@ringo My random writings are here:

There's a lot more, but you need to hunt a little.

I need to do some work, but I'll be back later.

@ringo The distinguishing feature of mainstream scientific theories isn't that they are accepted by the mainstream, it's *why* they are accepted. It's because they make testable predictions ... they are falsifiable. The brief glimpse I had of this looks more like it's trying to explain everything and the connections, but unless it can make testable predictions, its usefulness is limited.

Probably a good read, though.

@ringo I'm generally unwilling to make snap decisions, but the web site makes me think my time is better spent trying to make a start on my existing tsundoku, and trying to write some of the 30 or more articles and posts that I have queued.

I hope you find it an interesting read, but suggest you keep an air of detachment ... from the little I've seen it's very much "not mainstream".

@ringo We are long-standing friends, have known each other for many years.

Hi! My name is Colin and I am a mathematician.

If you’ve got a problem, and no-one else can help, and the A-Team is out buying a “No fools are pitied in this vehicle overnight” sticker, maybe you can hire* me.

* You don’t always have to hire me. Quick stuff? No charge.

@Rod916 ... and in six months, or less, so will Australia. It's getting worse, and will continue to do so.

@Rod916 I would start a small forest fire.

When fighting *large* forest fire, "back-burning" is effectively lighting a strategic *small* forest fire in the right place at the right time to starve the *large* forest fire of fuel and bring it under control.

Some passes of the visible from the UK overnight - I'll tweet/toot warnings closer to the time

@eloisa So ...

1. We've chatted in the past, and I may yet take up your offer to talk in PT-PT. WRT witches ... "a people is a people" ... I deal with people as people.

2. No, I'm not a 'bot.

3. No, I didn't lie.

@ryan Hmmm ... an intriguing thought, but fortunately my nerd-snipery alarm has gone off and saved me.

But an interesting thought.

An idle question ...

Suppose you know the Monarchs of England starting with William I in 1066 through to the current queen (1952-...). Suppose you know their years of accession and demise.

Suppose you're interested in extending this knowledge.

What would *you* add?
