You are almost finished.

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it.

But it was a blur at the same time. That line from Shakespeare does seem to describe it best.

Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage
And then is heard no more: it is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing.

Hi;

It is from Macbeth. Kind of cynical don't you think?

Cynical is appropriate for a text like Macbeth.

### Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

Not really... had a couple of e-mail exchanges to PJ/Holly today but nothing special. It was just a kind of "you revising?" "yeah, you?" "yep, good luck for your exam", etc. and that was the end of it.

I wonder if adriana is thinking about me at all. Last time I heard from her was the 13th of April.

I remember her very clearly. Then again I remember the image of some people 10 years ago who I've not seen since then.

### Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

It would be better if you did not remember her so well. The human brain has a finite capacity. She is taking up space. You should send her to the recycle bin.

I don't know, some things I just cannot forget. I still remember pi to hundreds of decimal places despite having rarely recited it for years, but it's unforgettable.
