Thanks, terry, for putting the prerelease on yet another day of calculus finals.

Sorry sir....

Come on ArticJedi, it is Calculus! Calculus is WAY more fun than Pokemon!

Take a derivative and set it equal to zero! Add one to your exponent and divide by your new exponent! Don't forget the +C! If you add up an infinite number of things that are almost zero, do you get one?

e^x = 1 + x + x^2/2! + x^3/3! + x^4/4! + x^5/5! ...

Find the antiderivative of 1/(cabin) with respect to cabin!

Yeah, I love finding the equation of the plane parallel to <3,5,7> and passing through the point (1,0,1).

:( Don't think I will be able to make it to this one. It is a bit too far for me, sucks too because I was looking forward to the new cards. Hope everyone has fun though, I will try to make it to the next scheduled league though.

The prerelease was fun because I got to see the new cards that will be out in less than a week from now. So I had a good time. The people who won in each age group had a good deck. I can't blame them. It was good in each age group but I didn't have a good flance in the 15+ deck but the prerelease was fun. I hope that all other people had fun to.

Thanks terry for a great tourney. Me and my dad had great fun. We hope to see you and everyone else down here in oregon this saturday to play in our prerelease. See you soon. :D
