  1. Is this site functional? I can't find any comments past Sep, 2014, even though I know I made one a month or two ago.

  2. The link to the solution of 13.24b is missing a ".html" suffix and thus doesn't work.

    1. These links were to an Oxford University site which I have no control over. I will contact them and ask if it is possible to have access to the original solutions. The number of exercises they contributed was very small thank goodness.

    2. Found them and restored links to 2.1, 2.2 - 2.5, 2.6 - 2.8, and 3.1-3.4.

  4. Links to deant's solutions to problem 19.20 are set to his 19.18 solution instead. This is true for both the pdf and docx links.

  5. Exer. 22.3 links to 21.16 rather than 22.3. Also, there is no link to Exer. 22.6b by Roberto.

  6. There are no links on your pages for Exer. 22.2b, 22.15, 22.37, 21.8, 21.12, 18.4 (by deant, but, a link within the link is now defunct; I hope you have it downloaded), 14.1, 14.2, 14.4b, 14.6b, 14.7b, 14.8b, 14.9, 14.10b, 14.11, 14.14, 14.18, 14.22, 14.24, 14.29, 14.32, 14.32b, 14.32c.

  8. vasco did us all a wonderful favor by undertaking this task of organizing the solutions. Just from what little I have done, I know that it was an extraordinarily time-consuming task, and I thank him so much for doing it. Even with a few overlooked links, he has helped my reading of the book so much by saving me much time hunting.

    There are more overlooked links beyond Chapter 22 and whoever continues this task can find them as well as I, so I'm not going to document any more.

    If vasco can reopen his site so that new readers such as myself can make postings, that would be great, but I recognize that it is a daunting task to maintain such a site. If someone has access to some site that might last for several more years, I would be happy to contribute many of my own solutions including problems that no one has yet posted for and also updates and corrections I have found to existing solutions. I am also sure that I have made my share of mistakes and would welcome reviews so that I can continue to learn this stuff. -- MatrixBud, vwx@sbcglobal.net

  9. Hi matrixbud
    Thanks for all your positive and encouraging comments above. As soon as I can I will make good all the broken/missing links that you have pointed out.
    I had thought myself that it would be a good idea to have a site where people like you could continue to contribute to the exercises in RTR, and I will now consider doing so.
    Thanks again
    PS I do not check this blog everyday and so sometimes it may take a few days before I reply to your comments.

  13. Vasco,

    I twice tried responding to your last post to me which, strangely, you posted in the 2009 Welcome directory. Each time my post had disappeared by the next day. So, I thought I would try posting now in your 2014 directory. I hope this post sticks. If it does, I'll provide a link to my solutions. I also discovered another web page of solutions that you may be interested to know about.

  16. Hi everybody
    It seems that Bud Simrin has been having some problems posting on this blog. As far as I know this is nothing to do with the way I have set this blog up. It is completely open to anyone who wants to contribute.
    Thanks to Bud for going on to the Blogger forum to try and sort his problem out, and to Chuck Croll for helping him out. If you follow the link in Chuck's post of September 28, 2015 at 7:37 PM, you will be able to see what problems Bud has been experiencing and maybe contribute some thoughts of your own. I hope it all gets sorted soon.

  17. Hi Bud
    I thought you wanted to submit some links to your solutions and some others you had found. Please go ahead now that posting seems to be working OK.

  18. Vasco,

    I have tried and tried. Perhaps you could email me directly at vwx@sbcglobal.net, so that I can contact you directly. I'll post this short comment from time to time and maybe one day it will stick. P.S. I even get confirmation emails from google that I have posted, but the posts are erased nonetheless.

      I thought I already had contacted you directly a few weeks ago on the above email address.

      Are you there? I don't understand why you have so many problems. What browser are you using? Have you tried posting on other Blogger blogs? With what results?

  19. I think this is probably related to the fact that Google want everyone to post comments through google+. I have had to remove Google+ commenting from by blog as once set up with wont allow any other comments.
