  • Letters I wrote when I first arrived in Cambridge.

Other items may appear as I find various items needing re-homing....

...One could not be a successful scientist without realising that, in contrast to the popular conception supported by newspapers and mothers of scientists, a goodly number of scientists are not only narrow-minded and dull, but also just stupid....

Oh and these pictures are pretty amazing...

A set of test pictures for monitor alignment.

A little bit of motivation...

The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotion, spends himself in a worthy cause; who at best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement; and who at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who have never tasted victory or defeat.

-- Teddy Roosevelt

or, if you prefer, Yoda (yeah I know kinda sad really)

Do or do not, there is no try.
