Quotes from hither and yon[edit]

I haven't spotted anything particularly interesting in a while ...

To do list[edit]

Remember to update the list of mathematics articles whenever you add a new one, David!

Indexing Archives[edit]

There are a lot of archived talk pages on Wikipedia. These might be useful, but the way things stand, they're not particularly easy to search. So I'm setting up these experimental pages to see if I can create a useful index for the WP:MATH project's talk archives. Eventually, if people like it, I might try to automate the index generation process somehow. DavidCBryant 16:32, 9 February 2007 (UTC)

Personal stuff[edit]

Hi! My name is David C. Bryant. For now I'm using this page primarily to conduct experiments with Wiki markup, because I'm already tired of the conflicts that arise when I use the generic "sandbox" page. 21:58, 22 November 2006 (UTC)

I've already run across quite a few "stub" articles. I think I'll work on some of those for a while. Here's a useful link -- wikipedia:stub. 16:14, 23 November 2006 (UTC)

This is an experiment -- I want to create my own sandbox. Oh -- here's how to maintain sub-pages. 16:25, 23 November 2006 (UTC)

I've been reading the style manual. Here's another useful link -- wikipedia:picture tutorial. Here's another one, for contacting the community of mathematicians: Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Mathematics. Here's still another one, for combatting vandalism. Here's an important editorial guideline. Here's a useful table of math symbols. Here's an even bigger table of math symbols. Here's the mathematics portal. 20:00, 23 November 2006 (UTC)

Here are some links to useful math research resources.

Here's an external link to a useful table of html entities.

Here's an external link to Abramowitz and Stegun.

This is an interesting way to spy on yourself.

Here's another unhelpful set of rules to follow.

Today I found a stub article about quadratic surds. Since I've spent so much time working on those already, it might be fun to expand that particular topic. 19:18, 27 November 2006 (UTC)

I can't really do a good job on quadratic surds until the article on continued fractions is fixed up a bit. Here's a pointer to my working copy. 15:39, 30 November 2006 (UTC)

I searched through all 11 CIT alumni/students who are flying Caltech's flag. It appears that I'm far and away the oldest of the bunch ... most of the rest weren't even born when I graduated in 1973. Oh -- there's a pretty good article about the student houses. It appears that some alley names at Lloyd have changed since I was an undergrad. 21:33, 28 November 2006 (UTC)
