Maplesoft just posted a new page giving more details on the upcoming version of Maple 11 for Windows Vista.

Maplesoft is currently working to ensure that Maple 11 is compatible with Windows Vista.

This web page contains information describing the current status of Maple 11 support for Vista and how you will be able to receive it when it becomes available. This information will be updated frequently as Maplesoft prepares to support Vista.
  The Vista version of Maple 11 will be available in the coming weeks.  Current Maple 11 users will be notified via email as soon as it is available.  Users can also check this page for updates.
  It will be available to all users running Maple 11 via a download that will be accessible through this web page. Users will need their purchase code used at the time of purchase to download the software. There will also be an option to order a CD copy.  More details to come.

Here is another great comic from XKCD, I hope you like it:

I just found this site over on O'Reilly Radar. It lists the numbers 0 to 9999 and describes mathematical properties for that number. Here are the first few numbers to give you an idea of what is there:

  1. is the multiplicative identity.
  2. is the only even prime.
  3. is the number of spatial dimensions we live in.
  4. is the smallest number of colors sufficient to color al planar maps.
  5. 5 is the number of Platonic solids.
  6. is the smallest perfect number.
  7. is the smallest number of faces of a regular polygon that is not constructible by straightedge and compass.
  8. is the largest cube in the Fibonacci sequence.
  9. is the maximum number of cubes that are needed to sum to any positive integer.

I just found this. It's not quite Math or Maple related, but I'm sure most of you will appreciate it.
