Digest of posts from February 12th to February 19th, 2018

As I might have warned you, I've been going down rabbit holes and following my curiosity as I answer your questions and share formulas I've been working on for a while. It may seem chaotic - and it kinda is when combined with heavy painkillers for my back - but I'm having fun, and I hope you are, too.

Just so you know, you can find posts all the way back to January 31st, 2011 on the new blog, so I'd encourage you to take a look at what's over there!

Patreon means this is a Patreon exclusive post, and you have to be a Patreon subscriber to access it. (As a note, you can subscribe for as little as $1 a month to access the blog! Click here to learn more.)

Patreon Q&A means this is a question someone posed on Patreon and I'm answering it. You have to be a Patreon subscriber to access it.

If it doesn't say Patreon on it after January 1st, it means it's open to everyone.

Administrative stuff means stuff about the blog, like how things work or will work.

Discussion is an open thread where I hope to see your comments, thoughts, or questions, although you're welcome to share on any post over there.

Open thread is a post where you can discuss any topic you wish!
