i mean it this time.

here it is in code.

$latex ii =

\begin{pmatrix}

\begin{pmatrix} 0 & 2 \\ 1 & 2\end{pmatrix}&

\begin{pmatrix} 1 & 1 \\ 0 & 1\end{pmatrix}&

\\

\begin{pmatrix} 1 & 0 \\ 2 & 1\end{pmatrix}&

\begin{pmatrix} 2 & 2 \\ 1 & 0\end{pmatrix}

\end{pmatrix}

$

$latex i =

\begin{pmatrix}

\begin{pmatrix} 1 & 2 \\ 1 & 0\end{pmatrix}&

\begin{pmatrix} 2 & 1 \\ 0 & 2\end{pmatrix}&

\\

\begin{pmatrix} 2 & 0 \\ 2 & 2\end{pmatrix}&

\begin{pmatrix} 0 & 2 \\ 1 & 1\end{pmatrix}

\end{pmatrix}

$

$latex iii =

\begin{pmatrix}

\begin{pmatrix} 0 & 1 \\ 2 & 2\end{pmatrix}&

\begin{pmatrix} 1 & 0 \\ 1 & 1\end{pmatrix}&

\\

\begin{pmatrix} 1 & 2 \\ 0 & 1\end{pmatrix}&

\begin{pmatrix} 2 & 1 \\ 2 & 0\end{pmatrix}

\end{pmatrix}

$

$latex iv =

\begin{pmatrix} 0 & 1 \\ 2 & 1\end{pmatrix}

\end{pmatrix}

trying one more time.

uh-oh. carriage-return has been given a weird function.

*now* what? i clicked a +-sign button &c. supposedly

something about a block. nothing happened. trying again.

okay. putting in a graphics block works like that.

this is allegedly "preformatted". which, okay, at least doesn't punish you with the carriage-return-line-feed misfeature, but, still, won't even let me write "preformatted" without touching the mouse to tell the damn thing i actually mean what i actually type. over and over. and this is a word i *copied* from *this ghastly format itself*, which would make it even funnier if it were funny at all instead of inspiring of rage & despair.

another block now. okay. maybe i’ll be back.

so here’s the thing i’ve been in the process

of memorizing ever since i worked it out.

i *almost* know it now. this interface sucks.

bye now.
