Related to this, I've been wondering why irrationals are not considered 
countable.  Is it not true that for any irrational number, a computer 
program can be written that converges to that number as the number of 
iterations reaches infinity?  Any computer program can be represented as 
a large integer, so computer programs are countable, and by extension, 
any number that a computer program can represent (but not necessarily 
produce) ought to be considered countable.
