I have been having some serious medical problems for a while. I have a lot of difficulty walking and some difficulty using my hands for keyboarding.

Tomorrow I will be starting chemotherapy for cancer. I have been warned that it may be a rough process. I might be offline for a while, but I will make every effort to get back to work soon.

When I have good days I will try to make posts - it's good therapy for me. But I don't know yet how rough the chemotherapy will be.

Wish me luck!

Piphilology: Piphilology comprises the creation and use of mnemonic techniques to remember a span of digits of the mathematical constant "pi". The word is a play on the word "pi" itself and of the linguistic field of philology.
