I've pretty much left the forum, but I was cleaning out my hard disk and found this old voicemail from the Wizard from 2008, which I thought shows just how much math is a part of his life.

For posterity, the file was created 2/27/08, and I'm not sure how much time elapsed between my getting the voicemail and making the file, but in any event, it's likely that we're very close to the ten-year anniversary of this message.

"This is the Wizard. I got Paul's message, and it's unclear to me if you guys want to be picked up, so I guess I'm asking if you want to be picked up, and if so, your best estimate [of] when you will want to be picked up, and I understand it's a random variable, and I'm just looking for the mean and maybe a standard deviation of that random variable. Thanks."

I remember you posting or playing that and yes, that needs to be memorialized!

Yeah, odiousgambit, the audio was in the February 27, 2008 newsletter, which the Wizard approved before I sent it out, so I knew that he didn't object to it being made public.

Zcore13's comment is symptomatic of why I left the forum.

I was hoping you saw the light about how much better America is under President Trump and you were busy working on his re-election campaign.

But seriously you should stick around, everyone has a unique view to add and while I disagree with you on almost everything, the forum is a better place with you posting.
