Felicitous Polytheistic Celebration Day!
Saturnalia, Yule, Christmas, all equally valid events at some point in history. The short is, I hope today has been slightly better than average for the vast majority of you out there.
Much has happened since my last post,
I finally got round to finishing the AfrikaBurn posts I finally finished my degree!
Seriously though I am quite happy with the achievement, using some dubious sources and rough estimation I am now 1 of 100 000 qualified in my field of study, neat. As for the future I am lucky enough to continue studying until I die from old age, or get a Ph.D, whichever comes first.
Some ideas which I have in the pipeline to post are:
- Finishing the AfrikaBurn posts
- How to setup your own email server (this was a fun exercise someone suggested to me)
- Astrophotography, can one even
- Musings on the calculation of electric field plots and potentials
- How I decided to build a bed in a fit of boredom
- How Dubai is an unsalvageable shithole
As a teaser to the last point, I am currently in Dubai. My disdain is boundless. I’m only keeping off of writing a missive now as I am already in a bad enough mood and I suspect the post will be nought but incomprehensible frothing.
Otherwise I am somewhat limited by having most of the nice photos I’ve been meaning to post sitting on my desktop. In South Africa. 7600 odd kilometers away. Oh well, soon.
I leave you with this photo of the Horsehead nebula which I took earlier this year at a most delightful little guestfarm in the Tankwa Karoo.
I won’t be back until 2016, cheerio!
