i'm interested in , , , , learning and playing with math. i enjoy writing , , and .

sometimes i hack games for the , but more generally i follow wherever my interests take me. i tend to avoid big projects because of that. i ramble a lot about whatever i'm working on or learning about.

i've helped my sister raise a dozen pet ! i also love , , , and .

i don't really get why people say "what?" whenever i pause to think
or when i say "ummm"
not something that happens as much as it used to but still

it used to be that you could edit your own cookies to extend longer but i doubt that works anymore

websites should have text that appears when you check a "Keep me signed in" checkbox that describes why they won't actually keep you signed in

getting a location request from a website on my desktop is really bizarre since i don't think there's even anything it could retrieve more specific than my IP address which it already has

i'm sure this is already ten times what it costs to make

thinking about the PGA talk when he says "one lemon and one lemon always makes two lemons"โ€ฆ except in GF(2)

I guess I don't hate C++ but it sure makes every solution feel like another problem

I don't know what the trigonometric functions would achieve in this case though

wait, now that i think of it, we already do define a bunch by their Taylor series, and the exponential function in particular is very useful. so i guess that answers that.

speaking of, i was poking through a complex number library and was reminded that there are complex extensions of many functions. would such a thing still make sense for multivectors of many reals? would they be useful?

i think this account is just "things i think that are 'funny' but not ha ha funny" at this point

i've never looked into why, but it is a little funny that complex numbers, being made of a real part and an imaginary part, have the names that they do. they sound like lavish words a newspaper would use.
