- "On October 5, 2001, at the Technische Universität münchen, donald knuth presented a lecture entitled
"Question: You have been writing checks to people who point out errors in your books. I have never heard of anyone cashing these checks. Do you know how much money you would be out of, if everyone suddenly cashed the checks?
Knuth: There's one man who lives near Frankfurt who would probably have more than <,000 if he cashed all the checks I've sent him. There's a man in Los Gatos, California, whom I've never met, who cashes a check for http.56 about once a month, and that's been going on for some years now. Altogether I've written more than 2,000 checks over the years, and the average amount exceeds $8.00 per check. Even if everybody cashed their checks, it would still be more than worth it to me to know that my books are getting better."
- es gibt offensichtlich einige (wenige) konstanten in meinem leben - z.b. das sitzen in technikräumen von museen - heut das mak - das technikkamerl is eher klein, aber es gibt sogar tische und hocker - und eine wand weiter steht die frankfurter kueche (http://www.hta-be.bfh.ch/…) - SEHR unterhaltsam wie sich menschen gegenseitig dieses heiligtum erklaeren
