Yes ... I Am A Nerd

Before we go any further, I guess I should admit just how much of a geek I really am ...

All of my computers have been named after mathematicians: the Windows box is Gauss, the iMac is Mac Lane, the MacBook is Noether, my old PowerBook was Euler and my original iBook was Euclid.

Not being one to mess with tradition, I've christened the young, slim and clever MacBook Air "Tao", in honour of Terence Tao, who I mentioned yesterday.

I was tempted to balance out the sexes a little, by naming it Kovalevskaya, but I just couldn't handle the thought of having to ping such a long host name ... plus Terry was on my mind due to his lecture.

Maybe next time, Sofia.
