I currently manage scheduling for the linux super-cluster at Vanderbilt University. We provide computational resources for groups doing research into everything from antibody protein research, through surgical imaging, to dark matter and dark energy research.

Personally, my visage hasn't changed in all these years; and I still do not worry.

comment What do $\gg$ and $\ll$ mean?
This is language dependent. In ruby the "<<" is the append method for an array: [1,2,3] << 4 gives [1,2,3,4]

comment Rigorous way to find the limit of this difference?
Hint: suppose the given angle were 90 degrees, and the angle between r and s were "a". Then you would have "r = scos(a)" As r and s increase without bound, a tends to 0, so cos(a) tends to 1, and you have r = s, so "s - r" tends to 0. Now drag out the law of cosines and see what happens given one angle at 110 and one side fixed at 1.

comment Why isn't the 3 body problem solvable?
All of which leads to the curious, and unanswered question, is the solar system stable?
