Math History: another historical link

Forums: 

In fact this is an answer to the request

which was posted to

http://planetmath.org/?op=getmsg;id=7006

But since we have a new forum devoted entirely to Math History I decided to post the link here:

http://www.mathpages.com/home/ihistory.htm

The whole site MathPages.com seems quite interesting, but I have no idea who makes it, and the "about" link is missing there. Does anyone knows some background for it?

knowledge can become a science
only with a help of mathematics


Personal blogs are increasingly becoming important
in documenting aspects of the Math History. Concerning
Egyptian arithmetic, dating to 2,000 BCE, three of my blogs:

http://egyptianmath.blogspot.com
http://reisnerpapyri.blogspot.com
http://akhmimwoodentablet.blogspot.com

show previously vaguely reported texts, Akhmim Wooden
Tablet, and related texts, the RMP and the medical
texts (that contain 2,000 medical prescriptions dating
to 1,500 BCE) that contain under reported segments, one
being the oldest known form of remainder arithmetic.

Best Regards to all,
