It’s about time I was blogging again. I’ve been updating various bits of software here and there, and remembered that none of the links on the resources page were working. I’ve moved all the materials that were there over to Google Drive, and re-linked the files. There’s a variety of stuff there, much of it […]
“I’ve just spent a cheerful hours of my time writing a program on my computer that will tell me instantly what the volume of the mound was. It’s a very neat and sexy program with all sorts of pop-up menus and things, and the advantage of doing it the way I have is that on […]

I’ve always been keen on having lots of posters in my room, that relate specifically to what the students will study while they’re with me.
