smiley - erm... Tinkerbell? I'd like to point out that you're in danger of annoying the gods of fate... smiley - winkeye

I mean... Vicki's nickname. She pulled it out of a bag of scrabble tiles, so it's either the ultimate question to Life, the Universe and Everything or providence. In either case, it reads "Eomando"... smiley - ok

Hmm... is it just me or are there almost as many people registered for the oxford meet as for the official january meet? smiley - smiley

I will come *if* my thesis isn't being very behind and needing lots of work.

The bookbinders does good food (great christmas dinners) and sells peanuts in their shells. The Lamb and Flag is deteriorating a little, but is right by my department, so I could work on thesis till meeting you lot.

I don't like the taste, the smell or the effect.

I do like chianti, but at most 3/4 of a glass and it's a bit expensive to buy for 3/4 of a glass.

Anything with big walls in Oxford blocks signal - so the Turf isn't very good for signal and don't expect much signal while walking around colleges.

Hello, I've been naughty and not read ANY of the backlog, being as I am in the Open Access Centre using awful computers. But I'm assuming this is the place to jump on the bandwagon - so I'm in!

Please let me know what the final plans are. I will endevour to go whereever it is, but please make sure it's not on the 20th of October because my band may be opening for Fugazi that night.

Just thought I'd mention it. smiley - winkeye

2legs - Hey, babe, take a walk on the wild side...

What's the thesis on? smiley - yikes : I'm still hoping my supervisor will have the decency to reply to the (or one of the) sixty plus Emails I sent him over the last three months to attempt to find out if he has submitted my thesis yet, or still has it in the huge pile of stuff in his trash can smiley - ermsmiley - huhsmiley - grrsmiley - smiley

Driving of the annual cycle in lower-stratospheric tropical temperatures
by localised breaking of synoptic-scale waves. A comparison of an observationally forced reanalysis model (not in balance) and a balanced dynamical core model with climatological boundary conditions.

It's basically on these two equations (written in LaTex)

\usepackage{amsmath}
\newcommand{\vbs}{\overline{v}^\ast}
\newcommand{\wbs}{\overline{\omega}^\ast}
\newcommand{\divf}{\mathbf{\nabla.F}}

Thermodynamic Equation:
\begin{multline}
\frac{\partial \overline{\theta}}{\partial t} =
- \frac{\vbs}{R_e}\frac{\partial \overline{\theta}}{\partial \phi}
- \wbs \frac{\partial \overline{\theta}}{\partial p}
- \frac{\partial}{\partial p}\left( \frac {\overline{v'\theta'} \; \overline{\theta}_\phi}{R_e \overline{\theta}_p}+ \overline{\omega'\theta'}\right)
\\ \ + \overline{Q}_{LW} + \overline{Q}_{SW} + \overline{Q}_{remainder}
\end{multline}

Zonal Momentum Equation:
\begin{multline}
\frac{\partial \overline{u}}{\partial t} =
\vbs \left( f - \frac{1}{R_e \cos \phi} \frac{\partial}{\partial \phi} \left( \overline{u} \cos \phi \right) \right)
- \wbs \frac{\partial \overline{u}}{\partial p}
+ \frac{1}{R_e \cos \phi} \divf
\\ \ + \overline{X}_{GWD.jump} + \overline{X}_{GWD.stress} + \overline{X}_{GWD.lee} + \overline{X}_{remainder}
\end{multline}

Cue for everyone to wince majorly at the maths and tell 2legs off for asking...

*looks innocent*
But it says Eomando? smiley - winkeye

Mr t you're opening for Fugazi??? Cool! How did you swing that? WOw smiley - bigeyes This is Pooter right? Can I come along and be a groupie??? Please???? Pleaaaaasssseeee???? I am the official founder of the fan club with badges and the like... admittesdly as yet they remain in my head but all the same I'm the only one who contemplated it smiley - winkeye

*looks baffled at mathematicy stuff*
smiley - erm Huh? smiley - winkeye
Sorry ├ćndr you're names down, you've got to go smiley - winkeye

2legs.... consider yourself well and truely told off smiley - grr

I can't believe GD & smiley - lighthouse won't be there. (Do we need to start a campaign for a GreyDesk smiley?)

I think so. I'll have to arrange some accomodation. I'm almost teatotal and will certainly be driving away from the pub if that is an incentive to anyone to put me up.

I'm also house trained smiley - biggrin

An Oxford meet sounds wonderful but as GD said that looks like the only two weeks I can get away from w**k so we will probably be away smiley - wah
