>Another possibility: prakaprakahapikeke, a little more fun to say. (reminds
me of that Hawaiian fish......) praka-praka another word for jillion, gazillion based on the word for billion (10^9); prakahapi might actually be a computer term; lit. 'a (billion)byte'.
>A googol 10^100 (is that written correctly?) would simply be _fola matu
rongo_ 'ten to the hundredth power'. Is there a name for 10^1000? 10^1,000,000? etc. I think that 10^googol is called a "googolplex." (googleplex ?) Bruce Freedberg
