    About me
    Craggy at Cambridge...

    DON'T PM WITH ANY QUESTIONS ABOUT CAMBRIDGE UNLESS YOU'VE READ THE STICKIES IN THE OXBRIDGE AND CAMBRIDGE FORUMS! :security:

    However, if you have any questions that can't be answered after a bit of time using 'forum search' in the Oxbridge section, and some level-headed thinking, please PM me. I'm always happy to provide any information or personal experiences and opinions.

    I loved my degrees (undergrad and postgrad), although they were hard work. Cambridge is an amazing place to live and study, and I was lucky to spend four wonderful years there

    I am currently studying my PhD at UEA.

    CLICK HERE TO READ MY SECOND YEAR RESEARCH PROJECT ABOUT REPUTATION ON TSR...





    I use TSR to procrastinate and engage in mild social interaction. I also like helping out where I can and being part of a friendly, mutually supportive environment.
    This also happens alot:

    Since the reputation system changed, people are negging far more frequently and for almost any reason. If a person negs me for a silly reason they just get negged right back. (i.e. almost all cases) Be warned.

    What's Craghyrax?

    (Original post by Rock Dassie / Rock / hyrax (Procavia capensis))
    The Rock Dassie or Hyrax is found from sea level to the Drakensberg mountains of South Africa. The Dassie has to have rocks to shelter and live in.

    This small, plump and tail-less guinea-pig-like animal is about as large as a
    big rabbit and haunts rock outcrops, hillocks and mountain cliffs.

    Behaviour
    Rock Dassies like basking in the sun on large rocks, particularly during mornings and late afternoons...
