I've been reading over some philosophy of math lately. Edward Nelson, a professor at Princeton. He has a website:

Probably the best to read to start is his "Confessions of an Apostate Mathematician":

Another good one is here:

I'm busy with classes and other studying. I play chess, though, on the train. And maybe a little bit at home. I finished CT Art, the tactics training software. I'll go through it a couple more times, at least up to level 50.

Work is still going. There are a couple things that aren't being managed ideally. Like, they bunged up my access to stuff so I can't access the shared folder that has a lot of the important stuff our team does. They bunged it up for the rest of the team, too, of course. This is bad. Fortunately, they didn't bung up my access to some other systems, because doing so would mean that I would have to, I don't know, hang out in a coffee shop all day or something. I'm a bit shocked that it's past noon and they still haven't fixed it. I suppose it's not terribly important to them that I get work done.

The wifing unit is having some people over on Sunday because she recently had a birthday. I'll try to get all my studying done in advance.

There's a chess tournament in the 'burbs on Saturday, but I don't have a car and need to study, so I won't go. It looks like it would have been good for me, though. Studying is more important, though. At least until May 11th.

And then on May 12th I'm taking a road trip to Staunton, VA.

Okay, I just got the memo, the 3 people who could fix the situation are all out today. So I won't get access until Monday.

what I'm wondering is who she pissed off to end up there. the guy, he's from there, so we've got good evidence for who to blame for that.
