I was supposed to be doing AxKit stuff tonight, but I've gotten engrossed in Horizon on BBC2, about the famous Archimedes manuscript. Apparently he used an early form of calculus to discover the volume of a sphere (by dividing it into infinite circles). Calculus wasn't discovered until 1800 years later. Imagine what a world we'd live in today if he hadn't been killed by the Romans and instead his work had continued. Boggling.
