Apologies in Advance

I've mentioned it before, but now is almost the time: I'm going to CERN on Monday, for most of the week.

It's actually a professional development session (I'm supposed to be getting inspired to produce inspiring teaching materials), so it's not a jolly, honest.

Anyhoo, bizarrely, in the birthplace of the internet*, wifi internet access is apparently quite unreliable there, so I may not be around as much as you are used to.

I'll be spending the time in a days-long nerdgasm instead.

(*it involved physicists being too lazy to cycle between work stations)

Breaking news!

Expect a new "Higgs" announcement in about ten days, and a CMBR announcement about ten days after that.
Should we count our Higgs before they hatch?

I'm here, and, as I was warned, the connection is grindingly slow.

Still, at least it's a connection!

Now wandering off to find the chap running this event...

Fourteen hours until I set off from home.

Not that I'm counting ;-)

Eight hours...
So is this junket at the public expense of taxpayer dollars pounds?

Actually, there's a grant from a science education charity. The grant size is fixed, so any leftover cash goes to my school.
so, you're walking then ?
Have fun. You should add the ready-brek glow to your avatar.....

Does your family have the follow an airliner app to track your short hop to Grenoble ?
I hate you!

Actually, no I don't, I'm happy for you. Have fun! Take lots of pictures! :)
