Don't forget to check the site
map. It is typically more up to date than the following.
What is your domain of interest?
- Why, thank you! If you want to learn more about me, my ego page should tell you all. Or you
can read my life's story (in
French). For more recent news, see my WebLog. If you want to know what I
look like, this page has some
lousy pictures of me. You might also try to analyse my weird
personality through the stuff I write, or simply
read what I wrote about
- Check my general computers
page for more. If you are interested in Linux, you might like to
have a look at my Linux page and
my programs page. If it is
theoretical computer science that interests you,
my Quines page and its
page should interest you, as well as
the Unlambda page if your
interests border on hackerdom.
- If you're looking for my professional Web site, it is
elsewhere. Otherwise, my main
math page is the place to go and has all the relevant links
(unfortunately, it hasn't been maintained in a long time).
You might also enjoy
my Mandelbrot set images
and videos and
my DVD of
cubic surfaces animations.
- In a hurry? Read my favorite poems (in various
languages); and if you like this particular
poem, you can find plenty
more by the same author. Can't read French? FitzGerald's Rubáiyát of Omar
Khayyám are in English (more or less translated from the
Persian). If you can read both English and French, you might like to
compare Edgar Allan Poe's
Domain of Arnheim with its French translation by
Charles Baudelaire; if you can only read one language, you can only
have half the fun!
Of course, after that, I try to plug some of my own stuff. If
you want a sample of my writing, this short story should be a
good start: it exists in English, French and even in Russian! I believe this short story (in French)
and this fairy tale (in
English) to be among the best things I wrote. For something longer,
try this novel (in French),
provided you like heroic fantasy. For a longer listing of what I
wrote, try here.
- Thoughts? Science in general? Philosophy?
- I have plenty of thought on a lot of different topics collected in
my Best Of
GroTeXdieck (all are in French). Other than that, this page explains the
meaning of the Universe, and this
one tells all about Time. This page talks about the
US electoral system. And this complains
about the excesses of Intellectual Property.
I am also interested in Zen
- Gay themes?
- Do you know about the story of the rainbow flag?
You might like to read this fairy tale (in English) about
princes and love. Or, if your vision is somewhat less romantic,
perhaps this erotic short
story (in French), or again this (sad) short story (in French).
- Something else?
- You can test your knowledge with
this general knowledge
test or any of its various
companions. If you like interactive stuff, you can try
solving these riddles.
If you're after music, you might like
my MIDI files. If you like
funny quotes, here is
my personal selection
(frequently updated) from the Fortune program. If you
want to see some pretty
pictures, this page shows
some images I made with the GIMP;
for more pretty images, also see
my Mandelbrot set images
and videos. If phonetics interest you, you might like to learn
about the International
- None of the above?
- Well, sorry then. Maybe my bookmarks can show you some
interesting places on the Internet.
