Hi bobbym,

Okay, I haven't heard of the term "bleeding memory" before, so I asked.

Here, I'm not sure whether it's a bug or not. Can it be the OS which is not releasing, on the assumption that data may be required again?

Hi gAr;

That too, all operating systems are betas at best. They have bugs too.

Hi gAr,

Thanks for the link! I noticed the Buddha's quote in your signature.

Have you seen the Buddhabrot? It's amazing!

Hi bobbym,

Okay.

Hi benice,

You're welcome!

Yeah, I saw that too, nice one!

Have you seen the example here, using numpy and matplotlib : http://mentat.za.net/numpy/intro/intro.html

I've often wondered it fractals would be useful for plotting stability of feedback systems.

Hopefully I'll re-learn enough in the near future to try to see.

I think I still have an old fractal program around that I used to run on a PC clone. I would start the program before bed and check it in the morning!

I remember those programs and those machines. Things sure have changed!

I used it too. Thought I found something better but do not remember where.
