Equation Server for HTML Docs

Posted on April 27, 2007 by Stephen

So I have been working with a lot of statistics lately and wanted a way to put what I have learned on the web. As many of us know, HTML is not suited for writing equations and MathML is not supported by all browsers. And, I have spent a lot of time typesetting with TeX and LaTeX so I knew the smarty-pants out there had some way of integrating TeX formatting into webbable images. I found the solution here: www.forkosh.dreamhost.com/mimetex.html.

Emerald City Booksellers' discription of products SUCKS!

Posted on April 03, 2007 by Stephen

I was extremely pleased with Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell by Susanna Clarke (ISBN: 1-58234-416-7) when I bought it as a paperback from B&N. When I realized that I wanted to keep this book I searched biblio.com to find a good hardcover first edition copy. For $19.00 plus shipping, I ordered the book from Emerald City Booksellers in Washington.

Their discription:
Very minor shelfwear to DJ only; light wrinkling to spine ends. Bblack DJ, red end papers. In 1806 England, two practicing magicians, Mr. Norrell, and the pormising young magician, Jonathan Strange, form an alliance to help in the war against the French.

What I got was not a good as their discription:
Fair shelfwear to DJ and to spine ends. Well wrinkled spine and soft corners. The price inside the book was $13.95. I would not buy from these robbers again.
