you can buy my numbers, sets, and logic notes
as a .PDF download for five bucks.
i get three seventyfive.
then you print it out on your own equipment
at your own expense. it’s got a few scribbles
on it by me from when i used the copy i zapped
as lecture notes literally and it breaks off
in the middle before you get to the best part.
so it’s hardly ready for public consumption at all.
still at the price of an elaborate greeting card,
these’ll make great gifts for everyone
on your list especially me. be advised
that in my holiday exuberance you can
also read it for free.
when the beta version rolls out
this feature will be cut. probably
i’ll deny i ever did it too.
something comes over people
when they start selling and i
don’t see why i should be an exception.

It’s Been Too Long Since We Took The Time

Posted by vlorbik on November 22, 2009

This just uploaded PDF is the end of my decade-spanning quest for a procedure for putting pages, written and typeset by me on my own computers, onto the web with my own computer. The tables are very ugly. This is because I had to kluge ’em together by hand with no prior knowledge of how it’s really done, just to get something on the page. I was using plain TeX. It appears that LaTeX will have solved many of my problems. So I’ll have to learn the new ways and redo all my tables to reuse the files for my lecture notes from Dominican.

Meanwhile, I’ll experiment with TeX right here in the blog.
3 \otimes_7 4 \equiv_7 5.
