His head did no thinking

Aleksandr Mikhailovich Lyapunov, what have you wrought? You cost me half the night's sleep and my entire morning, then I had to cancel my regular coffee with my best mate - all for your strange ideas about non-linear differential equations. I didn't have a break all day today, I hope you know, and now I feel like my head's being jackhammered. Take your V(x,y) home and don't return until you've come up with a systematic method for finding a function to suit your pernickety criteria.

Of course, it probably wouldn't have taken so long if I hadn't insisted on TeXing as I went.

Today's lecture was quite engaging, and I'm finding the new topic - partial differential equations - to be reasonably non-scary so far. Peter keeps apologising for not being "expert" in the topic. I doubt that any of us would notice this if he didn't say anything.

Question 3 of assignment 7 turned out simply wonderful, which it would not have done without lorne's input. This is a public thank you :)

can I just say "piper at the gates of dawn" again? Or do you insist on that guy with no brain? (obvious really if his head did no thinking)

OK. Scarecrow.

Be that way. And shine on.

H'm. I'm not sure whether I should be flattered or alarmed at being compared with Syd Barrett like that. But you get a star anyway :)
