I am interested in ...
I'm a Christian. I'm a member of
Jesmond Park Uniting Church, very close to the uni.
I've found some valuable sites on the web, that
are helpful for Christians, and non-Christians interested in finding out
more. Of particular note are:
It seems to be compulsory to include links to your mates' home pages.
So here they are.
Greg Restall - Greg is a logician

San Francisco 49ers), is a thoughtful neural
net hacker, who runs the computers of the Facility
for Computational Modelling in Cognitive Science in the Department
of Experimental Psychology, at Oxford
James Hurst's 15 minutes
(of net.fame) first appeared in the dying days of 1995. However, I couldn't
resist leaving up his very first e-mail, which

fellow linux nerd.

about various radio programs and networks.
The ABC's web site has pages for
JJJ, radio national and some other
services. (RN has transcripts of its 8:30 reports)
Cooke's letter from America: Veteran broadcaster Alistair Cooke
offers his personal interpretation and views on all aspects of American
life in this classic radio series Letter From America. (description

I'm a second generation Australian of Welsh ancestry.
If you want to learn Welsh, try the course
in Welsh, from a University in the USA.
The WWW and other net stuff
I use htp to pre-process
the HTML for these files. It is a flexible tool that allows you to change
the look of all your web pages with simple commands.
I edit the files before pre-processing in vi, so I proudly carry the
vi powered logo. I use a set of vi macros for html codes, which you can find
This is one of the best pieces of television science-fiction there is.
Australians can discuss the show in
The newsgroup also has
This is my favourite line from the series.
