Re: DOB in pi puzzleI downloaded win.zip version 0.942 some time back, and the link was probably like your first one, but with the old numbers.

Re: DOB in pi puzzleHi; 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. #28 20120316 04:49:47
Re: DOB in pi puzzleYou should also click on the "Documentation (WIKI)" link on the QB64 page and download the "Offline Reference" Wiki docs.

Re: DOB in pi puzzleOkay, thanks. Looks like they have beefed it up considerably. 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. #30 20120316 04:57:16
Re: DOB in pi puzzleI like the fact that QB64 has thriving, current forum support and frequent updates. "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 #31 20120316 05:01:12
Re: DOB in pi puzzleI had no idea it was still active and developing. The last I used was QB 7.1, that was made a long, long, time ago. I thought the language was dead. 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: DOB in pi puzzleI guess that version came out before my YOB. "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 #33 20120316 05:07:48
Re: DOB in pi puzzleIt came out about 1991, I think. See you later and sleep well. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: DOB in pi puzzle
Just a reminder. 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 #35 20120429 12:00:34
Re: DOB in pi puzzleFor what is that a reminder? 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. #36 20120429 12:02:05
Re: DOB in pi puzzleFor phro. Read the hidden text.

Re: DOB in pi puzzleYou mean phrontister? If I remember there were two parts of the problem. The first one I did okay. The second part I wanted a neat mathematical method for. I never found one...

Re: DOB in pi puzzleNo,he wanted to do something when he has more tine,but said he would probably forget by then. I just reminded him,so he can do what he wanted if he still does and if he has time.

Re: DOB in pi puzzleHe wanted to know how to do it in M. I remember offering to teach him how. We just never got around to it. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: DOB in pi puzzleI am just trying to remind him. Tge rest is up to him.

Re: DOB in pi puzzleI know, I am just talking about it. Learning M is a little scary. 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. #42 20120429 12:38:17
Re: DOB in pi puzzleM has pretty strict rules. Everything is with cap letters and square brackets.

Re: DOB in pi puzzleThey do not give the usual 30 days. 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: DOB in pi puzzleIt is 15 days. Too little if you ask me!
