    1 rainbow = infinity - 1

      Yeah, something like that. The Red + Violet thing reduces it from infinity, in my opinion, to something near infinity. Maybe it's INF-1, or even less, but not infinity.


      While I ask a lot of Win32 questions, I hate Windows with a passion. That's the problem with writing a cross-platform program. I'm a Linux user myself. I wish more people were.

        INFINITY-1 is not less than INFINITY.

    220 (C-class) - close to Infinity

    350 (SLK) - greater than Infinity
