"So there's a book of some math stuff that wasn't officially published, maybe from a vanity press run or something, and you want, what, a review of whether this is total crackpottery or not?"

Permalink

"Yeah, if you're up for it."

Permalink

Naomi is up to it and would like to establish clarity on document length, payment details, and that sort of thing.

Permalink

Jane is quite willing to do this; there's a few short proofs that should be arriving to her inbox in PDF, for a trial run, and depending upon how that goes, they could work out something for checking the rest of it.

Permalink

During this discussion, Naomi pauses. "I just realized you never mentioned your name. I don't actually have a good setup for taking anonymized payments?"

Permalink

"If you take Paypal it'll be fine, though that name's a bit, ah, wrong, unfortunately.  Reasons beyond my control, you probably know how it is.  You can call me Jane, I suppose."

Permalink

"Ah, yeah. I can take Paypal."

Permalink

"Yeah."

And she can work out the rest of the details, then.

"Sorry for mucking up on the introductions; I'm a very private person."

Permalink

"No problem! Good luck finding a name you like."

And Jane can send over the file and an initial payment?

Permalink

"Thanks, Naomi."  She can indeed send the file and payment.

 

And then she can wait.

Permalink

Naomi's "earliest convenience" is going to be within the next few days.

Where is Jane's door, exactly?

Permalink

In a closet, though thankfully not in one she needs access to, with Bar's amenities.

Permalink

Well, then Jane should be able to do some door-holding without interruptions from her door's side.

Permalink

"Sounds like you have a plan you want to try? Since you're at a waiting-oriented stage, can we discuss some mathematical exercise problems that confused me?"

Permalink

"Yeah, I do."

She can math, while she waits for the math to be mathed!

Permalink

Griffie appears to have been doing every exercise in the textbook in order, and have done a lot of them. Given the math skills Jane's seen, this has taken a while, as there's a lot to review.

Permalink

Well, she'll do the math review while she waits for the other math review to happen.

Permalink

This one raises fewer questions about where the math came from. Also, Griffie is going to prompt Jane about drinking water during it.

Permalink

"Bwuh?  Huh?  Who?  How?  Why?"

Permalink

"You said you had issues remembering last time so I thought I'd remind you. If it's rude I can stop."

Permalink

"Oh, I did?  Huh.  I suppose I would've.  It's not rude, I was just, not actually expecting that?  And therefore surprised you mentioned it."

She'll have - Bar's recommendation of iced tea flavor?  Cold, no ice.

Permalink

It's peach tea, with some tapioca spheres at the bottom.

Permalink

"Huh, cool."

She gives Bar an affectionate pat.  "Good choice."

Permalink

"I'm glad to hear it. I do my best. :)"

Permalink

Then with that taken care of, it's time for more math, yeah?
