As much as we bitch about WordPress at times, it does have some redeeming qualities: today’s favourite of those is the ability to backdate posts, so that it looks like we
have our shit together weren’t late posting last this week’s issue of mathNEWS.
Don’t you just love us?
I’d put some effort into this, but like everyone else this week, I just don’t have time for mathNEWS right now.
It’s not like anyone reads these posts anyways.
So apparently people eat Tide Pods®. Seriously? What the hell are our brains even for at this point?
But speaking of malfunctioning brains, it’s just (at least, at the time of this writing) come to my attention that I made a typo while transcribing last issue’s (mathNEWS 136.2) haltingPROBLEM: the 2 and the 5 in the fifth column from the left are in the wrong spots, so from top to bottom, the column should read “1 2 5“, instead of “1 5 2”. Stupid mistake on my part, really, and especially after promising that this one was solvable. For what it’s worth, if you swap those two numbers, it really does have a unique solution. (Again, I checked with the correct numbers, and itorED can vouch for it.)
Anyways, here’s this week’s mathNEWS:
Sorry about the mistake in the nonogram everyone. Have a great Reading Week.
I swear we already did this two weeks ago.
Does this just keep happening? Will it ever stop? Am I going to be stuck in this loop forever?
At least I have mathNEWS, I guess…
mathNEWS 136.2 (w/ haltingPROBLEM error)
Update: February 15th, 2018
The original version of this issue contains an error in the rendering of its haltingPROBLEM, which unfortunately renders it unsolvable. While the original will remain online for posterity (for now), you can find a corrected version of mathNEWS 136.2 below:
mathNEWS 136.2 (Corrected)
Because hey, what else is actually new, right?
It’s the end of term, and it seems that mathNEWS 20XX (the new format) has officially done well. See? I knew that the landscape thing was a good idea! I just needed more than two hours to get it right. Also it probably should have been portrait to begin with.
Anyways, here’s Issue 7. Thanks for a great term, everyone.
Issue, that is. Hope no one takes issue with that pun.
