I’m reliably informed that this is my very first post.   Thanks, wordpress!

I have no real plans for this blog, except perhaps to see how long I can stay completely unread and unfollowed.   I did pretty well at twitter until my ottenray otherbray followed me just out of spite.

I’ll probably rant about pinball,  internet freedom, /. , the wonderful beauty of the violoncello,  how badly Excel and Word and PowerPoint suck (vs. how great R and scipy and LaTex are), and the joy of sharing my home with Papillons  (thus the graphic following).


BTW,  I also hate MatLab, for the same basic reasons as this great blog:  http://abandonmatlab.wordpress.com/ .
