.... I'm telling you why...
Donald Knuth is coming to town!
His annual Xmas Tree lecture. Yessir, the biggest event
on the digital calendar, Dec. 4, 6:30 PM, PST. Not to
be missed by any nerd, geek, or those who aspire to such felicity.
'tree' is literal, as Knuth is the Duke of Graph Theory.
Hand him any problem, he'll convert to a graph model, and go
from there. There may not be blood, but there will be graphs.
