About an hour ago I received the following email from the conference organizers:
Thanks again for your interest we would love to see you there in March.
Needless to say, I'm very disappointed and a little discouraged. I'm not as motivated to attend the conference as I was a week or two ago, but I might be by the end of the week. There would be some good networking opportunities.
As for the Pythagorean paper, I'll post it on this site in a couple of days. There were a few revisions that I needed to do to correct the total probability exceeding 1.0, and when I finish those, I'll post them as well.
