comment What algorithm is used by computers to calculate logarithms?
@Aryabhata: If I google "What algorithm is used by computers to calculate logarithms", then the first answer shown is this StackExchange webpage, and the first answer is yours with the broken links. That is not very useful.

@Aryabhata: The links in your post are no longer active. Regarding your statement "this pdf you can find by a google search of the title," what title are you referring to? I would like to search for whatever that is.

comment Probability of server cluster failure
Thank you. Now that I look further, I find it kind of extraordinary that $Pr$(0 servers fail) = $0.00592$. That seems really low when each of the servers seems pretty stable with each having probability $0.95$ of failing. But the math proves it, I guess.

comment Probability of server cluster failure
Thanks. So when I was earlier computing that $Pr$(2 server fails) = $0.95^{98}×0.05^2$, does that imply that I was computing the probability that the first 98 servers were good and the last 2 servers failed?

Thanks. Can you point me to any resources on how to create a line or hyperplane through the "B" point that does not pass through any "A" point?
