Re: 1406: "Universal Converter Box"

If it can't convert 15KHz RGB (CoCo 3, MSX, Atari ST etc) to a modern video standard, I ain't buying. Also, where's the 74,833 different types of DIN and mini-DIN pinouts needed for all flavors of classic computers?

Interesting real number I generated

Start with 1, multiply with 1.5 rounding up to the nearest integer when non-integer. The resulting series is 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 12, 18, 27, 41, 62, 93, 140... Now take the parities of the numbers and construct a real number in binary starting with 0. That gives us 0.10110001101001101... =~ 0.3878982756....
