Good News!

I was about to implement the FastBigNumber when I found another codeplex project by Scott Garland that already implemented it exactly as I wanted. Scott was also kind enough to allow me to incorperate his work into this project! Thanks Scott.

The FastBigNumber uses the simple idea that you don't need to store your number in base 10 (like the StdBigNumber) but instead you can save it in the native base of the computer such as 2^32. This simple adjustment makes all the computation alot faster but makes presenting the number alot slower. The latest Commit to the SVN contains the FastBigNumber but it still does not pass the NUnit tests against the StdBigNumber (throws exception).

Once I fully incorperate this new number type I will probably release a new Beta.

Good Night.
Boris.

I don't think anyone reads these posts but....

I just checked in some changes to the FastBigNumber to make it compliant with the framework.
There is still some work to be done but in most part it works.
The missing things are completeness issues which I will resolve later on.
