    ERROR
    Ok :p: Nevermind!

    Still, that's pretty much the extent of three days work on Dynamics: 'Hey, is that wrong?'. This course is going to be an hilarious failure.

    (Some english buff, 'an hilarious' or 'a hilarious'? 'an' sounds more natural to me, but then again it doesn't at the same time. It's an awkward one where neither of the two possibilities sound right )

    Why am I so tired and consequently soooo behind? :sob: My seminar today was also awful. Everybody knows so much and I just started blankly into the ether for most of it (when I wasn't on the verge of tears). This is my final year and I really need to make the most of it - yet between feeling generally tired, lectures and seminars, preparing (not very much for the latter) and gymming and then being so tired I fell asleep, I'm yet to do any proper work today.

    I need a hug

    You can use the indefinite article, i.e. a/an when the h is not pronounced. So I would say 'a hilarious', but 'an hour'.

    I am convinced it is some kind of German (southern Austria, if I had to guess), but my friend thinks it's something Eastern European. What do you think?
    If it was any German accent I know, it'd be a lot clearer. It sounds very French in places, particularly his letter 'r' and his pronunciation of "theorem" (teuh-o-rème). But his name is "Jan", so I dunno... not a very French name!

    The latter in standard English, because the 'h' is pronounced. But if you drop the 'h' in your speech, I suppose it makes sense to say "an 'ilarious".

    Siklos is a very odd man, and has a nasty tendency to make lots of mistakes.

    Jan, to me, is a Slavic name. On the other hand, Saxl seems to be German? Hmm...

    Hey, you're a mathmo.

    What the hell is Siklos on?! The man's a fool! Please make him go away

    And I think there's a fairly large error in our example sheet, but I don't want to tell anyone in a position of power because it gives me an excuse to not do the question. (Example sheet 1, this is). The end of question 9 - shouldn't it be the error function? Has he completely missed off an integral operator?

    I haven't done the question btw, I was comtemplating it and thought that Skilos' answer clashes quite violently with Worster's.
    The error function does appear, but we need it to disappear, otherwise Q isn't finite.

    Just quoting you to get your attention :P . Saxl is getting worse, isn't he? Thoroughly disorganized and lacking a bit of structure...
    Oh yes, I didn't answer your question. He's alright. He's very disorganised, and I don't think the course is anywhere near as difficult as he makes it seem. But he's not a bad lecturer... just, as you say, very disorganised.

    Language school???

    If you do MML do you get to go at a reduced rate, or do you have to pay full price?

    I'm desperately trying to find somewhere to work in Germany/Austria, or if I can't find there, Spain for this summer;.. But i'm really struggling...
    do you have any ideas?

    PS : i don't think i'll be going to bed tonight... :work: damn judges
