Note:These pages make extensive use of the latest XHTML and CSS Standards. They ought to look great in any standards-compliant modern browser. Unfortunately, they will probably look horrible in older browsers, like Netscape 4.x and IE 4.x. Moreover, many posts use MathML, which is, currently only supported in Mozilla. My best suggestion (and you will thank me when surfing an ever-increasing number of sites on the web which have been crafted to use the new standards) is to upgrade to the latest version of your browser. If that's not possible, consider moving to the Standards-compliant and open-source Mozilla browser.

α to Ω

There’s been much fanfare about the debut of Wolfram α. While it’s impressive, on a technical level, I think Harvey Ω yields consistently more useful search results.

To each his own.

alpha to omega

Harvey|Omega answers binary questions much more intuitively than other computational knowlege engines answer questions about binary.
