My names Jeremy and I've just finished up a Physics/Population genetics degree down here in Australia. Incidentally, if someone wants to offer me a honours/masters course I'd be interested in talking to you. With a combination of biology and math I could do... Genomics. Ugh.

I've been a compulsive coder ever since my Dad got a job at the TAFE as a sysadmin and I got to play on a TRS-80. My first program was:

10 BEEP 20 GOTO 10

I spent the whole afternoon giggling and adding little bits and pieces to it. Since then most of my programs have something to do with science, and I'll probably post them after I clean them up a bit. In general, if there's a useless, pointless thing that you can do with a computer, I've probably tried it.

I've got a site full of the stuff I'm not too embarressed to show strangers, and a site that I hope is only visited by strangers. This means that merlyn, jarich, pjf, and robau can't look at it.

A snippet of a poem seen on slashdot:

i asked buddha one day, hey dude, so what gives? if all is impermanent, then who cares how one lives? he scanned my source briefly, winked, and then smiled. "please terminate comments or your code won't compile."

[1nickt]: Discipulus that was the point of my story of taking the sticker off my truck. I know there are lots of people in the world who if I knw their private beliefs I might want to argue with them. And they with me. But life cannot all be arguments!
[1nickt]: This is less than perfect ... but demanding perfection (from people or from life) is a sure way to unhappiness.
[Discipulus]: and anyway we have CB where every (democratic) opinion can be expressed
erix eat the rich!
[1nickt]: I do think it is sad that roho has received 3 downvotes for his polite request, as did I when I objected to the profanity in stonecolddevin's sig. I upvoted both him and Karl for the discussion. Way too much downvoting for inappropriate reasons here!
Discipulus learn that 'argue' has a little negative sense, he thought was a neutral sense, 'vox media'
[1nickt]: argue == discuss && argue == be contentious
[Discipulus]: you are right 1nickt i didnt voted nor downvoted; I just upvote perl content i like
[1nickt]: In Spanish, to argue (like a fight) is discutir -- does not mean to discuss !
[1nickt]: Sigh, this is why I gave up human-only languages and became a Perl linguist :-)
