Update/expansion of my intro last year. I'm now going into fourth year maths rather than theoretical physics, having switched degrees. (That's assuming I pass some exams this week that I deferred due to illness).

I brew beer as a hobby, and code when I have spare time. I enjoy writing science fiction, but I'm a long way away from publishing anything.

Ha ha ha, former $WORK is asking for money back. Almost 4 months after I left.

This - to me - is almost unbelievable. Old $WORK made a mistake TWO FREAKING YEARS AGO. Gave too big a bonus to all employees. Everyone.

They just woke up and are saying, in effect: "Remember that 2018 bonus? Yeah, well, uh... We made a mistake, so please reimburse us. Pronto. Here are the bank details".

F* those f*ing bastards. They will have to talk to my lawyer.

For the last hour there has been a total of one star out. Why can't I live on the night-side of a tidally locked planet like the majority of the universe?

Anybody on fediverse want to recommend me a ? Preferably a brand that I can pick up cheap on ebay, but I'm open to splurging on something that will last a long time.

The worst thing I find about the summer is that despite so many clear warm nights for stargazing, they're so short and start so late.

"In that case," said Brutha triumphantly, "what does the turtle stand on?"
The tortoise gave him a blank stare.
"It doesn't standing on anything," it said. "It's a turtle, for heaven's sake. It swims. That's what turtles are for."

"Nothing amazing about a sphere," said the tortoise. "Come to that, a turtle is a perfect shape."
"A perfect shape for what?"
"Well, the perfect shape for a turtle, to start with," said Om. "If it was shaped like a ball, it'd be bobbing to the surface the whole time."
"But it's heresy to say the world is flat," said Brutha.

"I told you, I never made the world," said Om. "Why should I make the world? It was here already. And if I did make a world. I wouldn't make it a ball. People'd fall off. All the sea'd run off the bottom."
"Not if you told it to stay on."
"Hah! Will you hark at the man!"
"Besides, the sphere is a perfect shape," said Brutha. "Because in the Book of—"
