I can read it in reverse: "Every new joke makes a born a newborn". So as long as I see the posted problems as new problems, I think I "entitled" to use the phrase "newbie approach". /Not counting that with every found solution - hopefully - some new neurons were created in my brain, that again makes me a "newbie" :)/ On the other side I am using Mathematica just in the last two years and that is a miniscule time compared to other contributors of this list. Last, when my analysis professor - Dr. Zoltán Daróczy - kicked me out from an exam where he asked me about Lipót Fejér's proof and I told him Weierstrass second proof....., I knew immediately that I will be a newbie at any time when it comes to mathematics :) János -------- "At a risk of being called sexist, ageist and French, if you put multimedia, a leather skirt and lipstick on a grandmother and take her to a night club, she's still not going to get lucky." -- Jean Louis Gassee (of Be) on Windows 2000 being "multimedia."
