Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas

A very merry Christmas to all of you out there. If you don’t celebrate Christmas, I still wish you a happy on of them. It is a wonderful time to spend time with your families and I hope that you all got something nice for and mathy for Christmas.

Personally I use some of the time between Christmas and New year to reflect over the year gone by. What have I learned, what have been good, what have been bad. Not just around mathematical subject, but all aspects of life. And not least, what do I want to change next year.

I started the blog in 2010, but didn’t move  it to the current domain until March 4 2011, so 2012 have been the first whole year of the blog. And what a year. This year Bjarki joined me on the site and wrote several posts, especially about UVA Online Jugde, and also what I consider a rather interesting post about the Disjoint-set datastructure. Right now he is busy studying at university, but I am sure that he will come around again at some point. Continue reading →

Happy new year!

Happy new year!

Happy new year everyone. 2011 is the first full year of Mathblog.dk’s life, and what a year. The site has grown from being completely unknown to have a nice little following. 2011 was not only a prime year, it was also a sum of 6 consecutive primes 157 + 163 + 167 + 173 + 179 + 181 + 191 + 193 + 197 + 199 + 211 = 2011. A geeky and useless fact, but fascinating non the less.

I hope you all entered the year with all 10 fingers intact and without too much of a hangover. I am very excited about 2012 and what that will bring of new and interesting stuff to the blog, and what knowledge I will obtain through writing the blog and interaction with you. 2012 is also the official Alan Turing year, marking his 100’s birthday. This will be celebrated through a long series of events throughout the world. You can see more about that on the official website.

Once again, happy new year everyone 🙂

Merry Christmas everyoneA very merry Christmas to all of you out there. If you don’t celebrate Christmas, I still wish you a happy on of them. It is a wonderful time to spend time with your families and I hope that you all got something nice for and mathy for Christmas. I haven’t gotten any Christmas presents that are math related this year, but I did get Munchkin which is an awesome game when you want to have fun with your friends. Did you get something good and math related?

Personally I use some of the time between Christmas and New year to reflect over the year gone by. What have I learned, what have been good, what have been bad. Not just around mathematical subject, but all aspects of life. And not least, what do I want to change next year.
