Dr Anderson: 'it's that easy'

Haha... so he's basically just invented a new number spanning -inf to +inf.

Thats his 15 minutes of fame anyway!

"Imagine you're landing on an aeroplane and the automatic pilot's working," he suggests. "If it divides by zero and the computer stops working - you're in big trouble. If your heart pacemaker divides by zero, you're dead."
...and if your OEP divides by zero, you're p!ssed... ^^

BTW:

"Nullity"... ... will there be better protections ?

WTF ? Will there be better Olly-Plugins ? TEH Nullity-Plugin ?

Nullity = ORIGIN therfore:

100 * 100 / NULLITY (100) = 100

50 * 100 / NULLITY (50) = 100

122 * 56 / NULLITY (122) = 56

Theres a little theory of nullity I came up with in 30 seconds. Do I win a prize?

M\$ Calculator has no problems dividing by zero, it didn't go BSOD - now theres a suprise...

Lets see if Dr anderson can answer these three complicated questions..

1) how much are the two cent lollies?

2) What time is the 6 o'clock news on?

3) If I have 5 dollars in my pocket how much money do i have in my pocket?
