Re: rounding errors

Thanx alot to all of you,

  this discussion has been very interesting and fruitful.
  I had completely forgotten about human vs computer predjudice
  regarding bases.
  And, to add insult to injury, I forgot my own teaching that
  "a computer is a dumb device. It does what you tell it, not 
  what you expect it to do". 

  Hm, just shows that one shouldn't spent 8h in a row at the 
  computer and then skip a nights sleep...

  Special thanks to JD and Liam for the links, they make an 
  interesting reading, and William: should have thought of 
  looking at the binary and hex representation myself...
