Here's a game:

* you give me a way of determining the nth digit of the mth number
in a list of reals given in decimal;
* I give you back a way of determining the digits of a real in decimal;
* you tell me where that number is in your given list --
you win if it is where you claim, and lose otherwise.

Do you want to play?
