mrry (Happy New Year)
 
Blog Future Shock 22/Jul/2005

If you were to tell me four years ago that I'd be moving to Edinburgh, I'd probably have punched you in the face.

Things change, however, and a series of lifestyle choices, double-bluffs and drunken bets has led to me take up a place on the MSc. in High-Performance Computing course at EPCC in Edinburgh University. So that's at least twelve more months of being a student… except this time I get paid for it!

I've known about this for some time, but was waiting until the ink was dry on my unconditional offer before telling the world. As you probably can't tell from my garrulous tone, I'm extremely excited about moving through, and can't wait to get started there. And of course, we'll be accepting visitors, so if you find yourself in Edinburgh at some time from September onwards, drop me an e-mail or give me a phone and we can meet up. I might even sign you into the Union!

Cheers,

Derek.

I think we might also place a rule that everyone who stays over must bring a roll of toilet paper.

Ordinarily, yes, but you never know—there might just be something in the oh-ven.

The offer of staying is, presumably, conditional on having had our tea? ;)
