Meh... Benoît Mandelbrot died two days ago, apparently.

I'd be lying if I said I was terribly affected by this, to be honest, but he WAS a famous mathematician, and one whose name non-mathematicians recognized as well, and as such, I think he warrants a mention.

Bye, Benoît, and thanks for everything you did.

Well, at least he can go down in history as one of the few mathematicians with a song named after him.

Rest in Peace.

The ones with smiley faces are free downloads :) The rest you can still listen to the full song too (it just costs $1 to download it).

*nods* I may take a look, but I'm not really looking for more music at the moment. :) Or rather, I'm not looking for the effort and time it'd take to go through the stuff and see what I like and all that.

Thanks, though!

*s* It's probably less obvious if you're not German.
