in reply to Not a Number

This question seems to come round with the fall of the leaf. When I asked it last year I didn't realise that it was so interesting and complex. Now I know, though I admit part of me just wants to say, like Sir Roger de Coverley would if he'd had a Babbage Engine, "well come on, I mean to say dash it all, a thing's either a number or it's not, don't you know?"
