Well I didn't mean unlimited. What I actually meant with constraints of the hardware for a given machine. I knew I should have explained it when I was writing it and that someone or several people would bring up this issue. It's of course obvious you can't unlimited anything in the real physical world.
Anyways to make a short question longer for you people. Is there any class in .NET that will let you create a number with the limits of a given hardware on that machine or any machine connected to it or any medium that will be connected to it for storage in which you can share resources through clustered computers so you can do basic manipulation of that number?
In Java it's basically the BigNumber class and it seems as though it's specifically architectured for cryptography where you have all the methods necessary for RSA, AES, etc.
Anyways long question short create a larger size number than 64bits, which you can specify within limit of hardware of course ;). So ie I want a 1024 bit number or whatever.
