You've probably all heard the aphorism (or references to it) about giving an infinite number of monkeys an infinite number of typewriters, right? Well now some researchers have finally taken a step down that path. Give six monkeys one computer Surprised

I guess it depends on your point of view, Daniel, although it seems to be there now, doesn't it? Cool

Personally I thought it might be more interesting than that, and I noticed that it got a mention on the BBC News last night as well. But if noone else at 4WH thinks it interesting, then I suppose it might as well be in the Trash. Neutral

verto, Chit Chat is not "trash", it's just the place for topics not related to web design Smile. It isn't a degredation to have your topic moved to chit chat Wink
