Chaitin's Omega exists. Its binary expansion exists, in which there exists an n'th digit for all n, which we can denote Omega_n. So a list L:N->R exists for which L(n) = (1 - Omega_n) / 2^n.
For all k, the k'th entry in L is either 0 or 1/2^n. Both of these are computable, so L is a list of computable numbers.
