Golden lights displaying your name

40-and-50

Today is Switchsky's birthday. Happy birthday Switch.

(The great thing about blogger is that you can backdate stuff so that belated birthday wishes almost seem like they were there at the right time in the right place from the start.)

he-is-knowable

Incredible to think that this is still one of the biggest questions out there.

Especially as it is so clearly and incontrovertibly answered by those models of pedagogic objectivity: everystudent.com. Thanks guys!
