This started off as an aimless rant. But i found something that changed my mood.

OMG OMG OMG, I just found something that would make life easy for this nerd blogger. Observe the following characters (not images)

x ≠ 0, x ∈ ℜ, ∃ y ∈ ℜ, y = 1/x
For all x which are non zero and real, there exists a real y that satisfies the equation y = 1/x

A few more interesting symbols:
ℵ - Aleph, used to denote the cardinality of various infinities
∂ - partial differential of
∫ - integral
≅ - is congruent to
≈ - is asymptotic to/ is almost equal to
≡ - is equivalent to/ is congruent to
≥ - is greater than or equal to
∝ - is proportional to
∞ - infinity

Can you just feel the personality of this blog sapping away? That's not the important thing; but it implies that I am losing my edge/ mind. Where are the stories, the descriptive narrations, the Chinese posts?

If it's not photographs, it's some mad-scientist entry. The next entry will probably be a fusion of statistical thermodynamics and a pinch of chemistry. Goodness, who the hell blogs reads quantum physics and statistical thermodynamics posts anyway?

And have you noticed how I can never be satisfied with my state of mind? Sometimes I weep at my lack of Chinese proficiency, then I complain about my decline in technical articles, or I bitch about too much bad photography, now I'm ranting about too many technical articles.

Not too long ago, I was lamenting that I had not written anything technical. If past trends can be used as a guide for future behaviour, I think I'll get my muse back in a few months and produce loads of half decent writings. Then I'll probably go on about my lack of photographs...


Anyway, here's a photograph. I discovered that it was extremely simple to climb onto the roof of my block of flats. With a tripod and some copyright infringements, I produced a 360 degree panorama.

What's wicked? The mathematical symbols, that dumb rant, or the photo?

the photo! and you'll have to get used to my random change of nicks.

i wanted tafkao ... the artist formerly known as oblique but erm, looks like tafeikei.

Haha, I read tafeikei on my first try.

Nice photo by the way. All that is left to do now is shoot something more panoramic.

Yes, tafkao looks too much like tafeikei. Unfortunately, Im blank at the moment. Diagonal or slant is probably too stupid a nick even though they are parallel to oblique.

Mr Lee:
Now that i've sorted out the technicalities, it's high time i do something aesthetic.
