when I run the Bin4ry Root with Restore I get this error in the readout towards the end:

Running Exploit
setsockopt() failed: Bad address.
this device is not supported.
kallsyms_addresses search failed.
Rebooting now, after reboot all should be done!
You can close all open command-prompts now!
After reboot all is done! Have fun!

Have you seen this before? I'm hung on this step, is there anything I can do to continue the process?

hahaha! I own this watch, this is the best thing I've ever seen!

I'm no mathmatician, but from an engineer's perspective the "is the light on or off?" riddle being equal to 0.5 or 1/2 when viewed from the vantage of infinity seems to have a good analogy in Pulse Width Modulation (the process, among other things, by which we dim LED lights).

LED's aren't really suitable to be dimmed through reduction of current like other (incandescent) lights, so in order to dim an LED it is instead cycled on an off really fast (hundreds of times per second, faster than the eye can usually notice), and the level of brightness is moderated by our perception as the product of the ratio between how long the light is on versus off. This process is called Pulse Width Modulation or PWM.

So in this postulated case, although the rate at which the light is being turned on and off during this minute is increasing exponentially, that is simply a change in the frequency of the PWM, and as I mentioned before, our perception of brightness is affected by the ratio of how long the light is on vs. off and not the frequency by which this occurs. In this case the light would be on roughly as much as it was off, leading to a brightness perception of half (1/2) max brightness, making the infinite sum result of 1/2 intuitively plausible.

***This ignores the fact that the light is on more than it is off by diminishing returns (I sense the Fibonacci sequence at play here, making the true ratio closer to 1:0.62). Also the logarithmic nature of light perception by our retinal cells (in much the same way the decibel measures our perception of sounds) would in fact make a half intensity light seem brighter than it really is.

Very good place to play Foosball in Vietnam! Long runs the place and is amazing to play against if you want a challenge.

Super great hostel! Very clean and well run. Gmaps says it's in 314, but that's the restaurant, knock on the door of 310 for access to the hostel.
