jmertus - Professional Profile



I received a BS in Mathematics from Carnegie Mellon University with the distinction of one of the few people ever to fail English at that University. I studied Mathematics Logic under Abraham Robinson in graduate school in some university located in downtown New Haven whose name I can never remember. But it had a lot of neat old building and a cool library underground. Couldn't have been very wealthy because when they built another library, they had to use thin sheets of rock instead of windows. Alas he died before I finished.
To pay for all of this, I work in the summers hauling frozen mushrooms around Lake Erie; I learned lots of truck repair because these trucks always broke down. I later became an NASE certified automobile mechanic, then mistakenly enrolled in a Celestial Mechanics course at Brown University thinking that it would help me repair Saturn automobiles. Before I discovered my error, I had accidentally written a thesis in Applied Mathematics and received a PhD
Now I write code for a living and get paid more than honest work.
