I believe I've got the important problems with images worked out. And I'll return to posting stuff from Pinburgh later this week, barring surprises. Not today, though. I just don't have the energy to deal with it. I'll keep my postings about mathematics-blog content, though. It does exist as a Dreamwidth feed, and is still available on the LiveJournal feed, and as an RSS feed too. This was a quiet week in the number of articles posted, but one of them was a monster, big and I say important, so I feel satisfied:
- Reading the Comics, May 13, 2017: Quiet Tuesday Through Saturday Edition, a week that had some talk about mathematics anxiety but nothing all that big.
- Everything Interesting There Is To Say About Springs, and showing off some of the secrets of people who solve diff eq's. Lots of physics at work! Also that Mystery Science Theater 3000 short because I could hardly not.
- Reading the Comics, May 20, 2017: Major Computer Malfunction Week Edition, a week that luckily went easy on me.
So that was the week. As I say, pictures to come.
Meanwhile how about a bit of symmetry? What's Going On In Prince Valiant? February - May 2017 is the most recent post on my humor blog, and it describes the last couple months of action in the time of King Arthur there. Valiant and company are way out of England right now, off tromping around Tibet Or Something. Not to worry, they've found refugees harassed by brigands.
Trivia: In late fall of 1928 long-term loans from the United States to Germany and the rest of the world fell from $1.5 billion per year to just over half a billion per year, the start of the fiscal crisis that would ruin the German democracy.
