Yesterday, while taking a break from shopping at the Borders just down the road, I made a new acquaintance. He noticed the

__small-format magazine I was reading__ and inquired as to the nature of the publication. In the subsequent conversation, he related an interest in learning web-programming and in mathematics, which, like me, he had last seriously studied back in the seventies.

I gave him the link to my site, www.mrgadgets.com, in the hopes that he would find his way here. I have an idea on how to make that path more obvious, but, barring that, will add a link there manually to lead the way.

Part of this blog is for my benefit to help me keep track of interesting sites.

I like to think they might also benefit others.

So, here are some of the quick results, most of which I have used in my journey of self-instructed HTML coding:

As to mathematics, in the techie path I have taken the need for higher math has not presented itself on a daily basis. My former knowledge has long-since faded. My interest, however, waxes.

So I too will be searching for tutorials on the ever-fascinating subject of numbers and their ever-present role in our world.

Here is a start:
