It is true that Tzatziki, containing a great deal of garlic, may add to the effect of a hangover, when combined with alcohol. :)

C0 = 1, Cn + 1 = (4n + 2)Cn / (n + 2).
How about this recursion above. :)

MINT = Mint Includes Nothing Tastless!
MINT = Mint Is Not Tedious!
MINT = Mint Implements New Technology! :D

...How about a program that shows Recursion?!

Code: Select all
:ClrHome
:0→A
:.3→B
:.7→F
:Lbl 6
:Disp "BUZZ FOR?-(0 NOT"
:Input "T0 BUZZ):",C
:Disp "FIZZ FOR?-(0 NOT"
:Input "TO FIZZ):",D
:If (C<0)+(C>9)+(D<0)+(D>9)>0
:Goto 6
:ClrHome
:If C≠0
:Disp "B FOR BUZZ"
:If D≠0
:Disp "F FOR FIZZ"
:Disp "START COUNTING","GO!"
:Lbl 1
:A+1→A
:Input E
:0→G
:If C=0
:Goto 3
:If A/C=int (A/C)
:B→G
:A/10→H
:Lbl 2
:If fPart H=C/10
:B→G
:iPart H→I
:If I=0
:Goto 3
:I/10→H
:Goto 2
:Lbl 3
:0→H
:If D=0
:Goto 5
:If A/D=int (A/D)
:F→H
:A/10→I
:Lbl 4
:If fPart I=D/10
:F→H
:iPart I→J
:If J=0
:Goto 5
:J/10→I
:Goto 4
:Lbl 5
:A→I
:If G=B
:G→I
:If H=F
:H→I
:If GH=BF
:GH→I
:If I=E
:Goto 1
:Disp "WRONG!","YOU LOSE!"
:Stop

RedJak ,
All is fine but the code is a little too complicated for newbies to follow. :)

npap, you just gave me the recipe for driving spirits away, remember?

More garlic.


Now, just to be on the safe side, we might suggest Scorp to have some too...
I don't have a solution, but I do admire the problem.

Good morning Scorp,
It's just another peculiar, recursive anagram. But NAMMO means: Linux is not NAMMO: Not Another Mysterious, Mad OS

BTW, I have Personalized Google and I have, among other topics, the Google Note Book. I found the following message which I didn't put there. How could it have been written there. :) By Whom? Could somebody have access to my desktop? :)

Hey, that fellow seems to know what he's talking about. He was spot on in his review of OpenSUSE. Do you suppose, with a little prodding, he would do a review of Mint?? :lol: :lol: :lol:

A good idea Ken,
But I'm afraid he would be partial. :)

A review on one's own work might be a little hard to do.

Poetic License gives you the opportunity to look less subjective.
All writers use a pseudonym (see, I know some Greek too :) )
Kadiddlehopper is a very good American name.
