I finally figured out how to do things in geometry; multiplying vectors, finding the closest distance between a point and a line, all that stuff. I know it's a little late! 🤣 It's not easy since I never had a strong basis on that, but it's rewarding and fun in the end. Luckily I found the resources I needed.

Fun fact, during the learning process, I found a website dated in 1988 about vectors... not sure if it's citing a source in 1988 or it was indeed established and made in 1988 and has been running till now... I kept thinking about the cost of running a web server and a domain for more than 30 years 🤔

It'd be interesting to talk to the owner.

Seems like that the domain was registered in 2011:

who.is/whois/paulbourke.net

Ah, but the look of the website is so dated, it made me think that it was indeed made in 1988 🤔😂

Yes, it's crazy. It could be that the domain expired at some point and then the owner renewed it later on :D
