1st March 2013 As you may have noticed, there is now a twitter feed over there --->
Fun, isn't it. Anyway, I've decided to finally get rid of the Neveron/mattbot sections from this site since I don't use them anymore.
17th October 2012 Not much to add today: updated versions of my railway sizemap and weightmap, and a new version of my Normal Families work. Also, you can now find me on LinkedIn.
5th September 2012 There are a couple of new photo sets on the Melton Hall 2011/12 page, including photos from the tutors' barbecue and the end of year dinner. There is also an update to the conferences section of the maths page.
11th July 2012 There are a couple of new photo sets on the Melton Hall 2011/12 page, including photos from the Diamond Jubilee Party and the Casino Night. There is some new material on the maths page, including genuine new work (yes, I do do some!).
28th April 2012 There are a couple of new photo sets on the Melton Hall 2011/12 page, including photos from the Spring Formal. I'm back from the Frontiers of Nevanlinna Theory III conference at UCL, so my thanks to Rod Halburd for organising it. An updated version of the slides for my talk, Two results on homogeneous differential polynomials are now available. Flickr sets will follow in a couple of months. I managed about 2500 photos over 3 days, none of them relating to maths.
24th March 2012 There are a couple of new photo sets on the Melton Hall 2011/12 page. The slides for my April talk, Two results on homogeneous differential polynomials are now available, as is a 600MB audio/visual version. I'm looking into making it smaller. Otherwise, there are updates to \nevball, \oddball, \dball, \eball and \pball. There's also a new version of my railway sizemap, following a recent trip down to London to see the new concourse at King's Cross. It's very pretty.
28th February 2012 Main update today is Melton Hall photos for the 2011/12 academic year. Also my paper, A theorem on homogeneous differential polynomials has now been published online. Finally, I will be giving a talk, provisionally entitled Two results on homogeneous differential polynomials (catchy, isn't it?) at the conference Frontiers of Nevanlinna Theory 3: Applications to differential and difference equations, at UCL on the 17th-19th April. Oh yeah, and go play OpenTTD.
11th February 2012 Two new chatlogs today. First, Randy explains the chances of units skilling up or down in the new maintenance rate era, and secondly, I tell ShadowMaster that he's won and I am quitting Nev. There are also updates to the \nevball, \iball, \oddball, \dball and \eball pages.
4th February 2012 A bit of new content today: ShadowMaster talking to Alex about building degradation - the first Neveron admin chatlog of the ShadowMaster era. There are updates to the \nevball, \oddball, \dball, \eball and \pball pages, and also a minor fix to the chatlog "Damz Gets Fined". Finally, my paper, A theorem on homogeneous differential polynomials has been accepted to the journal Results in Mathematics.
30th January 2012 Uploaded the new version of the website. Yay! This new version should load quicker, and maybe I'll update it more.... yeah, probably not. Anyway, the mattbot quote pages are completely up to date, as are my railway diagrams.
