Greetings programs.

I figured I'd better delurk officially after answering a post earlier this morning.

No images shall be found in this post as I avoid cameras like the plague... unnatural things. [Smile]

What 'ya got here is your average CS/Physics geek (yes, double major and to save you the trouble, yes I know I've lost it [Smile] ).

Pastimes include coding anything that comes to mind, watching BSG/Firefly/anime, listening to lots and lots of music, gaming and maintaining the mini server-farm that sits in my apartment.

I actually found GC through Google while bored one morning (insomnia _can_ have it's uses) and have been hooked ever since.

Link to the home page is forthcoming... I really don't have a lot of desire to put up something monumental, right now it's just a Geeklog/Horde combo that I use to keep track of ideas and generally keep myself sane!

As for the nick... Neutrino has been with me for ages... honestly I don't remember why [Smile] .

And with that I depart, this post is already far too long.

Salutations, welcome and Happy New Year to another fellow physics geek.

What species are you; e, μ, or τ? [Geek] And what sort of physics tickles your fancy?

Thanks for the kind greetings [Smile] . In reply to your question Astronomer, my favorite area would have to be quantum, for some reason it comes easily to me.

Unfortunately I haven't taken much at my current school. I found that trying to finish my CS and my Physics courses at the same time doesn't work (overload!) so I'm working on finishing CS right now then it's back to Physics (aka I'm going to be in school until I'm 30 :S)

I haven't figured out how to do ALT+%s combos in this BB yet so the answer for that is forthcoming [Smile] .

Edit: I was silly and spaced the whole concept of copy/paste for the characters... see below.

'nother student from Bellingham, WA, eh? Friend of Kinguy, by any chance?

Howdy and welcome. Frantically welcome, that is. [Big Grin]

I don't know what I was thinking... it seemed like a good idea at the time.

Hmmm, I was thinking I might do a double major in CS and physics myself... has it worked out very well for you? Many job offers? Cool perks?


Oh, and welcome [Razz]

Astronomer Jedi
It just occurred to me that I was an idiot in my previous post and I could have just copied the characters from your post. Heh, my apologies!
I would have to say I'm a μ neutrino, although there are days when I oscillate between all three methinks! [Smile]

TMBWITW,PB:
The (e, μ, or τ) that Astronomer was referring to are the three species of neutrino: electron, muon and tau [Smile] .

nerdwithnofriends:
Be prepared for a large amount of work! You'll also be in school for a while as Physics and CS have few common courses, so you need to be prepared for that, both mentally and financially. I have found that the Physics/CS double major is a rare breed and will often get you noticed (and called insane on a routine basis), which would lead to getting job offers.

Many corporations look for someone who can not only write code, but solve problems as well. A completed Physics degree would show a high degree of aptitude in problem solving.

As for my jobs, I've stuck mainly on the CS side 'cause I loooove programming, haven't tried any Physics oriented jobs yet [Smile] .

No need to get yourself in a spin. I'm not sure anyone here follows the standard model, so you'll get more than just weak interactions. [Big Grin]

As for the characters, I just copied them from Mathematica.

I bet a CS/Physics double is hard work. My single Physics is hard enough.

(Enough with the puns, right?)

I cannot imagine what the above is referring to [shake head] .

But then, I notice that my own nick has always been one word beginning with a lower case 'g' and also having one such imbedded.

Welcome. There is no apostrophe in the possessive form of its.

Enjoy your stay. [Big Grin]
