Parallel processing

December 11, 2009

Via Spontaneous Symmetry, a fascinating story about parallel processing and the power of blogging: Normally, when [a mathematician] seeks a proof, he locks himself in a room with a chalkboard for long periods of time. He may consult his peers at his university, he may read books, he may look through papers, but the majority […]

The TinyMCE editor has a devilish tendency to strip line breaks if accessed in Safari 3+, both in the visual and code views. The prospect of […]

February 3, 2008

So I'm starting to get comfortable with this blog business, though I need to learn some CSS quickly to build a better theme...
