Birthday page for membersWe could have a birthday page for members. Love is the key to life #2 20111014 04:57:44
Re: Birthday page for membersthat seems like a nice idea! The limit operator is just an excuse for doing something you know you can't. “It's the subject that nobody knows anything about that we can all talk about!” ― Richard Feynman “Taking a new step, uttering a new word, is what people fear most.” ― Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Crime and Punishment #3 20111014 05:15:43
Re: Birthday page for membersThat is! I have a birthday coming up. 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. #4 20111014 06:58:10

Re: Birthday page for membersI am not sure what all this means. 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: Birthday page for membersI think of it like thisevery level of information I give out is a step closer to me. But, I am sure that if you searched through my posts you could find my birth date.

Re: Birthday page for members
How can we get them to do that? Seems impossible. 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. #18 20120620 04:21:45
Re: Birthday page for membersNobody will be made into that. Thus the use of "volunteer".

Re: Birthday page for membersI think it would be more,but you wouldn't be one of them.

Re: Birthday page for membersHmmmm. Who would believe it anyway? 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: Birthday page for membersI could add credibility to your DOB by including it in your YOB puzzle, Bobby! "The good news about computers is that they do what you tell them to do. The bad news is that they do what you tell them to do."  Ted Nelson #23 20120620 12:48:35

Somewhere in the multiverse I have solved it. In fact I did it five years before it was set! You cannot teach a man anything; you can only help him find it within himself..........Galileo Galilei #25 20120620 21:06:37
Re: Birthday page for membersNow, that's jolly interesting! It could very well explain the odd feeling I got when the person who solved my puzzle communicated their M solution to me. It seemed that they knew 'my' puzzle better than I did: that they might even be its original author, and that I, in this universe, am merely a subsequent author.
