Hi Sal,
This is fair enough. Just wanted to thank you for the great (and informative!) reply.
You note that there aren't many jobs in theoretical physics  part of the reason why I'd want to do a computer science degree also (a combined degree with science [maths/physics] if that is what I end up doing!).
So by the gist of it, analysis is essentially a course of proofs? Are proofs tedious or enjoyable (no, I admit, the only sort of "proofs" I have seen or dealt with is, say, the derivation of the quadratic formula)?
You say  don't bet the (psychological) farm on getting a double degree. What do you mean by this? What is a psychological farm???
I think, where you say I am getting too far ahead of myself, I think there is reason. I always like to know about, I suppose, the end goal (and the journey itself) because if I think I'm not going to enjoy it (or possibly hate it), then I'm not likely going to pursue that subject, if I can avoid it! That's my reasoning anyway.
I'll look into solid state physics, as I said earlier, but perhaps I had better wrap up here before I start rambling on!
Cheers,
Davin
