Thanks for that, Zelandakh. I enjoyed reading about Polly Nomial again, even if it did make me feel rather old - it must be 30 years since I last read the story of Polly Nomial and Curly Pi, and like all the best stories I think it has grown a bit in the telling....

There are two types of mathematicians: those who can count, and those who can't.

I thought there were three types of mathematicians, but then again, what do I know?

I do know there are 1 types of people: those who know binary, and those who don't.
