The Progression
 

The progression of computing power is an interesting story in its own right.

The Baldwin group collectively spent 12 man-years painstakingly calculating the basic strategy on electronic calculators, the major computation aid at the time.

In his studies, Thorp used a state-of-the-art IBM 704 mainframe computer. His FORTRAN programs enabled the machine to perform the equivalent of some 10,000 man-years of work. The executable time of an approximation was typically 10 minutes.

Today, with an increase of several orders of magnitude in computational power and speed, computer calculations of the same complexity can be done in seconds

The only other downside isn't really a downside so much as a set of features you can't use as a beginner. This is a serious poker forum. Beginners will be overwhelmed by much of the terminology they'll run into at the site and by many of the concepts the posters take for granted. Don't get frustrated.

Unitedpokerforum.com has Mike Caro and Roy Cooke, two great writers, behind it, and that's enough for me. The forum isn't as organized as Twoplustwo, but it feels more casual and relaxed and user-friendly. I suggest you visit both, and "lurk" (read without posting).

There are other forums, but these three should be enough to keep you busy for, at a rough guess, the next 42.042 years.
