I've been getting quite a few hits on DLMSY from people searching for info about EEE lately. I thought perhaps he had some new claim or column in the Manila Times.

I guess the physics Nobel didn't come through. Maybe next year. :)

Yes, i just signed up for stat counter and I am having fun checking the stats I get, and there have been a lot (relatively speaking since I do not get a lot of traffic) of people checking out EEE. I have no idea why.

Yup, he joins a long list of distinguished persons who were not awarded a nobel prize including Mahatma Gandhi

EE is never going to win the Nobel Prize....but he is jolly good fun to read I must say.....

EEE is claiming that he was cheated out of this years Nobel prize. Definitely delusional. I wonder if anybody in the Kalayaan college actually reads about EEE, why is he still teaching there?
