23:14 jeffreykegler I'll explain Ron's joke for some readers who may not be into this stuff -- the Halting Problem might be called the basis of Theory of Computation.  You cannot determine, in general, if a program will halt.
23:15 jeffreykegler If I disproved it, I'd erase a vast proportion of the results in Theory of Computation, including one of my own about the parsing of Perl syntax being undecidable.
23:16 jeffreykegler To put it mildly, this is about as likely as my getting a Nobel Prize for Mathematics, which is pretty hard since there isn't one.
