After a decade+ of ridicule and dismissal, it's no longer possible to deny that broadband is a human right, nor is it possible to deny that private monopolists suck at safeguarding this right.
To understand how badly broadband monopolists failed, just look at the bankruptcy docs from Frontier. The company chose not to make a $800m profit providing 100gb fiber to its customers because making long-term investments would hurt its stock price.
I wrote up an example showing how to solve a differential equation using continued fractions: http://tpfto.wordpress.com/2020/05/25/on-solving-differential-equations-with-continued-fractions/ That being said, I'm still not certain if this can be systematized into an algorithm for holonomic ODEs.
I redid one of Kitaoka Akiyoshi's illusions in Mathematica a few days ago (picture might cause a little dizziness in sensitive individuals): https://community.wolfram.com/groups/-/m/t/1950552
Some day, I hope to have the luxury of time to implement all the other functions in https://www.lmfdb.org , but I gotta work hard in the meantime.
