    btw, spotify said when he made the new one that it might be the last one to post before he closes the thread (which I guess means he's already won it ) who wins, so he needs to clarify what the winning criterion are. Either that, or we need to have a mutiny against him.

    Is spotify able to close it? I was planning to close it after 10k because that would be my job :yes: — those planning to close it should close ASAP after 10k to be fair.

    Well last time it went on for ages afterwards, and in the end they got scared it might crash the site and shut it down. Not sure who can and can't close it, and actually it might even still be going, just not used, not sure.

    Now one almighty troll would be to close it at 9999...

    I mod this section and use this thread a lot so I don't mind taking that responsibility — ofc that exempts me from winning but, truthfully I really want AJ to win it :lol:

    Yeah, actually looking at it we got to 10070 posts before it got closed. It is closed to new posts but can still be viewed, not sure why that wouldn't break the site any more than leaving it open to editing tbh but there you go.

    Can we just clarify the winning criterion. Which should it be?

    This is indeed the tradition, so lets stick to this

    I'm great thanks. Now that exams are over anyway! I've just started to self study some stuff both relevant to my masters/phd course I'm starting in september, as well as some stuff that I just want to know anyway. I managed to avoid it this year, but in previous years I've kind of procrastinated by studying stuff that wasn't relevant to my degree, but that I just wanted to learn! Strange really, but learning beautiful mathematics is really fun when you're not under pressure, but really stressful when you have tonnes of work and tight deadlines!

    How are you?

    I forget you're a mathmo :moon: life's OK I guess :yep: exams are stressful but I'm doing OK. I'm worried I'm overworking myself significantly though. Then again, I'm a workaholic, so I'm not complaining.

    I do that too, I once spent an entire week researching Japanese language syntax… I don't speak Japanese (or watch anime, etc. etc.), their grammar just intrigued me. :lol: Such a linguist… Procrastination can be fun AND informative! Who knew? What're you going to study for your PhD? Must be daunting and exciting at the same time?

    It's basically a masters and phd all in one, it's all to do with communications. The scheme is kind of a new approach, it's like a small with a small cohort. The department is working on 5G mobile phone networks and wifi at the minute, all very current technologies. Not too daunting, but I need to study some stuff for it at least.

    What are you thinking of going on to do after you graduate?

    That sounds very interesting! I've studied the theory behind cellular networking etc. but not the maths behind it because I'm hopeless at maths. I can only code because it's basic logic and I can cope with that… Hope it all goes well!

    Now, that's the question. The idea of working with the European Commission or with HM Courts is really attractive to me. I fear I may have to go into teaching though, I don't want to. So I hope it doesn't come to that.

    That sounds interesting, so you'd be the guy on the end of the phone doing the translations in court.

    Indeed I would be :rofl: I reckon I'd need to go ahead and do a Masters in Translation though. The costs and complications with that terrify me, but it's something I'll tackle when I arrive there… I hope I'll be good enough :lol:

    In science generally postgraduate courses are funded (by the university/research councils, i.e free) because you're doing research, but I'm not sure if that happens in languages. I hear that they are bringing in postgraduate loans though, not sure what the fine details of those are though.

    That's lucky! Also, second point is verrrryyy interesting :beard: will keep an eye on that. I can't really afford postgrad, as much as I'd like to. My job and wages just won't cover it with over costs… :erm:

    I think the post grad loans will work in a similar way to the undergrad ones, but I'm not sure, you'd have to look.
