    Hmmm, Shiny's plan sounds better.

    I just occasionally worry that there will be people there who can do it already and I'll feel stupid...
    I'm feeling stupid already talking to Will about programming. I've never finished a single programming book, and he's running a bloody website! :eek:

    you'll get a mix of programming abilities. the ones who know what they are doing will basically end up with the programming afternoons off whereas beginners will have to work a bit harder to get their work done

    Well...on the subject of names...i'm sure just calling both MadNatSci and Figgy Nikki/Nicky won't really cause that much confusion. But if you insist..Fred it is!

    Programming stuff??? Bah....no idea about that!

    Just changed my avatar. What do you think? Does it make me a paedophile?
    Of course not...

    They teach CompScis programming basics, although you'll probably have to do most of the work in your own time from what I've been told (ask Alaric, he's going into his third year now I think).

    C++ isn't a good language to start with, but it suits some people.

    dunno, just pancakes in general. We were discussing having a pancake party as well as the passoa party. I can make both, so I'm sure there'd be a choice
    If I get in, pancake party at Robinson!

    Question for the Mathmos!!

    Say, you have 5 million pounds saved in a bank account with an yearly interest rate of 5% fixed, paid in twice every year. You may assume that it is compound interest. And you plan to spend it over the next 50 years. And you have also decided (for no reason) that you should take out the same amount at the beginning of every year so that you end up with 0 pound in your bank account at the beginning of the 50th year. So, how much should you take out? I would like to see the full work out please.


    Side Note: I've no idea what the answer is since I've not thought about the question long enough. This is one of those things come to me while I'm playing Puzzle Fighter. I also strongly feel I should appologise now just in case the question kills any brain cells out there. Anyway, having fun having headaches. Cheers!
