Greetings from Geneva. I'm afraid I have nothing to say of interest, unless you were particularly interested in Greenhouse Gas Inventory Guidelines. If you are particularly interested in Geenhouse Gas Inventory Guidelines, you are probably here. It's easy to check if you are in Geneva. If there's a big lake on one side, big mountains on the other side, and every second person works for the UN, the yup, it's Geneva.

Happiest day


Last night I gave Kate a combination of this The conventional unit cell of the diamond crystal structure. and this An assortment of native platinum nuggets

She said yes.

We are both very, very, very happy.

Many thanks

Sometime ago, someone, somewhere, bought Kate and I a bottle of Penfolds Bin 28 Shiraz Cabernet. Last night we drunk about half of it, and it was lovely. Many thanks.

In other news, the cold that I am currently playing host to is perhaps the most persistant I have ever had. Kate and I were ill on the 27th December, for goodness sake! It should be gone by now.

That is all.

Blogging from work

Another advantage of blogging here is that it gives me something else to do when I should be working.

The old

For reference, my old journal lives (2003 - 2006) lives at www.iamsilk.com/journal.htm

A new year, a new blog, same old rubbish


I am going to use blogger for a while, to see if I like it. If I don't, the experiment can be abandoned.

Reasons (for me) to use blogger

  • It has a label function, so posts can be categorised by subject, as well as date. This was one of the reasons I designed my own blog script, rather than using an existing one.
  • I can post from anywhere, using the web. A clear advantage over iamsilk.com
  • Spell check!
  • Most importantly of all, it will allow you to make comments. So please do.
I think they are reasons enough. So long as I don't lose any functionality, I can live with the slightly different look and feel.

Happy New Year
