I think you must be confusing this with something from another site; or your just misremembering what you thought you read and have't checked back to see your error.

  1. I didn't change anything. (Please ask tye to verify that I made no edits at all!)

    The only post in the entire thread that contains the phrase "sums of multiple powers of three"; is yours. (Or was Until I posted this response.)

  2. And I didn't mention 6 anywhere.

And with your parentheticals, it makes even less sense; since "6" isn't mention in either of your (mis) quotes; nor in the post to which you responded.

Quite where you dreamed that your saw something that needed your correction; I can only hazard a guess. (Good stuff was it?)

Why you then comeback and defend it with a bunch of made up crap; is just vintage ikegami.

    I didn't say you edited your node.

    Re^3: Can It Be Written In Base X With Only 1s And 0s: "All of them can be defined as the sums of multiples of powers of 3."
    Re^5: Can It Be Written In Base X With Only 1s And 0s: "These are all sums of multiple powers of three less than 3^11"

    So despite "not understanding" the subject, you fixed what the mistake I pointed out.

    The only post in the entire thread that contains the phrase "sums of multiple powers of three"; is yours.

    You said it twice in Re^5: Can It Be Written In Base X With Only 1s And 0s (once verbatim, and once with "3" instead of "three").

    And I didn't mention 6 anywhere.

    That's the point. It's not one of the numbers you listed, but it a sum of multiples of powers of 3, so either 6 should be on your list or the list isn't the list of "sums of multiples of powers of 3".

      the post to which I replied saying you made a mistake by saying "sums of multiple powers of three", and it contains that very phrase.

      No!. It doesn't!

        Fixed. I thought you were decrying saying the incorrect version; I didn't realize you were decrying having said the correct version.

      Back to your old games of multiple unattributed edits.

      The only place where the phrase "sums of multiple powers of three" (withe three or 3) appears IS IN YOUR POST, and my replies to it. It does not appear in my post.

      Go to the OP; C&P that phrase into the in-page search box; THE FIRST PLACE THAT PHRASE APPEARS IS IN YOUR POST.

      Now go away and lie down and come back when you are calm and sober.
