I've been hanging around the forum for about 6 weeks now, and just realized this thread was here. Sorry for not introducing myself sooner.
I have an interest in physics and astronomy. I have a ** degree in physics from the 1970's. Since then I've been developing software, and astronomy is a hobby. I am currently working at trying to understand the math used in the Almagest. I have books by Otto Neugebauer and G. J. Toomer that are helping a lot on that front. But I have to say, long division in base-60 is a pain in the neck.
I also do technical training in the world of Java, and comic theater in the evenings. If my posts sometimes come across as a bit pompous, please forgive me, I'm trying to develop a character.
