Hi Agnishom;

Busy? What do you mean?

Are you alright?

Nope and I do not want to be.

But if you are thinking that I am preparing to answer the Riddle of Steel, and if I do not know the answer, Crom will cast me out of Valhalla and laugh at me...

I am not ready.

Something from a movie that are taken from a bunch of stories. I meant I am not dying.

You do not have to be sorry, you did nothing to offend anybody.

That is a very touching thing to talk about. The other day, Alokananda told us that we are lucky to have met you.

On another thread, you said that whether one is ok or not is a matter of opinion.

Can I meet him?

That would be recursion.

Then I will decline to meet him, I do not like recursion.

Do you dislike recursion because most people like recursion?

It is overused in programming, I think and bragged about too much. You always can make do with other solutions and they will probably be quicker and/or use less memory.

It is very useful in the study of algorithms because it is easier to compute the running time of the algorithm.
