I wrote the first version of the GNOME interface for R (see for more information), along with minor contributions to GNOME and the Masqdialer server. I'm no longer actively involved in any of those projects though. My time these days is devoted to my PhD research into inference techniques for the propositional satisfiability problem (SAT).

Just married!

As the title suggests, I’ve just got married. This site is going to be updated soon with photos from the wedding, and with general news from both of us. Tonight we’re off to see Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban at the Imax, having failed to get tickets to tonights Prom concert.

Back in action

Over the last couple of evenings I’ve finally managed to get back to work on my thesis again. If everything goes well, I should complete the second-to-last remaining technical chapter by the end of next week.

Penultimate week in York

I’m just about at the end of my time in York now: next week I’ll be moving down to London, and hopefully starting work the week after that. This weekend I am away at a St Helen’s training weekend, so after today I only have three days left in York. Kind of strange in some ways, having lived here for three years, but having spent so much time in London during those three years it doesn’t really feel like I will be moving to a new place.

Yesterday evening I went round to Dave’s after going to circuit training with Matt, and we had a good long discussion about Christian education. Dave also played me a couple more fragments from his album (earlier in the week he played a group of us three tracks, all of which sounded excellent). Apparently people searching for groups such as the Ozric Tentacles, Shpongle, and Eat Static are starting to find the web site for Skippy Music (which is Dave’s web site). In addition to advertising for his upcoming album, he has posted quite a bit of tutorial information on guitar playing technique which people seem to be finding interesting.

I need to get around to posting information on my Moveable Type to Advogato gateway, which is a variation of sisob’s method.

In case anyone’s interested, I also have a patch for debmirror kicking around that makes the current version function correctly for mirroring experimental.

Chapter finished

Finished another thesis chapter today. Only a couple more of the technical chapters to go, and then the bulk of the work is completely finished.

Long time...

Well, no update for ages, mostly because I’ve been away quite a bit. Since the last posting:

  • Played in goal for my first football game for St Mike’s, and got man of the match. That was partly because I lost a contact lens 10 minutes into the second half, with the result that I could see two balls for most of the rest of the half, but still somehow managed not to let any goals in.
  • Spent most of last week in London having job interviews, and have now got a job.
  • Went to my last York house group; really sad to leave everyone there.
  • Had my second and last St Mike’s game, this time letting three goals in.
  • Got very little thesis work done.
