Hi Moneybags just thought I'd post some links to a site that allows you to explore the mandelbrot set. For anyone wondering Moneybags asked about my avatar in the INL thread...
The image is generated from a mathematical formula, and exhibits self similar properties, which means that certain things repeat over and over but are never quite the same... It's quite facinating IMO, you can zoom in to an area of the picture and see a new picture, and just keep on zooming and zooming, hours of entertainment
The first link goes to the top (starting) level which shows the whole mandelbrot set. I put it on grey as I'm colour blind....
at the top level
On this next one try clicking the zebra button for a completely differnt view of the same thing
after zooming in a few times
edit: if it takes too long just change the size down from 800X800 to 512X512 or smaller
