I just use google docs and sheets. I miss having office and windows.

Xevross

So I don't have ms office. Instead I'm using Libreoffice.  

I don't understand why the default is so bad.  

You get this single worthless menu.  If you want to do anything basic like changing the font size you have to go through the header and look for the right menu and then find the font menu.  It actually has a menu just like new word, but it's not the default.  (It might not be a terrible menu, I'm just not used to it.).

Or why the color scheme is so bad.  The icons are the same color as the MS office ones. But the apps themselves are like check out this white document and this slightly off white menu.  There's barely any contrast.  
You don't have access to office through work?

Not for personal use. :P

I can't be the only one that works on math in my spare time, right?

Maybe in the far future I'll try to publish something.

My blood boils something fierce when an antivaxxer reacts with a laughing emoji to my comments.

Course not.

I got my math books back from my parents a couple weeks ago.

Books are for nerds.

I use wolfram alpha.



Back in college I tried to solve a math problem for 100 bucks. Wish I could remember the name/find the website that offered the reward. It was an infinite series that possibly contained every integer, so they wanted a proof showing if it did or didn't. Spent some time exploring it but never solved it.

Amazon.com: Brother MFC-L3710CW Compact Digital Color All-in-One Printer Providing Laser Printer Quality Results with Wireless, Amazon Dash Replenishment Ready: Electronics

I bought a printer.

I ended up cancelling this order. It kept getting pushed back. 

Instead bought a $400 printer from Best Buy.  Yikes.

I hate printers. I don't think I've ever bought one I had zero issues with.

First impressions: this is magical. 

There are 4 ink cartridges, each one is huge. Combined they are legitimately close to the size of a normal printer you'd buy from Walmart.

Easiest printer set up I've ever had. 

Plug in, connected it to the wifi. My computer and my phone found it right away.  Didn't have to mess with stupid drivers, random installation services or anything else. It just worked.

If it's like this 5 years from now, I'll just say I have a perfect printer.

I feel like a crazy person. What do the numbers mean!?

What are the odds that two related numbers intuitively should be identical but instead split apart after 4 decimal places? This keeps happening to me time and time again and I feel like I've joined the occult, looking for patterns for the sake of patterns instead of following the math.

Haha I'm using numbers with 500 decimal places just because I'm paranoid my results can't be trusted.

Wouldn't I like to know?!

I'll present all this work in Hapax lol. It's the same stuff I was working on years ago.

Don't know if it's novel or trivial but it involved calculating tetration with real heights.
