> 3D Mandelbrot: This gets my nomination for coolest video yet!

For those of us who are mathematically challenged, this helps explain a Mandelbrot (and maybe why wagga wrote the above): Wikipedia: Mandelbrot set ...Makes my head hurt. :-|

> Besides, it's Pi Day today. www.piday.org/
3/14 -- &#960; (pi) ... Too bad their website is not working. ...or maybe it is overloaded with too many hits.

"If you believe in yourself" . . .

"I DO believe in myself", I kept telling myself. On and on, on and on . . . "I DO believe in myself".
