0**0 in maths is not defined, but it would be nice if it was 1.
I think Perl contributes to this.

    Every math teacher and such I've run across in the past 7 or 8 years at least has told me that 0^0 was eventually defined as equal to 1.

[Eily]: if there's a pun in there I didn't get it :x
[marto]: <tr class="even-row item-004 auth-221725"> is there, but no content seemingly
[Corion]: Hmm - these nodes are usually cached, so something doing the cache update broke, I guess
[Eily]: I do see a content, the n5
[marto]: 5 is an Odd_number
[Corion]: That could fix itself within the next 24 hours :)
[marto]: we should blame LanX
[marto]: purely because he isn't here :P
[Eily]: marto oh ok, since normally it would have been 1, which is odd as well, I didn't think this was what you were refering to
[Eily]: what? Does that mean we can't blame LanX when he's there?
