Leap Day Bonus Post

Hello gentle reader.  This week is a bit hectic for me, so I don’t have time for a proper update.  But what with it being Leap Day and all, I thought it only appropriate to share some kind of gift with you.

If you have the time, below is an excellent documentary from the 90′s on Fermat’s Last Theorem and Andrew Wiles, the man who set his sights on proving it.  It’s a great documentary, and may have somewhat blown my mind when I first saw it as a high school student.  So take some time out from your Leap Day (it is a bonus block of 24 hours, after all) and check it out!

    I tear up every time I see this documentary. Fermat was my second post when I started my blog http://fawnnguyen.com/2011/12/10/fermats-last-theorem.aspx

    Cool, you found one full video, I was only posting 1 of 5. Thanks, again, Matt.
