Note:These pages make extensive use of the latest XHTML and CSS Standards. They ought to look great in any standards-compliant modern browser. Unfortunately, they will probably look horrible in older browsers, like Netscape 4.x and IE 4.x. Moreover, many posts use MathML, which is, currently only supported in Mozilla. My best suggestion (and you will thank me when surfing an ever-increasing number of sites on the web which have been crafted to use the new standards) is to upgrade to the latest version of your browser. If that's not possible, consider moving to the Standards-compliant and open-source Mozilla browser.

Too Polite

Surely, subscribers to the comment feeds here at Musings or at the String Coffee Table must have noticed that the <PubDate>s of the comments in the feed coincided with the date the corresponding entry was posted, rather than with the date the comment was posted.

Turns out that it was a subtle incompatibility between SimpleComments and (recent versions of) MovableType. Easily fixed, once I figured out what was going on.

 Edward Witten Filibustering Frist
Chiara Nappi Filibustering Frist

In other news, as reported at Talking Points Memo, Preposterous Universe and elsewhere, Edward Witten and Chiara Nappi joined the Frist Filibuster at Princeton University’s Frist Campus Center.

It appears that they both read from Griffiths, Introduction to Elementary Particles. My, how that must have thrilled and inspired the crowd. Alas, I missed their appearance on the live video feed. Perhaps some other Princeton Faculty will take a turn at the bullhorn. I’d be happy to suggest some suitably uplifting readings …

Frank Wilczek Filibustering Frist

Update (4/29/2005):

Looks like the Frist Filibuster is turning into a veritable Who’s Who of Theoretical Physics. Frank Wilczek is scheduled to pick up the bullhorn at 8:30 pm, tonight. [Hat tip: Aaron Bergman]
