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]: Corion HPs? ugh. I was impressed with Lenovo's gaming laptops; if it weren't for the red backlighting and general flashiness of the aesthetic, I might have gone with that. But all that was until I discovered that the Dell Precision line is still around.
[1nickt]: stevieb I don;t doubt that there's a difference. BestBuy has "consumer" models only on display.
[ambrus]: 1nickt: for some reason, these days they call every computer "gaming", even ones that gamers wouldn't buy. I've bought a keyboard that was labelled "gamer", despite that it has hard springs and seems to be way better for typing than for gaming;
[1nickt]: I though the gamers like that because they bash the keys so hard.
[ambrus]: and I've seen motherboards with no fast expansion ports for a video card but built-in hardware RAID advertized as "gaming".
