I am the Englishman who went up a hill and came down with all the bananas.

Hello, I'm me[Andy]g, and you seem to be called - interesting. Welcome to my personal space. I used to have no brackets, but other people around here seem to, so I decided to join in. Especially since Joe asked me to become a MathEd at the h2g2 Mathematical Institute... well, I couldn't help it after that! smiley - smiley So I guess that's why I'm here! Well, okay. I have to say a huge thanks to J'au-æmne as well smiley - hug

I thought it was about time to write something more realistic than what was here before. So with that in mind, I thought that I could direct you to my website - the first time I've been able (with some help) to design a web page that actually looks any good! smiley - winkeye

Am I supposed to say something about what I'm interested in? I suppose that comes down to three (maybe four) things. Music, maths, computers and sport. In that order. Thankfully.

You could go and look at what I studied for my first degree at the University of Durham if you're really that interested... and good luck understanding any of it... if you're really interested in maths... well, I'm a MathEd and a RMG, so talk to me and I'll see what you can do at the Maths Institute and the Maths Lab. smiley - smiley

And to continue a theme - this is what I studied last year.smiley - smiley

Yes, I'm an eternal student. I'm now studying plate tectonics and mantle convection models in the Earth Sciences department at the University of Leeds. One day I might even get out of higher education and go and find a proper job.

Anything else I can say? Well... ((1*6)+9+0+6)*2 = 42, if you care about that sort of thing. And just to show off - (1*6*9)+0-(6*2) = 42 also. But apart from that, my mind is blank. Come back another time and I'm sure it'll be even more interesting. smiley - winkeye

Ooh.. no... I thought of another one: (1*6)+(9*0)+(6^2)=42. Excellent. smiley - smiley And then there's (-1+6)*9+0-(6/2)=42 - is that one allowed? And ((-1+6+9)*(0+6))/2=42 - hmm, do I win a prize for the most... ? smiley - erm

A clever gadget - see your list of conversations.

Have a look at my edited entries on Countdown, Delirious? and Evariste Galois.

I've become a Thingite! "Thingite Scanner of Subterranean Surfaces" to be more precise. I proudly believe T****day should be renamed "Thing" immediately!

Oh, and I play chess at h2g2's Chess Club, and I'm in the h2g2 Celebdaq league too.

If you want to talk to me outside of h2g2, click here to e-mail me.

I won a round of H2G2Fone!1

1Hmm, this needs revising, but I can't think of a better way of sounding surprised.
