There's been no school shooting in Korea, for there's strict gun control here. But a couple of times there had been a runaway soldier who shot his family in law. And somebody who had lost his hope, sort of, once drove his car into a crowd in a square. Such things happen when somebody feels hopeless,...

To have a gun or not, I don't think it's the source of or solution to the problem. Of course the easy access to guns have played part of the role. But such a shooting rampage does not happen always in spite of the fact that the access is always easy. It's the dark intention that kills. If he had not...

Virginia Tech Massacre

My condolences for the victims. There can be a few insane people anywhere. Sometimes they are armed. They are scarce, but when they move, the result is a disaster. But we cannot wear bullet-proof jackets all the time. So something must be done to enhance the security where we believe it has to be mo...

Mingshey, I had forgotten what a beautiful document this was. Maybe you didn't. The ibycus font last time was bitmapped, and it looked jagged when viewed from some old version of PDF viewers.

Updated Euclid's Elements

Nice to see you all again. I have upated Euclid's Elements in Greek recently. There's no great improvement, however. Corrected some minor errors in the figures, and grecized the chapter names, etc. Not succeeded in grecizing numbers, though, however unimpotant it may be. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki...
