    So, I now understand special relativity far better than I did when doing 1A physics (well, at least as well as). It's a pity that it's not all that relevant to my current essay, which I was technically working on...

    Steady!! I only just got back today :p: I'd like them back anytime you're next moored in the Cam. I'm glad they were well behaved. Hopefully you'll be there when I pop into White Stuff tomorrow and we can plan stuff. Also if you've not seen facebook, my birthday party is on the evening of the 13th :poke:
    Didn't see you at work today. I'm not in tomorrow. We're in Cambridge for the next week or so, currently out at the Penny Ferry in Chesterton, so I'm sure something can be arranged!

    I've seen an email from facebook but haven't had the internet much recently. Of course we'll be there!

    ****

    Just watched the first 3 eps of Life On Mars (DVD was christmas pressie from friends). Its great! And we have a telly. I insisted upon it being rigged up for Jonathan Creek on New Year's Day. Alan Davies = :love:

    What time did you finish? I was there just before closing - perhaps you were downstairs. I was looking at slippers, and I think the manager helped me. So after that I felt a bit hesitant to ask after you, incase it was obvious :p:

    I'll text anyway.
    Does this mean you have tv all the time, or do you have to put it away/disconnect it after use each time?

    This is why I NEVER stray into the Cambridge forum proper :p:

    Whut? :lolwut:
    Every Tuesday we go to the pub quiz. Usually we come around the middle, this time we lost :o: I'm sure I've mentioned this before, we had a massiove conversation about quizzes. Or was that the old Fresher's thread? *thinks*

    Both quality shows. :yep:

    And I'm happy tonight as I had a nice day today (despite the cold) and unlike last night my last-minute vac work is actually making some sense.

    Just wondering, what is inherently wrong with bumping a thread? Does it create extra work for moderators or something [don't really know how it all works tbh]

    It's annoying in ways that nobody can quite comprehend. Then again, I do it from time to time. Never in those circumstances though :p:

    No need. The correlation between annoying users and rejections is already about 99% :^^: Although you're right - there's always room for improvement...

    It depends on context, I think. In this case its obvious why that was an incredibly annoying thing to do. There are also other annoying side effects. Like once I started getting loads of PMs from Chemistry A level students asking for help a good three years after I'd touched the stuff, purely because someone bumped a thread, and nobody noticed how old my posts were :hmpf:
    But yeh, I don't know what 'the reason' is.

    In the vast majority of cases it is pointless as the people who posted in the thread are no longer interested in the topic.

    The info is usually out of date. But most often we get rid of it because a current identical thread is already on the first page.

    In other news, I'm doing RAG Jailbreak this year, and you all have to sponsor me!

    Fair play. But I'm pretty sure the reason he/she got to that thread was using the search function - it's set so that it is listed by relevance. Maybe a good idea in the future would be to only / also list it using the date as well; it may serve to reduce the bumping of threads.

    Good evening/morning to all

    I hope you don't mind a quick invasion, but I'd like to pick your brains if that's ok? I need to start thinking about where to live in Cambridge, and wondered if any of you had any input as to places/areas to avoid?

    Any info would be a great help, thanks.
