I've invented a number of algorithms, one, the Bullard Binary algorithm allows you to calculate the approximate value of 2 to the power of any large whole number, and I mean any BIG number, 40 digits, a hundred, a thousand digits. Learn how, it's really easy.

My attitude on success: "Shallow men believe in luck, strong men believe in cause and effect." Ralph Waldo Emerson.
Or, in poem form;
The Winds of Fate
One ship drives east and another drives west
With the selfsame winds that blow.
'Tis the set of the sails
And not the gales
Which tells us the way to go.
Like the winds of the sea are the ways of fate,
As we voyage along through life:
'Tis the set of the soul
That decides its goal,
And not the calm or the strife.
Ella Wheeler Wilcox
