Some people come here for my Fortran page. Others want my PhD thesis titled Quantum Waveguide Theory (which is available from the UWA library) or my Honours thesis titled Quantum Chaos in Second Harmonic Generation - Stu.

Bloody bike

Been back on the bike for 3 days and this morning, I got 4 punctures. I fixed two, pumped it up, jumped back on and got about 20m before I heard the fft-fft-fft of a pucture. I fixed that one, got back on and got about another 20m. Yet another puncture. I repaired the 4th one and managed to get to work about 30mins late.

To top it all off, it started raining while I was fixing my 2nd pucture. Anyway, got to work safely, a little wet and dirty.

Hard at work

When I left ANUSF they bought me a bar fridge for my new office. The bar fridge arrived about a week before I did, which gave my, then, new office colleagues a hint of things to come

The little poster on the front is a requirement of CSIRO. I had to get formal permission to have drinks on a friday and I have to provide food, light beer, soft drinks and have the poster in a prominent position.

All part of the brave new world. Leads to better efficiency I hear ;)

Back on the bike

Its been a little over a week since the crash, but I'm back on the bike today. It feels good. Still a bit stiff and sore, but that should go soon.

Helmet causes bike accident

For years I've had a firm belief that wearing a bike helmet causes accidents. Within 3 weeks of the purchase of my bike helmet, I was cycling home and my helmet decided to take a death dive over my handle bars (when I was doing about 30km/h). Of course, since it was strapped to my head, I had to follow. Since my bike was attached to my feet (you know, that stupid bloody cleat/peddles) it also had to follow. I was left lying on my laptop, helmet on the grount and bike on me. Thankfully, I'd had a few drinks and didn't feel anything until a few hours later. A quick trip to the hospital a few days of a really stiff neck and I'm fine.
