My copy of "Empires of the Word" had in fact been lost at Joe Mama's! I got it back now. Woo. haydensphere, if you are reading this, I am happy to loan it to you.

I also checked out "Intro to Commutative Algebra" from Thackeray, because I tried sitting in on the algebraic geometry seminar that psifenix told me about, and holy crap is my ideal theory rusty. I guess I never learned it properly — just little bits and pieces here and there — but my unlearning of it was highly comprehensive. Anyhow I think I've got at least the basics of prime and maximal ideals 'n' stuff. I need to understand Noetherian modules better, and work through the Nullstellensatz.
