I know this is very sad  but here’s a scene from my favourite show – the one and only Coronation St.
 

and this will REALLY make you think

what does 2 to the power of 100 really look like? this is something that Nathan has got on his site and I just thought I’d put it up here cos when you read it it’ll probably blow you away  😮

“…The star nearest our solar system is Proxima Centauri.  It is 4.2 light-years away, which means that its light takes 4.2 years to get here.  That is 6,700 times farther than Pluto.  Another huge jump in scale — much larger, for example, than the 200x jump from the width of a city to the width of the United States.  You can pretty easily wait the 5.5 hours it takes for light to go from the Sun to Pluto, but waiting the 4.2 years it takes for light to get here from Proxima requires a good deal more patience.  Even the very nearest star is incredibly far away… ..and so on

all about me…

Hi again

just thought I’d tell ya all a little about myself before I get started…that’s me in the picture with my son Bill. This was taken a few years ago now when we still lived in Thailand…

liambill.GIFWe live in Edinburgh, Scotland now. I’m 38 and working with computers for a living. I enjoy surfin the Net whilst listening to dub reggae….many of the sites that I will link to off this blog I found whilst doing this very thing.

Hope you like the results…I do anyway…

 

Welcome to the new blog!

Hi everybody

Thanks for bearing with me through the problems of the old bulletin board. As it was pretty much just myself who was posting decent stuff to that I have decided to change the whole format of the page, and as you can see, it is now a blog.

There was a lot of material on the BB so I am now going to start the process of transferring all those links across to this page.

Hope you enjoy yourselves here!
