I'm not dead!
« on: May 17, 2010, 11:26:26 am »
Hey everyone!

Some of you might have noticed that I dropped off the face of the map a while ago*.  My school schedule got a bit crazy but it finally finished a couple weeks ago.  I was hoping to work on some calc-related stuff so I had something to show, but unfortunately I kept getting side-tracked so all of my projects are exactly as they were all those months ago :(

How has everyone here been?  Any new cool projects?  (You guys have been busy.  I have a feeling it'll take me weeks to get caught up with all the topics/posts :o)


*If anyone wants some nasty specifics about where I was, here are some excerpts from my new book "Semester from hell: what NOT to cram into four months" (available June 3 for $6.66 in a bookstore near you):
- One credit-hour classes:  they're more like 20 hours but they only charge you for one.  I took two. *simplethinker slams his head against a concrete wall*
- Paid research projects:  they take a whole lot of work.  I did two. *simplethinker slams his head against a concrete wall even harder*
- If ever both the regular and backup professors are on sabbatical, don't take the class.  My Quantum mechanics teacher didn't know most of the material and had to bring in a graduate student for some things.  *simplethinker doesn't slam his head into anything; this one wasn't my fault :P*

You scared me! I really thought you quit Omnimaga. Glad you're staying!
And good luck with school. :P Hope you won't be buying a time-travelling machine to be able to attend your lessons/work/whatever-else-you're-doing-extra. ;D

I shouldn't need that.  Once I chose classes I went to talk with each professor to make sure the workload wouldn't be god awful.

And congrats on making staff Silver Shadow!

I'm glad you're back. I was worried we scared you away or something or that you moved on from calc stuff. I hope your school shcedule next year isn't as hectic as it was. It would be a good thing to make sure in advance. Not only you have no free time for yourself but it can be dangerous to burn yourself out.

And yeah a lot of stuff happened in the past months, especially related to that new language for the 83+ and the Nspire jailbreaking :P

Thanks guys :)

Welcome back!

I'm double majoring in math (pure, none of that applied crap :P) and physics (ironic, since physics is just applied math XD).

While watching one of those MIT vids, I heard prof. Auroux say: 'You will often see this notation in physics, and this [other] notation in applied math, which is really just the same as physics but with different notations... LOL
