Every once in a while when I'm at the gym my mind wanders and I
start thinking about stuff like "How in the world did Bill Gates
get another Time magazine cover story?" or "What's a good way to
approximate pi over root 3 by rational fractions?" (for the
answer, cf A.K. Dubitskas, Vestnik Moskovskogo Universiteta
Matematika, Vol 42, No 6, pp 73-76, 1987)...

Today I was thinking that Apple should take the opportunity to
rename itself to accompany the merger with NeXT.

I'm not very creative, so I might need some FoRKhelp.
