A question for bobbym from KarneyI really appreciate your help. What is your math background? It seems like you are quite a math person. #2 20090528 11:21:39
Re: A question for bobbym from KarneyWhoa! Whoa! Whoa! Stop right there. Glad to help you, but ease up on the praise, it's unjustified. Loved math, until I ran into a certain professor. Walked out on her and math! Went into computers so I wouldn't have to do any more math. Found out I needed more math than ever before. Lots of smarter people right here in this forum.

All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #3 20130605 01:38:28
Re: A question for bobbym from KarneyHow did this professor change your life? 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'

Re: A question for bobbym from KarneyShe didn't. As you already know only I can change my life. People can try to influence you by deceit or brutality. In her case it was brutality.

Re: A question for bobbym from KarneyThat's just modesty. And I highly doubt there are people on this forum more intelligent  perhaps MIF. But him too not in terms of experience.

Re: A question for bobbym from KarneyI know that modesty bothers people. It makes them feel uncomfortable so let me amend it:
I could make up a list of those people but if I missed some through carelessness or because I do not think so, they would be mightily annoyed. In mathematics, you don't understand things.

Re: A question for bobbym from KarneyWhy should a comment on an Administrator bother established members?
I was actually searching through the forum on your username to get the intergalactic bobbym day thread. 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun.

Re: A question for bobbym from Karney
I was not an administrator back then. I had only been here a month.
You remembered that? 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. #9 20130605 22:43:10

Re: A question for bobbym from KarneyAh, true. You became a Mod exactly half a year later.

Re: A question for bobbym from KarneyIf I had seven or so clones put in storage for me when I was twenty or so, would also be good.
That is a long shot don't you think? 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. #23 20130605 23:52:35
Re: A question for bobbym from KarneyOf course not. I may be willing bet you will complete a century right after 1 million posts.

Re: A question for bobbym from KarneyThere is a guy on a Chinese forum that has a couple of million members that has over 1 million posts. I think he gets a couple of hundred a day, average!
