Koen, that really gives the answer away, you don't even need Google Ermm


On two occasions I have been asked, "Pray, Mr. Babbage, if you put into the machine wrong figures, will the right answers come out?" ... I am not able rightly to apprehend the kind of confusion of ideas that could provoke such a question.

There's a Discuss link under the question on the homepage. It brings you straight to the discussion without having to answer the question. It may have been used in the past as a possible source of clues... Although not necessarily to the answer I hasten to add, more the interpretation of the question.

It certainly has its uses but I'm always careful what I post because unscrupulous types could use it to bypass the hours of research that I may have been through. As I said, if the meaning of the question isn't always clear it's a useful place to get hints as to what the intention may have been. To be honest I don't think a lot of people know it's there though.
