wonderful! i have knuth's art of computer programming work on pdf, but
would like to get the real thing. what i've read so far is superb! he
takes such care both in presentation as well as follow-through.

nice to meet a pioneer of the industry hugh! while you were introducing
your fractals, i was only oooing and awwwing at the macintosh which had
just come out in the mid 80s. :D
