Hi! --Swensonj 23:38, 15 September 2012 (EDT)

[edit] Welcome!

Welcome and good luck with the hash! I'm an ex-mathematician and an exiled native of northern Illinois as it happens, which is why I'm saying hello. -- OtherJack 03:44, 16 September 2012 (EDT) , Seattle WA

Wait, OtherJack, how does one become an ex-Mathematician? Does one stop counting things? I have a BS in math myself (some 25 years ago), but find myself daily asked to explain Huffman encoding or the Goldbach conjecture. How can you see the George Washington Bridge and not consider calculating the area under the curve? --Thomcat 20:43, 18 September 2012 (EDT)
No one ever asks me stuff like that (and I've never even heard of Huffman encoding). I think the reason is your employment in the software world and my employment outside that world. I still have to count occasionally, though. Anyhow, James, nice first hash, and thanks for the message! -- OtherJack 23:32, 18 September 2012 (EDT)

Fine with me! -- Dvdwinter9 10:38, 26 November 2012 (EDT)
