> Kinda surprised nobody's pointed this out : Moore's Law posits a _doubling_ of computing power every 18 months. You've got it as a _quadrupling_; it's 2^25, not 4^25. You also have it as 25 quadruplings times nothing in particular, rather than 25 quadruplings starting from four days

Fair point - I should have paid more attention when scribbling on the beer mat ;)
