        The topography relative to the radius has (of course) been grossly exaggerated ...

        I actually find it more interesting that you can already discern the Mid-Atlantic Ridge.

      Updating my relativity lectures. After two years you still realise new things and think of better ways of presentation (hopefully ...).

      Re-exam on thursday. Will I be amazed by the knowledge acquired by the students or not? ;)

      150 exams almost corrected. Am I making too difficult exams?

      It turns out it is better to pass logL to a program expecting logL than it is to pass it -2logL... How weird! :p
