Quietness

Anybody here still? Hmm. Well, news from me is that I passed my finals for my degree course. :-) Next year I'm having a year "out", doing some work and some travelling. And after that I hope to start a PhD.

How's everyone else doing?

    Great to hear from you. PH has gotten kind of dull lately. Glad to have a familiar voice back.

    Everything is good here. Congrats on the degree and good luck in your travels.

    Heh. Well, my hope longer term is to stay in the wonderful world of academia (which has its own challenges, sure) and out of the somewhat messier world of business. So PhD is a step towards doing that. Even if I don't get to do that, however, I think I'll really enjoy the process of getting it. Sometimes it's the journey that matters, not the destination. ;-)

    I spent about 30 years 'in the wonderful world of academia' and left it 9 years ago without any regrets. Believe me, it's not much better than world of business. But it's just my opinion and if you really like it, go ahead and have fun no matter what! :-)

    I'm interested to know what about it put you off, since maybe it's things I've just not spotted.

    The biggest problem was money. It's quite difficult [b]in this country[/b] to get money to conduct your experiments. Without having money you have to work as employee of somebody else. This way did not work for me at all. I used to work as independent researcher back to the USSR almost 20 years and working under supervision of other person was very uncomfortable for me. It happens because, when you have your own ideas that do not follow your boss' ideas, it always causes problems/conflicts. That what was happened to me.
  • I see i am in good electronic company, what with all these guys who have Phds and Masters! I am still studying for my Bsc Mathematics and statistics and am already thinking of going into politics, not business. If anything, here in Zimbabwe, political office pays as much as business and academics, all one needs to do watch one's back a lot cross a few people's paths! ;-)
    How is th world cup for every one? For me it has been fantastic, the incessant power cuts over here notwithstanding. We have to make do with power rationing and sometimes have no power during games, so those who are monied make do with generators (I had to starve myself to buy one).
    Hey Jonathan , you made me think of the days when was in primary school, some guy told us that Phd is an acronym for Permanent Head Damage!

    Heh, I think it's already too late for me on that front. ;-) And nice to hear from you again. Late follow up on the world cup thing - disappointed; I thought England should have got to the semi finals. But we were not good. We've lots of good players, but it seems we ain't so good at playing as a team. My favourite games to watch were Mexico vs Argentina and France vs Brazil.

    Yeah - we WC was a big dissapointment for me. I thought I was a big football fan - but I kind of lost interest.

    The best game for me was Italy vs USA for the entertainment value

    Things going on for me. I have a new daughter aged nearly 3 months. Currently in the process of buying a house.

    I was rooting for France from start to finish, but their initial games were a lot of crap, so disjointed and uninspired.
    I enjoyed USA Vs Czech Republic. The later's fluency and goals were a marvel. I got suprised they got nowhere in the tournament after such a display. i also liked France Vs Spain and France Vs Brazil.
    And by the way, i still think Zizou was the best.

    The thing about France is that... How many people are actually born in France that play in the team?

    Also with regards Zidane. There should be no excuse for that headbutt.

    Summing up - It was a poor world cup in comparison to Japan/Korea 2002 in terms of excitement... and Germany should have really won it.
