The working week would be somewhat abbreviated, but I still managed to get a bit done. I now had data in a format that would be useful for generating some plots about the indirect detection rates. I spent the first few days of the week ironing out a few bugs, before having to chase through… Continue reading Week 101: BBC Proms Weekend 8
Monday started the week with Jacqueline and I both still in London. We decided to stay down in London until Wednesday. The sole reason for this was due to the ticket arrangements for the Last Night of the Proms, to be held in early September. To get our promming tickets for classical music’s largest annual… Continue reading Week 99: BBC Proms Weekend 5 (Part 2) and Wimpole Hall
After work on Monday, I went to collect my cricket whites one last time for the summer. Darwin College had made the final of the MCR cricket league.

She insisted… Continue reading Week 90: A Week of Sport
The week of work was defined by me trying to decipher a long series of outputted formulae from my computer program. Having a long list of equations is great, but the output format was obfuscating the underlying physics, and understanding it all was not a simple task. By the end, I had enough to go… Continue reading Week 87: Falkland Palace
