Why there is hard question to solve by computer? There is problems that never be solved by computer? Which?

Suppose you had never spammed us to death with meaningless questions.

Then the question "When are you going to stop spamming us to death with meaningless questions?"

would be unanswerable.

Spam is in the eye of the beholder.

When it is irritating to the reader, it is spam.

I ask it differenlty:
i have a computer with 1TB.
I have the program:
label1:
i:= 1 + i;
return to label1;
In what time it will be done with the fastest processor.
Alsom there is no split of the drive.

Done? It's a non-terminating algorithm. 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.

I have a theory that shaharhada is actually a graduate student's machine learning algorithm thesis project which is trying to learn as much mathematics as possible by posting forum questions.

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.
