I'm moving to a new bat place and new bat format: Numerical Notes. This move is spurred by a combination of technical and personal considerations.

On the technical side: I mostly spend my evenings away from computer networks, which means that the times I'm most likely to take a break and blog are also the times that I'm least likely to have the connectivity to post anything. Also, I've decided that I'd really like to be able to write mathematical ideas, and it's very difficult to do that with plain HTML. The new tools give me more control.

On the personal side: I would rather correspond with my friends and family (by letters or e-mail) than broadcast news through this blog. On the other hand, essay writing to an audience -- even an unknown audience -- has proven to be a valuable way for me to clarify my thoughts. Expect further essays and computations at the new site, but not so much personal news. I hope I will be better about sending letters with that!

Thanks for reading.
