I'll soon be turning around the corner

In what can only be an underhand trick to make me attend an International econ lecture, the annual meeting for next year's Honours students is scheduled at the same time and in the same place as Friday's lecture. They're achieving this by not running an International lecture on Friday.

The end of the year is way too close.

Things which are puzzling me today:

  • Why are there people in the library basement whistling loudly up the stairs?
  • Why has my Micro course degenerated into calculus?
  • What's so great about polynomial time when this could easily include O(x10,000) - worse than factorial for smallish x?
  • Why are people wasting CPU cycles finding new Mersenne primes when they could be constructing a massive public lookup table of pq for all primes p, q of a certain size?
