I finally, got this running and displaying equations. Now I can express
my notes in the proper format.
This painful foot prison sentence has kept me stuck inside and
although it's hard to concentrate through all the chronic shooting pains
I still managed to get this working.
My *M Notes now have a place to collect.
But why the weird title?
Ah, I thought something fairly esoteric would do nicely.
While I was in college taking notes in my courses I would often have
extra time to ponder things between useless verbiage a professor
was using. Since, I didn't want to waste my thoughts I'd write them down
right in the middle of the other notes. I needed some way to discern
the class notes from my notes and so I marked a capital M in the margin
next to any notes I made for myself.
If I had had a particularly good idea I'd place a 5 pointed star next
to the M. That way I could quickly scan back for those extra special pieces
On the computer it became asterisk M (*M) Hence the site is called *M.
And so my online notes pay tribute to that tagging system I
devised for the extra useful notes of mine.
Side note, this is the first visual manifestation of the Split Check Problem.
The infamous evening breaker that sucks some of the fun out of those outings
with more than 2 friends. Yes! I have been thinking over the problem and am
considering how best to solve the thing. I figured out the problem was best
solved by forming a path made up of vector components in a higher dimensional
space. (The picture shows that there ought to be many path ways towards the total
bill but for a given group of dinner goers which way you lean can be the difference
between someone getting really ripped off *cough generous or fairness)
Go figure, I was excited to find expressing the splitting check problem
was actually simpler using higher dimension Riemannian space.
Ow, chronic pain really is the worst kind of pain.
