Well finally after 4 and a bit years my PhD thesis has been published. The title is "Systematics, Specificity, and Ecology of New Zealand Rhizobia", if that doesn't put you off then read the scoop here: http://www.rhizobia.co.nz/PhD/
What the hell is going on. `Editors' abusing their moderation ability? Read this at -1
OK finally putting together a blog, although I am pretty lazy at updating, and in to writing my PhD thesis so don't expect too many updates. http://bevanz.blogspot.com/
After two weeks with no internet access in Mexico (I coped surprisingly well), I just heard the new song "Slash Dot Dash" off the Album "Palookaville" by Fatboy Slim. The lyrics seem to be little more than saying "slash dot com" repeatedly, but it is catchy. Watch a sample video clip (Banned in the UK). Could this become the official slashdot song?
I have been looking for a decent DAP (Digital Audio Player) for a long time now
The selling points of the Karma were the 20GB Capacity, Ethernet support, OGG Vorbis, and half the price of the Ipod.
I received it from the US on the 22nd of Jan. Working really well so far although many people here have had problems with hard drive failures.
Oh joy a new computer!
A few days ago I received a brand new Compaq Evo N800w laptop computer. 2.2GHz P4 M Processor, 768MB RAM, ATI Mobility Fire GL 9000 graphics. This is worth about NZ$ 5500 And best of all it was free! Yes it was given to me by the University of Auckland. It is a thing for graduate students. Of course I have to give it back when I finish my degree, but since I am doing a PhD, that will not be for quite some time yet.

I have given the American units in the brackets for comparison. Not
quite sure why the USA uses these non-SI units. Maybe they think it is
easier to read? Anyway the conversion factor is 0.02586 found here

Well I'm trying to spend some more time on my web page. Writing it in Moz Composer, then converting to XHTML. CSS too of course. Just for fun really.
Just a lame test of slash code 2.2
