I noticed recently that my cooking skills steadily increased (eventhough the ones who lived with me would probably disagree) in the last 3 years. Fortunately, I found an old picture of one of my meals when I first arrived here.

From the 3 cooked eggs + pasta “salad” without sauce 3 years ago

To recently my first proper (edible) steak on the grill pan (with rice or so):

Wow. Today, it’s exactly 3 years since I left Switzerland..

The arrival – just arrived on campus

One year – finished master, starting phd

Two years – hm still doing phd

Now – ack, still doing phd!

How will September 2010 look like? That’s quite undefined. I try to finish the thesis around then, but what happens afterwards is completely undefined. I probably won’t (and can’t, and don’t want to) stay at QM however I wouldn’t want to leave London already. In any way, I don’t have too much time to decide as (any kind of) job search takes a lot of time here. I keep you posted on my decisions 🙂

I think I haven’t mentioned this here, but my latest paper has been accepted for publication and I’ll present it at the Formal Methods Week in Eindhoven in November! Quite cool.

It happened. All three major utility bill providers (gas/electricity, water, phone) spell my name wrong in their letters.

Let’s start with British Gas, only lacking one letter:

bg bg_txt

Fair enough, could happen. Thames Water is next:

tw tw_txt

Two mistakes!

Finally, everbody’s favorite, BT:

bt bt_txt

Obviously, they got my first and lastname wrong 🙂

Maybe I should speak more clearly on the phone though..
