Prime Conjecture #1
Every prime number greater than 2 is odd.
My beautiful beeeaaaauuuutiful fiance 🙂
I keep writing little blog engines. but I don’t seem to get to the place of actually using them. I think that’s because what I really want is a convenient way to publish, but I don’t really care about all the control.
I think that blogging falls into the catagory of things I don’t need absolute control over. I want it to just work. And my requirements are fairly minimal so I don’t need all the control that hosting my own site provides.
On the other hand, I have actually enjoyed writing my latest blog engine in CherryPy http://www.cherrypy.org/. But I don’t need to ssh into the box to do each post. I’d be okay with a system that just let me compose my posts offline and then submit them.
What have I done today?
I’ve been working on a solution to Project Euler #8. (Later: I found solutions for Project Euler #8 and #9 today)
I’ve read some in the Real Analysis book I have checked out from the library.
I explored exporting my blog from Blogger (Google Blogs?). to Posterous. I think I’m going to try it. (As this is being posted to Posterous, I have tried it).
This is really just a test to see how many words I can write on one sheet of paper if I’m not really being careful about it. I’m trying to see how much it takes to write about 300 words. I don’t really have any idea whether it will turn out to be one page, or two, or three. I think if I could do at least one interesting topic per day of about 300 words I could have a viable blog.
Ultimately, I suppose my hope is that once I’m used to writing, that I could turn that writing into a book. But I think that the first step is to get writing. The thing is that I’m trying to come up with an amount of writing that I can or will do actually on a daily basis. Often in the past I would try to be overly ambitious or I would start and then raise my standards. In this case what I’m trying to do is just come up with something that is fairly reasonable. I’m wondering if limiting each topic to one page of paper would be reasonable. I don’t actually know my word count for one page but I feel like one page would not be intimidating while multiple pages (per topic) might be.
This is my first post to posterous.
I’ve imported my previous posts from my blog on blogspot.
It will be interesting to see how this blog does.
