Today’s news and commentary:
- Hebrew Spelling Service: OK, this is not news or commentary, but still it should be useful for anyone doing anything with Hebrew on Mac OS X.

Image via WikipediaToday’s weird thing is “Algebra in Wonderland”, which claims that Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll parodies mathematical concepts which were new in Carroll’s day. I have no idea whether the author is correct, but at least it makes for interesting reading if you understand something of mathematics. Enjoy and share the weirdness.
