in thread Big O notation

You could use a graphing calculator to show that's probably not true. n^2 log(n) will grow faster than log(n), as will n^2, so surely O(log(n)) can't be an upper bound for something that has n^2 log(n) in it. Maybe it was supposed to be n^(2 * log(n)) ... can't really tell. Probably homework anyway.

update: lol, figured

LanX which means I can finally organize YAPC Asia in Sharm el Sheikh ;-)
[robby_dobby]: I attended a couple conferences (both in India). Left me with a renewed enthusiasm to do more, only to see it disappear in a few days!
[LanX]: Then come to YAPC EU in Amsterdam ...
[robby_dobby]: LanX: But that's in Africa! More like YAPC::Africa
choroba fears Amsterdam might fill him with enthusiasm to do nothing
[robby_dobby]: Uff, too expensive :-(
[LanX]: ... I found YAPC EU more entertaining (and international )than YAPC NA
[robby_dobby]: What's the site for YAPC::EU?
