See you later and have a good day!

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.
A number by itself is useful, but it is far more useful to know how accurate or certain that number is.

### Re: weight lifting miracle today

Next day!! Guess what I tested myself to write down all the elemental weights
from 1 to 42, 44 to 60, 62 to 83 and 92, and some have two min and max numbers.
I got 58 correct to all the digits and 34 wrong in some of the digits at the end of the number.
So I have a lot of work left to do, but I now know exactly which ones to work on,
they are marked up in red in booklet of mine...  So I get a D- for a score I guess.
There are about 700 digits to remember though, so I'm doing alright.

Thanks b, did you hear about the wikipedia protest with English Wikipdia shutdown starting at midnight Eastern Standard Time tonight for all of tomorrow?   Apparently there are 2 bills in our USA that are trying to do some good by getting rid of copyright infringements and other fraud on the internet, however, many believe the implications are not good and could threaten the livelyhood and openness of the internet.  Opposers include Google, Yahoo, Mozilla, Wikimedia, and many others.  So I guess tomorrow I'll be reading a little francais on Wikipedia instead!!  Hope the bills don't pass...  One bill can put someone in jail for 6 years for something.

Hi John E. Franklin;

No, I have not heard it. Do you have a link? We already have too many laws, none of which are being enforced anyway. They put computer criminals in solitary confinement for 5 years and then they let murderers out the same day. I think Shakespeare was right.

What did Shakespeare say about ordinateurs (computers) and computer programmers (logiciennes?)?

It refers to a particularly mean young woman.

It has a lot of pretty modern ideas for a story written 500 years ago.
