2001-10-13 – Share dealing

Ok, so not a great revelation, but more of an excuse. I have discovered on-line share dealing. I am now obsessively checking my share values at every opportunity. So, now of course, I am deciding to use my programming ability to write a system to help me out. I have so far knocked up a […]

2001-09-12 – The USA is closed…

After the most incredible act of terrorism, the USA is closed down. A terrible tragedy has occurred, and one which the USA already has the power to stop, or at least limit the chances of success greatly.

2001-03-04 – What’s in the Garage?

“What right does he have to claim to be innovative? Why should he be allowed to write a site like this? What has he ever built, or thought of, that might be of use to the world? But more to the point, what’s in his garage?” (I suspect my neighbours will want to know, too! […]

2000-07-14 – Visualising Maths
