Then the question "When are you going to stop spamming us to death with meaningless questions?" would be unanswerable. Last edited by romsek; December 7th, 2017 at 04:12 PM.

It'll eventually crash when the computer can no longer store the value of the variable, i, but when that happens depends on many things.

a few months back there was another poster asking one unrelated question after another and we speculated something similar.

I think this one is probably a bored and lonely 10 or so year old who's found this wonderful way to make adults pay attention to him/her.
