Avatar 11:39am glenn:

hey, can anybody remember off of the top of their head the formula for determining how many different combinations of numbers there are? for example, if i have a combination lock that has numbers from 1 - 40 on the dial, and i need to dial in three numbers to open the lock.

Dunno Glenn...think it involve a factorial!

re: bank interest rates
yes -- savings and checking accounts next to nil, but it's also a crazy time to get a 30-year, fixed mortgage for 3.5%. Probably won't see that again in our lifetimes.

I don't care who does this song Under My Thumb SUCKS
Avatar #1 Hit Supporter Marathon 2021 Swag For Life Member 11:42am Mike Sin:

@ glenn -- 40x40x40 if the numbers are able to repeat?
Avatar #1 Hit Supporter Marathon 2021 Swag For Life Member 11:43am G:

it's kind of a creepy lyric. rolling stones trying maybe too hard to be transgressive. roe does well with it, though
Avatar #1 Hit Supporter Marathon 2021 Swag For Life Member 11:43am G:

that's a big number. what is the practical advantage of knowing it in this case?
Avatar 11:46am glenn:

i'm just curious.
Avatar 11:51am Sem Chumbo:

@Glenn: this 1.usa.gov... seems to confirm what Mr. Sin has said.
Avatar 11:56am glenn:

hmmm. i guess it is that simple.
  11:56am Peter:

I once saw an inteview Paul Schaffer did with Keith Richards.. He asked him how he could put so many different hooks/riffs in a song like "19th Nervous Breakdown". Richards said he was afraid he'd forget them if he didn't use them.

Completely enjoyed that interview with Tommy Roe. Another great one for the archives.
Avatar 12:29pm Michael Shelley:

Thanks Mike!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:33pm Stevel:

Thanks for the George Jones. Its amazing.

Saw him on his last tour. He was obviously dying. Didn't perform badly, but not well. Still, maybe he made some bucks for family and band. That's OK with me.
