Strange indeed,

I gues the forum by its very nature cant solve a problem as soon as we like because it requires some to first post the answer and also secondly it has to be the right answer.

Complex problems often have a simple solution. Which is wrong.

Don't expect the worst ...... it's much more dire than that !

William Occam (or Ockham) was an English philosopher who died in 1347. He believed that a problem should be stated in its basic and simplest terms, and that in science, the simplest theory that fits the facts of a problem is the one that should be selected.

The rule (known as Occam's razor) means that the simplest of two or more competing theories is preferable and that an explanation for unknown phenomena should first be attempted in terms of what is already known.

There's weirdness in the forum tonight.

I thought William of Ockham was a 14th century English logician and Franciscan friar ?
