in thread The Perl Crackpot Index

Well my information is based on The Last Sorcerer, which identified 2 men who it seems likely that he had long-term relationships with. However I freely admit to not being a Newton expert, and I have no real idea if the information in that book is accurate.

    As I recall the evidence boils down to Newton's censoring of some letters and two long-term relationships with John Wickins, his roommate from his Trinity days, and a young Swiss mathematician whose name escapes me.

    Could he be gay? Certainly. Are there any number of alternate explanations? Yup.

[Tanktalus]: My basic problem right now is that if I were willing to move, I could be back in Toronto with a pay raise. We have a number of reasons for not wanting to do that.
[marioroy]: I had to backslash the backslash inside qx.
[Tanktalus]: marioroy++ # nice catch
[Lady_Aleena]: marioroy, that makes kinda makes sense.
