    That looks quite fun actually. What does it mean by "incorporate a bit of the tissue" - does part of the suture go through the tissue below the skin or something?
    Yeah, something like that. The cut may involve deeper structures, and the whole thickness of the wound needs to be sutured to prevent a pocket forming deep to the suture and therefore leading to infection.

    And oh dear God. I don't want to talk about that supervision.
    :hugs: I think everyone has off days/weeks - even supervisors. Maybe the next one will be much better? I had a supervision where I basically waffled a lot of rubbish last week, and then one that I really enjoyed yesterday (we had a lovely debate about Elizabethan Catholics - yes, I am this much of a geek!! :p: ). Hopefully the same'll happen to you In some ways, I almost think that, with history at least (obviously I'd not know about engineering :p:), if you've handed in work you've found hard/think is rubbish, you have a better supervision as a result - there's much more to discuss, and I think you get more out of it than if you feel as though you fully "get" whatever the topic is (although the latter has yet to happen to me!). So don't despair

    And congratulations Zoe (I've only skimmed the past few pages, so sorry for ignoring lots of you :o:).

    This V&M sheet is a lot harder than I had thought. I should have paid more attention during lectures last week! :woo:

    DE4 is proving particularly evil. I can only get one solution for Q3 for the case \gamma = 1 and the only way I can think of getting another solution is too scary to execute... I wonder if Prof. Worster is going to teach us more about series solutions, or if we're supposed to figure these out ourselves. :-/

    Thank god DE4 isn't due in until after the holidays at Fitz. Assuming that I finish VM3 tonight, I will have to do DE3 until Sunday, which sounds reasonable, but I have lots of other things to do until then! And then NS4 until Wednesday. But then, I'm done. Yay! :woo:

    What do you think of our substitute professor in DE? I quite like him, although today's lecture was a bit weird in terms of content...

    N&S4 is full of paradoxical constructions. I had my N&S3 supervision today, and the supervisor said that we might be doing a different examples sheet instead (again).

    The substitute lecturer is one of the two maths DoS at my college, actually. He supervises me for V&M.

    Wronskian? Remember you only need to find the first two terms. Unless I've done it wrong :o:
    True. But I'm uncomfortable with truncating series... Hmm. I guess I should try that. As soon as I remember how to determine y_2 in terms of W and y_1...

    Oh, I disagree. I visited friends this weekend (I should have come to see you -- I forgot, sorry!) and got reminded about how awful it is not to have proper weekends and evenings. Give me compulsory hours and no stress any day.
    I agree completely. Its wonderful to *finish* work. and leave it behind and not worry about it for the whole evening/weekend.

    Youtube is awesome. Not for the squeamish: http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=V1bRq-PW5bw
    That was quite entertaining. It would be cool if there were robots to do that though.

    No probs But no, I don't think they do... & I don't think I'm going to risk adding yet more food colouring to the drink...
    I was thinking mince pies?

    (at first I was like, OMG, how does she know I'm drinking Irn-Bru?! Then I realised, I'm always drinking it... even at 10 to midnight...)

    But its determinant was non singular
    Then don't you think it was miserable enough already without you trying to force it to conform to an idealised image?

    Probably a very stupid question, but is Irn-Bru supposed to mean "Iron Brew", suggesting a very strong beverage :confused: ? Or does it have some other, totally unrelated meaning to it?

    'tis rumoured that it was originally "brewed" from "Iron Girrrrders [correct Scottish pronounciation]", hence the name

    More or less. It's just a soft drink like coke though, not alcoholic.

    I suppose our supervisors wouldn't think that "I refuse to diagonalise this matrix because it has a right to be non-diagonal" was a very good answer to the question, though .
