How do you apply Cantor's proof to a list constructed as follows:
"Define a list L such that the n'th entry on the list consists of all 1's if the n'th digit of Omega is 1, otherwise it is all 0's."

Perhaps if you could point out to me why you believe Cantor's proof that not all Reals can be listed (as it appears you do) but you don't believe my proof that not all computable Reals can be listed. They appear identical to me.
