    Re: On potential error introduced by rounded values

    I had hoped to draw a line under my recent disagreement with Peter Fogg:
    but now Frank Reed has intervened (as he's perfectky entitled to do).
    
    He wrote-
    
    >A useful litmus test: if you find that you must begin a post with a 'non  mea
    >culpa' apology suggesting that someone else started it,  you're very likely
    >the one who is starting something.
    
    Frank offers us such nuggets of his homespun philosophy, and we should be
    appropriately grateful.
    
    I wrote-
    
    >"That was the matter I was addressing. I had read his
    >argument  carefully, and answered it carefully, but he hadn't expressed it
    >as he  intended."
    
    His reply was the dismissive-
    
    >Nah. Pretty much everything Peter Fogg wrote in this thread was right on  the
    >money AND STATED QUITE CLEARLY, too.
    
    Well, we weren't discussing "pretty much everything", we were discussing
    one particular phrase, of which I had failed to understand the intention
    because of the way it had been expressed. If Frank has relevant opinions to
    offer about that particular matter, they will indeed be welcome.
    
    George.
