The Unapologetic Mathematician

Mathematics for the interested outsider

Things break down

WordPress seems to have messed with \LaTeX again, and fouled it all up. Dozens of perfectly well-formed expressions are throwing errors, including $ latex \sigma$. Since writing lowercase sigmas is pretty much essential for the current topics, I’m just not going to write until they fix their mess.

And if anyone from WordPress reads this: one of the major I encouraged people to start math, physics, and computer science oriented weblogs on WordPress’ platform is exactly its support for LaTeX. It really annoys me to no end that you keep screwing with it and breaking it in pretty severe ways.

  2. Reloading my posts, they seem to have cleaned up their mess now. This time.
