivity to initial conditions. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #47 20111216 15:01:27
Re: Perpetual calendarIf there were no resistance to motion, perpetual motion would work. However; It would still be useless for as soon as you want that motion to work for you, you would be causing resistance and the motion would diminish and stop. #48 20111216 15:16:28
