Re: Ixquick
If everybody is jumping off a cliff, there must be a good reason to do it. 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 #52 20131107 05:00:09
Re: IxquickUnless gAr changed his signature since the last time I saw him, it never mentions jumping off any cliffs.
I could not disagree more. 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. #53 20131107 05:03:00
Re: IxquickI am talking about the quote from Buddha.

Re: IxquickBecause I feel the majority is almost always wrong! If you are "following the crowd," then you have become just that, a follower. Looks like the great men were leaders, not followers. 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: IxquickI think that it is a bad metaphor. If people were jumping off a cliff, it would almost certainly be because of some danger.

Re: IxquickPeople have been known to jump off things in response to no danger at all. Also, this has happened en masse. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: IxquickWhat are you going to do by being hidden from a search engine company? The ISP will see everything, so will the CBI, NSA, FBI. I have discovered a truly marvellous signature, which this margin is too narrow to contain. Fermat Give me a lever long enough and a fulcrum on which to place it, and I shall move the world.

Re: IxquickI suspect Mr A. is thinking along the lines of cryptography to deal with that. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: IxquickHTTPS will do it. If required, we should used options like the The Onion Router 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.' 'God exists because Mathematics is consistent, and the devil exists because we cannot prove it' 'Who are you to judge everything?' Alokananda #60 20131107 16:44:43
Re: Ixquickwell, search engines sell our information for there profit but this way they also get to know our preferences.For ex. each time we click on a link,the results we get the next time is somewhat based on that(if you notice it closely you will find it).Also now many search engines like Google use https which prevents our privacy a lot. Even in the adds that appear on various websites, you will find that if you click on one,the next time you open that website there will be adds on similar products.This is all based on the browserserver interaction.So that means we are nowhere safe as per perfect privacy is concerned!!!!! friendship is tan 90°. #61 20131107 16:53:19
Re: IxquickThey are watching, it is that simple. 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. #62 20131107 17:15:19
Re: Ixquickwell, whatever i knew i told. friendship is tan 90°. #63 20131107 17:17:45
Re: IxquickFirst we must get Agnishom to describe the Onion Router. 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. #65 20131107 18:02:25
Re: IxquickThen we will get him to describe the Onion Ring. 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. #66 20131107 23:14:47
Re: IxquickI cannot describe it. Neither can I guarantee that it works. I know nothing about those onions.

Re: IxquickThere used to be an expression that went like this, "that man knows his onions." 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. #68 20131108 00:53:30
Re: Ixquickand what did it mean? 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.' 'God exists because Mathematics is consistent, and the devil exists because we cannot prove it' 'Who are you to judge everything?' Alokananda #69 20131108 00:55:05
Re: IxquickIt meant that man is really smart. So you see we have a rich heritage of onion wisdom. 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. #70 20131108 01:04:16
Re: IxquickDo you know your onions? 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.' 'God exists because Mathematics is consistent, and the devil exists because we cannot prove it' 'Who are you to judge everything?' Alokananda #71 20131108 01:08:23
Re: IxquickI am not quite sure, pappym came up with the saying and he never did explain the true meaning. 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. #72 20131108 15:15:20
Re: Ixquickso we are moved from onion router to onion smartness!! coool.. friendship is tan 90°. #73 20131108 15:55:21
