Going back in time, I come from the north of Spain. No, it's not actually sunny there; in fact, it rains more than in England.
I've always been a geek since a very young age, but managed to resist the temptations of scifi until very late. It probably has to do with the 700 book collection my father has, and I wasn't going to read them, only because he said so. Until I started reading them behind his back. And eventually had to admit he was right all along.
Tired of the capital of boredom, I got myself a UWC scholarship and went to study in the middle of Nowhere Norway. After 2 years of fjord, I decided that I still wanted to do Aero Eng and that I wanted to do so in Imperial, especially because it was London. And somehow, despite my family's best efforts, I landed here. I managed to resist ICSF until that day when Alex and Adeon dragged me here. I don't think I have really left.
I survived Aero. This might possibly be one of my greatest achievements ever. Now I am a Mistress of Engineering. I have more or less finished finding all the little pieces of brain that went everywhere when I went crazy, and I'm back in the country, enjoying Bristol and living with Alex.
In the event of a lot of stress, just feed me some coffee and show me some cute kittens. The satellites I currently program don't have lasers, but all in due time.

RE: End of World Barnight. You said you would expect the incumbent Chair of Vice to work out the exact time of the end of the world, but since it is possible they will be a biologist, or something, I thought I'd work it out. I can't find anywhere better to put it, so I'm commenting it in here (pity you can't seem to comment on scheduled events)

According to, the Winter solstice of 2012 is on Dec 21, 2012 at 11:11 UCT.

Taking the sacred city of Izamal (20

You know, it's a shame that the end of the world isn't a hundred years later.

Quite aside from the fact that I *like* being alive, having the world end on a bi-palindromic date like 11:11 21/12/2112 would be fantastically cool. And probably prove that we'd been doing something right with our timekeeping all along.
