This And That

Been putting the final touches on some changes around here, as well as starting to grade midterms, and trying in vain to buy a house for the third time in two years. So today is a very unhappy day. Sorry for the ether silence. Please note also the new email address listed here, which is a prelude to the upcoming unveiling of a new Knowledge Problem website …

One entertaining thing came my way late last week: this amusing site for understanding British slang.

And this interesting list of the 100 greatest novels of all time contains a lot of books that I’ve always said I should read but never have, some of which are currently sitting on the bookshelves next to me. Thanks to Greg Ransom for the tip.
