    Nash equilibrium bothers people too, but I don't threaten to talk about it. Even though I could, in detail. And I'd rather enjoy it.

    I did a small function to decode the sequence in the BG building this afternoon, but it's just too tedeous and doesn't do UTF-8. Blah, I'll leave my brain to Larry the Great, I'm sure he'll do a brilliant job in teaching it everything it needs to know about ML.
    There are two sets of codes in the lab, one lot on the research side and one on main street floor. One says something boring like "Computer Laboratory" or "William Gates Building" or something drear. The other is the original instruction set of the EDSAC and wouldn't make any sense to decode it. I forget which is which, but I doubt you'd need the 8th bit for the message, I'm sure normal 7-bit ascii would do (and ML does do that).

    I just remembered something... There's a girl living my staircase with initials A.V.G. which makes her a well known free antivirus software. Wonder if she actually can resist virus infection without any updates :rolleyes: ... Em... I wonder.

    I got briefly taught about Nash equilibrium in our Economics and Law course, it seemed interesting. But the games we were doing were rather trivial, and some had dominant strategies anyway. (though they may have been the single iteration games).
    I think I'd like to read up more on game and auction theories when I have some time, but an entire degree in them seems like overkill.

    It says "Computer Laboratory " followed by a 3-byte "-" then " AD 2001 " and then another 3-byte "-" and then " " and then a 3-byte smiley.

    Ross "Varsity's most powerful person in Cambridge" Anderson will, he might also take you for Software Engineering I.

    Larry will probably only take you for Software Engineering II this year, and Logic and Proof next year.
