Fortune: 201 - 210 of 2182 from Freebsd Fortunes 3

Freebsd Fortunes 3:  201 of 2182

At about 2500 A.D., humankind discovers a computer problem that *must* be
solved.  The only difficulty is that the problem is NP complete and will
take thousands of years even with the latest optical biologic technology

In great dismay, one of the C.S. people tells her husband about it.  There
is only one solution, he says.  Remember physics 103, Modern Physics, general
relativity and all.  She replies, "What does that have to do with solving
a computer problem?"
        "Remember the twin paradox?"
        After a few minutes, she says, "I could put the computer on a very
fast machine and the computer would have just a few minutes to calculate but
that is the exact opposite of what we want... Of course!  Leave the
computer here, and accelerate the earth!"
        The problem was so important that they did exactly that.  When
the earth came back, they were presented with the answer:

        IEH032 Error in JOB Control Card.

than blinkers it.
                -- G.L. Glegg, "The Design of Design"

At once it struck me what quality went to form a man of achievement,
especially in literature, and which Shakespeare possessed so enormously

in uncertainties, mysteries, doubts, without any irritable reaching
after fact and reason.
                -- John Keats
