In the last few days of camp this summer, a big folder of puzzles got posted in the hall. In the folder was a collection of Erich Friedman’s Hamiltonian Mazes puzzles.
The whole site is a terrific snapshot of the old internet, with its generosity and quirk. I love the little personal nuggets Erich includes on his homepage (I’m nostalgic for homepages!):
I am a Libertarian and an Atheist. I consider myself a Feminist, and I’m a member of the ACLU. I have memorized the first 50 digits of Pi. I am an INTJ and I Juggle. I build card houses, and I’m interested in my Family Tree.
For the record: I am a Capitalist and a Religious Jew. I consider myself a Feminist, and I’m a patron of NYPL. I recently memorized the Largest Known Prime Number. I sometimes get Moody and Sad but I don’t Juggle. I’m interested in my Family.
I own the largest Puzzle Collection in Florida.
Really, lots of wonderful stuff on his site. In the past I’ve been more interested in theory-laden areas of math than puzzles and problems (I like my math how I like my philosophy) but I always have fun when I do find time for these sorts of things.
Like these square tilings. They’re gorgeous!
Anyway, a wonderful website. Enjoy!
