I have purchased, last weekend, Paul Hoffman's book The Man Who Only Loved Numbers. This is a biography of the great and equally eccentric number theorist of all times Paul Érdös.
The book has been published in 1998, two years after the death of Érdös in Warsaw. The first 25% of Hoffman's book is interesting and entertaining at the same time. It tell the story of a man who devoted his whole life to Mathematics, who travelled from country to country carrying all his belongings in a briefcase and a bag.
Je viens d'acquérir une SlingBox. La SlingBox est un équipement que l'on connecte à un terminal de réception télé et à un routeur. La SlingBox permet par la suite de contrôler ce terminal télé à distance là où une connexion Internet est disponible et aussi d'écouter la télé à l'autre bout du monde comme si on était chez soi.
