Woot! Thanks for this resource!

This seems like a strange choice. Would there be anyone interested in
editting these notes who wouldn't know LaTeX? LaTeX is as much of a
lingua franca in mathematical typesetting as English is in scientific
communications. I don't know ODT, but I can't imagine that it can
produce output nearly as beautiful as LaTeX's.

I'll distribute it in my own Spanish-speaking maths school. Maybe
someone will take interest. :)

Er, a strange request. My school's network blocks almost all ports,
especially strange ports such as 9673. I was hoping that it would show
up in the standard HTTP port 80, but it didn't. Can you put the file
in port 80?
