    Ok, I understand.
    Just let one of us check your spelling before you send it, so that it won't be a waste of your time in case the queen can't read it.

    Ahh, I'm missing out on "hottest September"

    I used to go via emirates when I go to the UK, so a stop in Dubai - but don't want the hassle this time, so taking a direct flight (and it's cheaper) which means about ~12/12.5 hours flight which is a bit crazy. Guess it's enough time to read that King's freshers book about free will :lol:

    On a completely different (and bit old) note.....

    Has anyone seen The Man Who Knew Infinity?
    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0787524/

    It had quite mixed reviews and was shown at cinemas for a very short period of time, but I quite liked it.....

    And the film also tells you sandals in cold Cambridge is not a good idea.....

    The voices from mathmo world on the film.
    "The film has been praised by mathematicians and scientists for its authentic portrayal of theoretical mathematicians. Instead of a perfunctory treatment of mathematics, the film engaged the mathematicians Ken Ono and Manjul Bhargava to get the mathematics right. George E. Andrews, former President of the American Mathematical Society praised the film for its moving portrayal of the deep relationship between Ramanujan and Hardy.[13] The London Mathematical Societyproclaimed that the film "outshines Good Will Hunting in almost every way".[14] Reviewing the film for Nature, Andrew Robinson wrote that "the film took more than ten years to create. It is worth the wait."[15] "
