You (and whoever else linked to this) killed Berkeley's math server. Without the mathematicians, who's going to solve the important problems that plague our lives? Oh wait, nevermind. Carry on.

Berkeley, your server is weak. I taunt you.

Can we get a sarong on the IT guys at Berkeley? That might help them solve some of the problems they're evidently having.

They're mathematicians, how can they be stupid?

Unless maybe you're Richard Cohen...

Ummm. Mathematicians. In sarongs. Ooookaaayyy.

Last time I checked, SI had their Swimsuit Edition online. Just sayin'.

Pffft. I hope they know more about Kleinian three-dimensional hyperbolic manifolds than they do about webservers.

What I want to see is a site for mathematicians in sarongs who married scientists with luxuriant flowing hair. Now that would be a good website.

Y'all didn't kill Berkeley's math webserver - the whole network was down for some other reason. There have been disconnected math professors wandering the halls all morning. And I've been unable to get into Metafilter.

It's back now. (And pretty damn zippy, too!)

The same fellow has been observed proving the Artin-Wedderburn Theorem while wearing a tutu, which, if you ask me, is much more impressive.

Also, sure, why the heck not: Female mathematicians who have been known to have teal hair.

for very large values of teal, it seems.

This is the third thing on metafilter in the past 2 days that wasn't nearly as sexy as I was expecting.

Confound you, gleuschk, I came to this thread to post that!

Hey gleuschk -- my sister-in-law's on that page, which I hadn't seen before. Neat-o. (Not that anybody else cares...)

Two sarongs don't make a right.

Wow, that's my first ever 'win'. Good times.
