version history


                    Work on the Large Numbers Site (LNS) began on June 10th of 2008. Then on December 9th, 2008 the LNS was officially launched. Since then the website has been under slow but almost constant updates and developments. To keep track of the various versions of the web book content I began giving version numbers to the book. Below is a table of versions of the book for every major update since the inception of the site until the present version.
