Classes start here tomorrow and I am in charge for the first time of the advanced commutative algebra course, so I spent many hours trying to decide what to include and how (and will spent many more hours along the following months...)

I surfed today through Chapter 5 in your new book, starting with the wonderfully clear dialog that introduces the subject. I liked your presentation a lot and found it very complete and interesting (besides amusing :-).

Thanks again and congratulations!
