Hello everyone;

I thought it wouldn't be very bad if I introduced myself once again.

My name is Agnishom. I am a long time member of this forum. I'd say that being a member here has had non-trivial influences on me.

I joined this forum when I was in seventh or eighth grade. I needed some help solving some (elementary) geometry/algebra problems and I got the help I needed. Slowly, I realised that this forum offers more than just homework help, but a community. There are threads here where people have had wonderful conversations pages after pages, sharing their everyday emotions.

Soon, I became friends with bobbym. As you'd have guessed, most of my 24k+ posts are justs conversations with him, here and there on the forum. I tried convincing my friends to join this forum, which includes A, my then crush, later girlfriend and now ex. I posted birthday wishes for her on this forum as well. I asked another friend to get on to this forum and I taught her some elementary differentiation. bobbym told me about experimental mathematics, numerical methods and many interesting things. I disagree with some of his opinions, but surely he has been very influential.

The last three years, I had been pursuing undergraduate education in Mathematics/Computer Science. My area roughly is Logic/Programming Languages/Automata Theory. bobbym did not seem to like Logic/Algebra very much. I tried telling him about Curry-Howard isomorphism, but that discussion did not go very far since I started becoming less active on the forum. I wonder what he'd have thought of my current research. I am currently a PhD student at Rice University.

I am thankful to y'all for this wonderful forum and its amazing how much it shaped and comforted the teenage me. Please keep it up.

To be honest, I've never introduced myself in this forum, though probably I will save that for my 2,000th post later.

Actually I never watch Star Wars and not interested in it anyway, but I choose a Yoda card as my avatar in honor of our great friend bobbym who has passed away.

May his adventurous soul rest in peace at heaven.
