Birthday blog

Today I celebrate turning 25! My first quater of a century has been okay, but I expect big things from the next quater. I have also decided that as it's my birthday it can also be my blogs official birthday and in a way similar to the Queen it will have two, with it's real birthday being October 25th. So everyone raise a glass and say happy birthday to me and cosmiczoo, hip hip hooray, hip hip hooray, for he's a jolly good fellow, for he's a jolly good fellow...

In an update on the current state of my PhD thesis writing I'm happy to announce that I've got one (almost two) chapters finished. Although this still puts me a few weeks behind my supposed timetable I think it's pretty good.

In the last few days I recieved my first piece of blog spam or blam as I propose to call it in the hope that it catches on, as in "my comments page has has been blammed" or "i'm sick and tired of all this bloody blam, wont somebody do something about it" or some such. You can all view this in the comment section of my last post, but I wouldn't bother. I'm just wondering what sort of scarey program they've got trawling blogs, putting comments in. With the advent of this poorly contrived word i hope that my name will go down in internet history.
