One of the reasons I now enjoy writing this blog so much, is the feedback and help that I get when I do.

I don't really want to write posts just for the sake of writing them, so I think this will be my last post until we start our finals, which is 3 weeks from now.

I like to think of some poor foreign student recognising the first character and assuming from context he can get his puncture sorted out off to the left.
