comment What mathematical analysis book should I read (research, Putnam, personal enrichment)?
This -> ocf.berkeley.edu/~abhishek/chicmath.htm might be of help. It is interesting to see Pete Clark is one of the participants.

<the moderator was comparing it with equating odds of 1:7 with a probability of 1/7> Aha. Well, it's quite probable.

<colon in most people's mind is strongly associated to geometric proportions> Yes, but how about colon ideals? :-) I know mathematicians, let alone algebraists, are minorities....

Je crois que c'est la question de comparaison, pas celle de partage. Or, je ne remarque pas quelque chose? À propos, j'aime la parabole d'espace projectif!

´╝áRenato Faraone: I don't think it's silly. Of course everybody understands that he used the exclamation mark as an interjection. But $7!$ can mean $7 \times 6 \times 5 \times 4 \times 3 \times 2 \times 1$. :-)

comment Complete and unabridged proof of the theorem of acyclic models
I received "Acyclic Models" today from Amazon and had a look at it. I think it is written in the same spirit as your "Topology and Groupoids" and "Nonabelian Algebraic Topology," that is, to explain the subject thoroughly ab initio. Thanks again for the suggestion.
