i wasnt trying to exclude ones that arent fast enough. i really dont care about the issue personally, but judging by the few of you who are posting, you must have some personal stake in this. why the attitude? did i step on someones toes in my first post? you could just kindly correct my terminology if you wanted.
What's irritating people is that you obviously don't know what you're talking about and even after it's been pointed out that you're wrong, you carry on as if you've been right all along.

Here, let me use an analogy, maybe this will help you see what's going on.

Just because you might mean something different than everybody else when you use the word "flat" doesn't mean that it's an acceptable thing for you to say that "the earth is flat" on a scientific forum, and then for you to act surprised when everybody jumps in to tell you that it's wrong.

Saying that "the earth is flat" is just as ridiculous a thing to say as "there are no algorithms which generate prime numbers."
