A propos: in Hamburg you are protestants or cattolics? I know, southern
Germany is cattolic, but what about prussian nord-east ?

I released a this moment a stable 7r6, sorry!
What means stable? I know the sense in Physics: stable is the point
of lagrangian minimum in the potential energy U(x). I, normally, find
stable point taking first derivate and solving the equation:

                U'(x)=dU(x)/dx = 0

A stationary point will be called "stable" if it is a minimum, i.e.
the second derivative U''(x) is positive. If, viceversa, it is a maximum,
it is "unstable". There is also "metastable" point, in the stable one
is in a small hollow, as in the center point in a 'M' character.

Mmmm ... maybe 7r6 is a metastable release: a little bug and he will
bringh in unstable state.

Oh Tannembaum!


I'd like to conclude with a positive statement, but I can't 
remember any. Would two negative ones do?       -- Woody Allen
