Friends MOSTLY

Friends mostly! I still do a lot of public posts, but non-friends are screened by default.

Make sure to read this first: http://fayanora.livejournal.com/838343.html

Buy my book! (science fiction)

Buy my dad's book! (nonfiction)

for existing friendsCollapse )



(Click the picture to get at least an idea of the meanings. Only "ingenuus memes" are defined there yet. That and the opposites of the others.)

Friends mostly. Mainly means there's a bunch of content friends-locked. Also, non-friends and anonymous posters are screened by default. If you are an ass in your comments, your comments will be deleted.

Comment to be added. And if you're an old friend getting a new LJ, let me know that information.

Friending must-knows:

1. I do not tolerate myself or my friends being made fun of for any reason. If I find you have done this, you will be unfriended and banned.

2. I NEVER do friend-culls. If you find you've been banned, it's either a mistake or for the above reason. If you believe it to be a mistake, let me know.

Also, there are three stages here:

1. There's an "Acquaintances" filter, for people I don't know very well. Not much more they get to see than public does, but some things. If you never see any friends-locked entries here, let me know. It seems I have to add people to the Acquaintances filter.

2. Friends - They see the most.

3. Multiplicity - Ask me about this one. It's got the most personal stuff of mine.


One last thing: Unless you're a friend, your comments to all posts will be screened.

Fun stuff and more information.Collapse )

Peace;

Hello! This is where you can donate to my cyberfunded/crowdfunded creativity project, Ye Olde Goldyn Appyl Presse. Just specify which particular sub-project of the YOGAP project you wish to fund. Anything not specified will go to the general fund, to be used for any one of the sub-projects.

If I am pimping a project that is already done, I will tell you in the pimping post what project it is. :-)

Nota bene: This button doubles as my "emergency donate" button because I'm too lazy to go back and change it. Any donations not specified as going to a particular project will go to the YOGAP general fund.

Roman numerals

Pi stationary
The more I think about the Roman empire and Roman numerals, the more baffled I become. Like, the Romans must have been some pretty amazingly competent people to have an entire empire like that with such a shitty numeral system as Roman numerals. How the fuck did they even do math with a number system like that? Or did they just use abacuses and scratch hash marks into clay tablets for everyday math, and only used Roman numerals for things like plaques, statues, and so on? Because seriously, how the bleeding frack do you do math in Roman numerals? XIV + IX = ??? How do you solve that? I can barely friggin READ that, and I friggin WROTE IT!

XIV
+ IX
-----
???? What do??? How math???

Thank Goddess for the Arabs, and Arabic numerals, amirite?

Actually, I think I *can* do that problem. 14 plus 9 is 23, so break the V into II, drop the I from IX, and add the remainder, you get XXIII. Still, that might not work for other problems.

EDIT: I found this on Google: http://www.pims.math.ca/~hoek/opinions/Romans/ I don't really understand very well, but I think the basic idea is that the Roman numeral system is designed with the abacus in mind, and that it works a bit like the binary clock my friend Brooke has, in that you put a certain number of beads in different places depending on how many of a certain letter there is. From their explanation, I gather that the Roman system is actually a hell of a lot more simple than the Arabic system in some ways, once you understand it, and things like multiplication and division are especially easy in the Roman system when you know what to do.
