Show me the point at which it changes, and evaluates to 1.
I know, it's infinitely far away, and it can never be reached, but if you

I would have a link to FINDU here in my signature line, but due to the
inability of sysadmins at TELOCITY to differentiate a signature line from
the text of an email, I am forbidden to have it.
