<sigh> Looks like I missed it too, Jan, jm ... I read the problem as the one I assumed Brian meant (sum of (1/2)^n instead of what he actually wrote (1/n).

As a matter of >fact, the series 1/n does not have a finite sum. ------------------------------------"Never tell me the odds!"--- Ray Olszewski -- Han Solo Palo Alto, CA ray@comarre.com ----------------------------------------------------------------
