### Re: What do you think?

How much of your CAS have you finished?

### Re: What do you think?

We finished lots of the algebra and calculus, multiprecision artihmetic and was starting to work on plotting then...

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: What do you think?

I came across this program called Mupad 1.4 so I dowloaded it and installed it. When I ran it I could not believe what I was seeing!

Well, still, it is no reason to stop coding your own CAS...

### Re: What do you think?

I was coding it to do mathematics. Not to code. We were already the best in the world. Whereas an ordinary programmer can turn out 100 lines of code per day, we could turn out 500 lines per day. Mupad 1.4 was an amazing math package already fully developed, with more features than mathematica or maple. And better graphics.

I went back to doing math again, I was happy!

### Re: What do you think?

I am lucky that my life has been easy to analyze. I can see the "The Frenchman's," causality in almost every decision I made. It was easy for me to know what I did that was wrong. Other people, I am told never figure their own existence out at all. They can not even figure why they are alive. I mean not even a clue...

So, you have the brainpower of ten thousand legs? That is an amazing result. Just, be careful! You don't want people to find that out!
