User:SamHB/new user page
This is the user page from my second life, January 2010 to April 2010, just before the "farewell" message that caused TK to go berserk. Many links are of course incorrect. The "Archive" was a link to the "old" user page.
There are many questions and concerns. I need to step back and think about things. SamHB 22:47, 18 March 2010 (EDT)
To whom it may concern:
I was recently unblocked, and my user and user talk pages restored, after having been blocked for about a year. Neither of these actions was requested by me! It started when I saw some edits of math articles (conservative vector fields, Stokes' theorem, that kind of thing) over Christmas weekend, and sent Andy an email about it. To my surprise, in addition to giving a gracious reply, he unblocked me. Then I sent mail to JacobB, using the now-enabled "email this user" mechanism, about the "multivariate calculus" course. A discussion ensued, and he apparently asked Andy to restore the pages. I did not ask JacobB to do this. The pages both turned out to be extremely dreary and unpleasant to look at, so I have archived them.
So here we are. Now, if you'll excuse me, I have an appointment with the wave equation.

Being invited to participate in the "Multivariable Calculus" lectures has been an exciting experience for me. I had no idea, when my account was restored, that I would be invited to participate in this. Focusing my creative efforts on a large project is a very different, more challenging, and more rewarding experience than the miscellaneous pages I had worked on previously.
However, because of the uncertainty of working here, and the uncertainty of this course's acceptance in the internet community at large, it is necessary to diversify my audience. Therefore, I will be creating an account at Wikiversity, and submitting my work to both sites. I will, of course, not copy anyone else's writings without permission.
