notes by Scott Williams
Thanks to K.P.Hart for simplifying my inverse limit construction with a 1-point compactification (see 6 above).
If the "gif" picture of the proof does not load, you can download a jpeg at http://www.math.buffalo.edu/~sww/0papers/cantor-spaces.jpg
12/19/99: Thanks to Murray Bell for mentioning Richard S. Pierce to me. I shoulda looked at the Handbook of Boolean Algebras Elsevier Science Pub. (1989). In his Countable Boolean Algebras survey, pages 775-857, Pierce proves on page 790 that there are c-many countable Boolean Algebras.
