Well, yes. I figured from context that the obvious implication was
there:
If *you* can write an algorithm to calculate bits of Omega, then so can
I.
The assumption was that he had a deterministic computer calculating
Omega somehow, yet that I couldn't do the same calculation. Of course,
if he can't calculate bits of Omega, then Omega is a pretty poor random
number generator, as you've been saying. :-)
