Kind of falling behind on personal thesis writing quota for today. Still workin' on it. As a consequence missed going to see "Watchmen" with theadana and pals, which I regret.

Interleaving it with fiddling around with that O'Caml demo that Nels wrote. I found it surprisingly easy to turn that idea I had last October about "count-unbiased" averages into a little interactive toy. Props to O'Caml's Graphics library; it exposes some convenient things, and is (unlike other libraries/tools that expose nice interfaces for visualization such as Flash, Javascript+DOM, Processing) part of a sane language, but for which I would have probably gotten kind of annoyed in the middle of implementing Gaussian elimination.

(as for O'Caml, I find I actually do rather like the let-construct without "val"s everywhere and without an end. It sort of obviates tom7's "do" as found in humlock, since it's easy to just stick in imperative statements without any prefix.)
