My brother went through his surgery last week and there were no major complications during operation (though there were numerous afterwards, I'm not up to speed with all the details). While I am aware that it's going to take a lot of time for him to recover, relief doesn't even begin to describe what I'm feeling. I want to thank you once more for all the support and kindness.

Otherwise… ah, fuck it. I'll just show you.

That's my life now. I'd be more enthusiastic if the picture above wasn't a result of sixty hours of work combined with the feeling of 'being halfway there'. It's not even a research project, that's from my take-home exam.

Glad your brother's okay. Both of you, keep on rockin'.

About that 'QED(?)', it's sort of an in-joke based on the observation one of my friends made: all the 'end of proof' phrases sound like questions. :P

I'm partial to ∎. Half because Halmos, half because saying "I'm done now" with a tombstone is just satisfying.

Both work for me, but tombstone is easier for me to miss in handwritten notes than an acronym.


I'll have to get to his 'automathography' and textbooks at some point. Mathematicians from the USA often talk about him as Poles do about Banach, so it seems like a mistake on my part to put those off.

I love watching people discuss something with passion. Even if I don't understand a thing they're saying, I get a thrill from seeing someone enjoy themselves.
