Long live Deck-u-lator

Deck-u-lator has moved to the Google App Engine.  There are several improvements in this this new version.

  • It is more accurate.  I have replaced the Stirling approximations of the factorial function with exact factorial calculations.
  • It is faster.  Several coding changes were made as I re-wrote this from Perl in Python.  Calculations for factorial and binomial coeffecients are cached.
  • It is more reliable.  Google's App Engine has better uptime performance than the Imp Lair servers.
  • It is easier to use.  Calculations have gone from three steps down to two.

Give it a try!
