I like to stay up late on the computer, looking for answers.

welcome to nick-black.com!

This is the home server of Nick Black (aka dank), located at 33°46′44.4"N, 84°23'2.4"W (33.779, 85.384) in the heart of Midtown Atlanta, GA. This wiki is primarily for my personal use, but open to public viewing in case anything generally helpful emerges. Dankwiki's rollin' wit' you. I make no guarantees concerning correctness, relevance, or timeliness of the information contained herein. Track changes using the Recent changes page. I was pondering a strictly technical blog, but this wiki and grad school have satisfied ye olde furor scribendi. Until then, don't mistake my kindness for weakness: rien n'est simple, mais tout est facile...

Seriously: I primarily write to force my own understanding, and remember things (a few entries are actually semi-authoritative). I'm just a disreputable Mariner on your way to the Wedding. If you derive use from this wiki, consider yourself lucky, and please get confirmation before relying on my writeups to perform surgery, design planes, determine whether a graph G is an Aanderaa–Rosenberg scorpion, or feed your pet rhinoceros. Do not proceed if allergic to Linux, postmodern literature, nuclear physics, or cartoonish supervillainy. ■


QEMFD! (wikipedia, wolfram) also provides...

A few remarks regarding computers etc.

Still have any questions?
