Hi Mathsisfun;

Yes, it is. I lost both of my thumbs in a duel over who was the better mathematician and have trouble reaching the spacebar.

Brilliant idea. If I remove my shoes and procure a hammer, I would be quite capable at hexadecimal.

Hey everyone! Names Tony, and yes you can cal me Tone(beep beep). I'm sorry for not introducing myself in my previous posts, but i am under pressure getting this "should-be-simple" discrete structures with all my other finals coming up. I am a new member and I have read previous posts from other members that helped tremendously! I have completed up to calc one and preceeding math classes (trig, algebra "of course", applied). I am enrolled for summer calc 2 so I am sure I'll be exercising my mind routinely on here! I am a CompSci major with a double minor.

Hi eminesh, and welcome. Why not create a new introduction topic and tell us all about yourself.

Hi careless25;

I just saw that. I don't know how I missed that before. Please erase it. Where did you get an idea like that? She is someone I like and respect and that is embarassing me. In addition you spelled my name wrong.

Hi iamfriendly;

Glad to help!

Not really LQ, but thanks for asking. If I thought everything was okay I would suspect I was losing my grip on reality.
