Update on the “Some numbers” post

Idiots, updated. The EFF is helping with people who’ve been threatened by Texas Instruments over the publication of the TI calculator key. (Not me because I’m not in the US).

Honestly though, TI have either shot themselves in the foot and are now aiming for the other foot, or this is some sort of perverse “any news is good news” PR campaign.

Original posting, with some numbers in it.

Support the EFF.

Support the ORG (UK users).

Idiots

This ended up in my spam folder. Well done wordpress.com for correctly identifying worthless rubbish!

The actual URL that he is complaining about is “Some numbers”, which contains just that — numbers! With interesting mathematical relationships between the numbers. What a wonderful world we’ve made for ourselves where highly paid lawyers spam poor computer programmers over copying numbers. I have a degree in mathematics. I believe that entitles me to use numbers whenever I want.

For more information on why TI are interested in these numbers, see this news and this.
