Re: Old Threads

Hi mathgogocart;

Which ones do you have in mind?


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.

Hi mathgogocart;

That would be up to MIF.

Re: Old Threads

Some old threads are really good ... they have solutions that people search for.

It may not be that much faster either. Say a database has to search an index: it might take 30 steps to find an entry. If you HALVE the size of the index then it might take 29 steps and who would notice? (There are other issues, such as memory and disk, but you see what I mean).
