A qualified chemist who somehow drifted into web development. I've learned (to a greater or lesser degree of accuracy) PHP and JavaScript, and would like to learn something completely different for the sake of it. I'm a weirdo who actually enjoys reading (and sometimes writing) technical documentation.

revised Find a point $p_1$ on the line $l$ with distance d from the point $p_2$ on the same line
Tweaks to LaTeX and to formatting. Changed one instance of x_2 to y_1, as I'm *pretty sure* that's what was meant. Also, "like" and "etc." are mutually redundant: use one or the other, but not both.

comment Explaining Infinite Sets and The Fault in Our Stars
Also, the author has a scientifically-minded brother and a very geeky audience, both of whom should have put him right on this.

comment How can a piece of A4 paper be folded in exactly three equal parts?
When you say "oblong envelope", I assume you mean DL envelope? A C5 envelope, for example, is also oblong, but would not require folding A4 in thirds.

revised Does the power rule for irrational exponents hold for x<0?
Removed unnecessary prefix from question title. Tweaked link text. Small grammar tidying (removed a question mark). Also my first time ever editing LaTeX, I think.

revised Problems 3.2, I. Martin Isaacs' Algebra
Removed unnecessary prefix from question title. Tidied grammar. I suspect the quote was mistyped, as some words seem to be missing, but I don't know how to correct this.
