Comments: This is regarding the article you've published more than a decade ago about tic-tac-toe. The percentages of 1st player wining, second winning and drawing are wrong. What's done is not checking for random games, but iterating over all the possible combinations of games possible. But that method is wrong because there are games that terminate before occurring 9 moves. For such games your method over-count the occurrences. More correct values would be: 1st: 51.4 % 2nd: 30.5 % Draw: 18.1 %

Comments: Kevin thanks so much for your trip report from the Routeburn Track. I loved the details, and learned so many pieces of useful information, as well as being highly entertained! Wonderful website which I'm going to explore more now as we like hiking in Australia and California (Sierras) and are doing our first trip to NZ (and also first hut experience) next month. Best wishes, happy trails to you! Donna

Comments: Thanks for the hiking info. I've found some useful descriptions of hikes to drag my kids to for my visit to Lassen Volcanic National Park the next few days. I noticed that you've skipped most of the state of Oregon (ranked most under-appreciated state in the union) during your hikes. You should check us out. We've got some great coastal areas and of course Crater Lake.

Comments: This is an amazing resource for anyone who enjoys the outdoors. I have used Kevin's website every couple weeks for a year and it has helped me enjoy life more. I'm frequently inside working with the computer thingy and its a great feeling to get out and roll around in the dirt, trees, flowers. Hope to go on some longer, allnighter hikes someday. I don't have a tv at home but the roku games look really impressive for such a limited platform.

Comments: Came here from google, looking for advice on a week-long camping trip with the kids. We've only done two nights so far (weekends) but we're headed up to Maine when school gets out! (Ages 5.5, 4 and 8 months, currently.) Just wanted to say, that our middle child was 5 months old when she went camping for the first time. I don't know why breastfeeding would deter anyone but it actually makes camping easier since you don't have to worry about sterility, running out of water for formula, you can feed them anywhere at anytime and if they cry in the middle of the night, a nursing session quiets them down fast. :)

Comments: Kevin, Nice job with your website. I stumbled across it while searching for maps and trail descriptions for the Emigrant Wilderness, a place I've been many times and am very fond of. Your trip reports and photos are very informative and a great reminder of how grand and beautiful the Sierras truly are. Happy hiking, Chris Freeman

Comments: We just returned from the Milford Track - 18 inches of rain in 24 hours led to helicopter transport from lodge to lodge on January 1st for the guided walkers(Glade House to Pampoloma for us). Great photos - nice to see what we missed (and what we missed photographing, which was most of the track, due to continuing rain!). Thanks for sharing!
