an observation, another photo.

even in my handwritten notes,
i precede side comments and remarks with backslashes: //

this is slightly odd. even when i used to study computer science, i rarely added comments to my C code.

backslashes are typographically convenient, though.

if it is a long remark, one just extends the slashes. imagine, in contrast, how silly percent signs % would be! q-:

at some point i'll post about more substantial matters. there seem so many things to finish up, especially as fall semester draws near ..
