Another working week begins. No fire alarms today; nothing exciting at all, in fact. Did some more marking. Hopefully will finish that by tomorrow afternoon. I attended the complex systems lecture as usual. This one was on economics from a complex systems point of view. It seemed very high-level to me, but then my mind Read more about 2003-09-15 12:38:29[…]
This evening I finished reading The Three Musketeers. I found it to be enthralling, inspiring, romantic and tragic all at once.

Wow! The fire alarm went off today, and for once there was a real, actual, flames and smoke FIRE! Admittedly the fire was in the garden outside GP South and not inside.

Earlier on in the day, I had a meeting with Jaga and RW about the paper we’re writing. It’s almost there, Read more about 2003-09-08 12:44:50[…]
Nigel and I spent another weekend in the sunny climes of Caloundra. We took Dad to a jazz breakfast, which Mum organised, for Father’s Day. We gave Dad a bottle of red wine and a bottle of port. At the jazz breakfast we ended up winning another bottle of red wine in a raffle, so Read more about 2003-09-07 22:57:17[…]
I finally got around to seeing A Clockwork Orange last night. It was on the shelf in the video store for once! I don’t have time to say much about it; just recording the fact that I’ve seen it. A fantastic film.
