Sorry. I was taking a holiday (it went very well), then trying to resuscitate my Java (it's feeling a bit better, I should learn to use github well and put what I did there soon), then seeing a lot of doctors (nothing serious, just many little nuisances that amounted to a lot of time wasted).
Now I have enrolled in Christian Hergert's C class. I can't wait for the fun to start... I cannot thank Christian enough for his dedication to this (huge) endeavour. And my first mentor (a long story, one that tells how I really got into programming in the first place) tells me that I should give Go a try - and I want to.
Last but not least, my PhD has started again. The notorious Scarf's Lemma has resurfaced again, and so has the PPAD complexity class. Fingers crossed...
[Fun, totally uncorrelated, fact: I looked for Scarf's Lemma on Wikipedia, and I found a picture of Scarf. And he looks a lot like François Truffaut - don't you think?]
