Welcome to 2011

22 09 2011

That’s the 2011 academic year at any rate …

Tomorrow is the last day of the ‘summer holidays’ and the new students turn up on Monday next week. One big innovation for us this year is the decision that we should enthuse the first years as to the joys of research early in their time with us. With that in mind, I’ve been trying to find the demonstrators we built to show off our DC-DC convertors, high temp radio and the amplifier. Whilst the biggest challenge has been in making sure the batteries are charged, the decision to run the flamethrower ‘test’ live will no doubt be memorable, but the challenge of finding the computer and software is proving difficult.

On a related note, Simon has submitted his thesis and we are looking forward to his viva, which has been confirmed for the 9th of November.
