mathing it up after dark

I couldn't sleep last night, so I worked on the Target probabilities project. It was annoying me that the old version of the generated HTML (which was generated by LaTeX2HTML) looked kinda ugly - look how jagged the math graphics are! (especially compared with the beauty that is the generated .dvi file) So I tried a few different packages and settled on TeX4ht, which produced this much nicer looking page. Ah, that's better. (although why is that table floating to the right? grr)
I've been making slow progress on actually figuring out the numbers (3 card straights and straight flushes are the worst!) but I'm getting there. Getting the right numbers is a little more challenging.
Before that, we watched Citizen Kane (still good even though we weren't paying full attention) and I played some GTA IV, including a little multiplayer with destroyerj. It was tough without a headset and sucking at the game :-) I managed to flip the cop car we were driving in, and another time destroyerj was driving and I was shooting at something and I saw him jump out of the car. Had just enough time to wonder "Huh?" before we slammed into a stopped car and caught on fire :-)
Finally downloaded The Slip by Nine Inch Nails. So far: very good.
Game night tonight!

Comment from destroyerj:
Hey now, the car was on fire for a good while before I jumped out. I was yelling in vain "Get out, Greg!" before jumping ship myself. When it hit the car, it exploded (I was close enough for the blast to kill me too, knocking me off the bridge).
Comment from djedi:
Yeah, we need to stop by Fry's and get a nice headset.

I have mad LaTeXing skillz. hehe.
No, seriously. I solved a previously unsolvable problem in LaTeX (combining fullpage and fancyheader) and now my solution template has been passed around the department.
