for soe reason i spent my lunch hour making this out of the defunct "Matt Parker Speaks Binary Dot Com" source code and @christianp's https://three.onefouronefivenine.com/ logic:

Matt Parker Knows All Of π:

I like how they embedded the game in the post!

Thanks to everyone who's written something on WhyStartAt.xyz so far.

I'm gathering ideas and some questions about how the site should be organised, at https://whystartat.xyz/wiki/Whystartatxyz:Organisation

Please add your opinions!

I've made a change to LaTeX editing on mathstodon.xyz: unicode equivalents outside maths delimeters are no longer automatically inserted. Instead, when you select a LaTeX autocompletion, if it can be rendered using just unicode, that's inserted instead of the LaTeX code.

For example:

𝑓 : 𝑋→𝑌 = sin(θ²)

was produced by writing

\( f: X \to Y = \sin(\theta^2)

and pressing enter.

Wrote a new post on the basics of analyzing Impartial Games. More to follow!

Mathematicians: variables are named using Latin, Greek, Fraktur, Hebrew and Linear B letters in bold, italic, script, sans-serif and serif forms.

Also mathematicians: I need some brackets. Guess I'll use good ol' parentheses again! 😎
