[10:52] <Laurenceb> hi edmoore
[10:52] <edmoore> hi
[10:52] <edmoore> if mc comes on, can you tell him my skype isn't working properly atm?
[10:53] <Laurenceb> ok
[10:54] <Laurenceb> you any good with fluid dynamics?
[10:54] <Laurenceb> does viscous stress have to be continuous ?
[10:56] <edmoore> yes
[10:57] <edmoore> i mean - a discontinuinty would indicate some kind of magic forcefield
[10:58] <Laurenceb> ah ok course
[10:59] <Laurenceb> as you take the second derivative to find the force
[11:00] <Laurenceb> well force on some little packet of fluid

[15:57] <Laurenceb> hi folks
[15:58] <Laurenceb> too hot :(
[16:00] <edmoore> you or the weather?
[16:00] <Laurenceb> lol the weather
[16:02] <Laurenceb> unfortunately
[16:46] <edmoore> what's happening anyway?
[16:51] <Laurenceb> happening?
[16:51] <Laurenceb> not a lot here, revision :-(
[16:51] <Laurenceb> trying to understand Rossby waves
[16:52] <Laurenceb> you?
[16:54] <edmoore> trying to find out how much some beam has twisted
[16:54] <edmoore> based on some error-filled flexural matrix with eigenvalues that aren't orthogonal
[16:55] <edmoore> so trying to bodge it into being orthogonal
[16:55] <Laurenceb> ew
[16:55] <edmoore> it's all a stupid waste of time
[16:55] <edmoore> I hate revising
[16:55] <Laurenceb> I remember looking at some eng papers once
[16:55] <Laurenceb> all about beam flexing :D
[16:55] <edmoore> structural mechanics is a bit dull, I think
[16:55] <edmoore> some people love it
[16:55] <edmoore> not me
[16:56] <Laurenceb> planetary scale fluid dynamics is just weird
[16:56] <edmoore> wasn't newton's second principia trying to describe p-lentary motion with fluid dynamics?
[16:56] <edmoore> it was a load of bullshit
[16:57] <Laurenceb> dont know, I havent read it
[16:57] <edmoore> but infuriatingly solved lots of fluids in the process
[16:57] <Laurenceb> :P
[16:57] <edmoore> no one has
[16:57] <edmoore> leibnitz said he reckoned you could get through about 1 page of it every 4 days
[16:57] <edmoore> and he was a genius
[16:57] <Laurenceb> lol
[16:58] <Laurenceb> it gets a bit disconcerting when wikipedia explains things better than the lecture notes
[16:58] <edmoore> who's the lecturer?
[16:59] <Laurenceb> some guy...
[16:59] <Laurenceb> knowone famous :P
[16:59] <edmoore> the guy lecturing us on the flagellum of bacteria yesterday was amazing
[16:59] <Laurenceb> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thermal_wind <-- thats actually understandable
[16:59] <edmoore> he always talks about various 'good experiments' by some person x or y
[16:59] <Laurenceb> they do lots of research on flagellum here
[17:00] <edmoore> 'macnab, through careful experiemnts, achieved this result'
[17:01] <Laurenceb> I find atmospheric really hard to follow as the lectures are so ad hock
[17:01] <edmoore> and then he said 'and klug postulated this, for which he received the nobel prize'
[17:01] <Laurenceb> :P
[17:01] <edmoore> to which someone said 'professor klug, that's you'
[17:01] <Laurenceb> haha

[17:01] <edmoore> 'yes, I suppose it is. anyway, these flagella....'
[17:01] <edmoore> was very funny
[17:02] <Laurenceb> lol
[17:02] <edmoore> he's ancient
[17:02] <natrium42> CS is dull :(
[17:02] <edmoore> do something random
[17:02] <edmoore> this bio course I'm doing has been such a nice complement to engineering
[17:03] <Laurenceb> sounds very similar to the biophysics course here
[17:03] <edmoore> there's a big life sciences push in engineering at the moment
[17:03] <edmoore> i guess they've decided that's where the future lies
[17:04] <Laurenceb> but if I chose biophysics and atmospheric science I'd look too lazy
[17:04] <edmoore> it would be an odd combo
[17:04] <edmoore> unless you have some arcane interest in high altitude fungal spores or something
[17:05] <Laurenceb> lol
[17:05] <Laurenceb> well there are published papers looking at just that
[17:05] <edmoore> there's a paper published for absolutely everything
[17:07] <Laurenceb> just ordered http://www.amazon.com/Software-Defined-GPS-Galileo-Receiver-Single-Frequency/dp/0817643907
[17:10] <edmoore> you'll basically be re-writing that book :)
[17:10] <Laurenceb> lol

[17:10] <Laurenceb> I have a huge reading list for over the summer
[17:11] <Laurenceb> it never stops :(
[17:11] <edmoore> I'm doing loads of linear algebra
[17:11] <edmoore> because my specialism is basically linear algebra
[17:11] <edmoore> ]bbiab
[17:14] <natrium42> yeah, algebra ftw
[17:14] <natrium42> calculus is :S
