That was an interesting point about prediction but if we had two people on opposite sides of the universe predicting probabilities, results of a defined algorithm or any derived information then you wouldn't have to transfer information at all. The original topic was transmitting information faster than C. 1+1=2, you don't actually have to send the "2", the other person knows it's 2 before the "sent answer 2" arrives 300 million years later.

We support a small subset of HTML, namely these tags:

  • ul
  • li
  • dl
  • dt

"ecode" can be used for code snippets, for example:
