Thanks Jose. I sort of got the same impression myself almost
immediately, but I always believe in giving everyone the benefit of
the doubt until I learn otherwise, so in the extremely unlikely event
that Mr. Wanless has an interesting algorithm I will be happy to give
him enough rope..., er, I mean I will be happy to give him the
opportunity to present his algorithm for review if he wishes to. ;-)
I used to peruse some of the math groups on Usenet, but there are so
many crackpots on Usenet and they put so much garbage on the forums
that it makes Usenet almost useless. :-( One guy in particular is a
religious fanatic who continuously posts lengthy messages that must
have taken him hours to compose that attempt to prove the existence
of "God" by using numbers (and I mean numbers, NOT mathematics). His
posts are essentially meaningless ramblings and I cannot imagine what
gratification he gets from his abuse of the Usenet forums.
You're right though Jose, it's been ages since I've posted on this
forum and I should have read the last few days worth of messages
before posting in order to get a feeling for who's who here.
