I have been spending idle moments recently editing posts on this blog to get around quirks of the WordPress style, as described here.

Following yesterday’s post, I’ve been noting down posts which contain lists. Here is a partial list:

- Conference walks, 2: lists of walkers
- Kilvington’s
*Sophismata*: the list - Mathematical Structures: the aftermath: some student responses in the exam
- Primitivity: equivalent definitions of this concept
- Mathematical Structures, 0: the topics in this new module
- Comment from David Wood to “In the sky with diamonds”: a list of diamond open-access journals
- A train journey: some memorable train journeys I’ve taken
- Trent Park: campuses or departments closed by the University of Middlesex
- Student questionnaires, 2: the questions students are asked
- Gresham College: its established chairs
- Comment from John Baez on “An astronomical puzzle”: list of technical terms related to “brightness”
- Information, postmodernism and time signatures: a list of graphical ways to present information, from
*Information is Beautiful*by David McCandless - Female mathematicians: answers by female mathematicians to the question “What keeps your interest fresh?”
- 300: most viewed posts on my blog, up to the start of 2012
- 50 proofs to read before you die and comments: suggestions for members of the list of the title
- The prehistory of the Higman-Sims graph: the known triangle-free strongly regular graphs
- Lex poems: first lines of poems whose first word is “Love”, from Q’s
*Oxford Book of English Verse* - Submission and publication of mathematics papers: journals in which Terry Tao and Wendelin Werner had published (in 2009)

Off-topic, this exercise is not just navel-gazing; one of its pleasures is re-reading and savouring some of the comments.
