Sorry, I didn't realise

If you've read the comments for my entry Union Elections then you'll know one of the comments I made was:

Don't vote awsome, vote for RON!
RON for all Union positions!!!
Who's with me!?

I have just received an email from Simon Lucas, the President of the Student's Union, in which he said

I'd imagine you were unaware that this comment constitutes a breach of the Union's Constitutional appendix on elections, which states that:

"6.9 - No member may promote Re-Open Nominations."

I'm afraid that as a member of the Students' Union you are bound by these rules whether you were aware of them or not.

and asked that the comment be removed.

If we were to go by the letter of the rules (as some people would have me do) then I should now be convening a disciplinary to look into this

So, of course, I'm very grateful that he'd prefer not to do this, and he also said he knew I didn't mean any harm.

The comment was not meant to be at all serious but, as requested, I have removed it and would just like to say:

Sorry, I didn't realise

Union Elections

Don't vote in the Union Elections; it'll only encourage them…

So it begins…

Of course, you know, this means war!

It's amazing what you can get done when you're avoiding doing, say, a formal Physics lab report.
So far today, I've, well, I've vacuumed my room, but the principle is sound…
I've also watched a few Family Guys and played on the computer, but vacuuming was the only worthwhile thing I've done.

Bloody Circuits

Follow-up to Bloody Electronics from The randomness of tomorrow, today!

Blasted circuits and oscilloscopes that don't do what they're supposed to do, for no obvious reason!

Why WSC is better than the Arts Centre cinema

WSC, when compared to the cinema in the Arts Centre, has:

  • More seats
  • A bigger auditorium
  • A bigger screen
  • A better sound system
  • A more varied schedule
  • A schedule arranged in collaboration with students
  • Cheaper tickets
  • The Allnighter
  • The ability to show 70mm films
  • and probably a few things I can't think of right now

The merits of a good breakfast

It's amazing how much harder it is to cycle if you haven't had anything decent to eat.

Sometimes fact is stranger than fiction…

I've just seen an episode of Enterprise in which the head of the Vulcan High Command appears, in order to advance an agenda, to have fabricated evidence that suggests the Andorians are building a very powerful weapon (a weapon of mass destruction, if you will), as an excuse to launch a "pre–emptive strike" against Andoria.
It may just be my imagination, but that all sound eerily familiar…

Well, almost…

Follow-up to Wouldn't it be nice… from The randomness of tomorrow, today!

I've put my blog on my site so that I have some control over how it looks. It's not completely finished, but it's finished enough to be useable. It's at

and only shows the latest 10 entries (basically it's the main page with a different look) so it's mainly intended for reading the latest entries; all the links go to the appropriate page on the Warwick Blogs site so comments can be made, or what have you.
If you're at all interested, I used the RSS feed and a slightly modified Python script I found online to get a workable text file, and then the PHP script formats it nicely and voila
