Unplugged in G

Another vacation, another video - as usual, apologies for the sound, webcam and playing quality. Three days left 'till the journey back to Cambridge.

Gel electrophoresis of Senecio vulgaris, S. squalidus and S. cambrensis DNA strands.

Vacation status: haven't even touched anything related to Computer Science. On the other hand, brushed up on complex trigonometry/logarithms and series expansions (read: maths), and feel reasonably happy to discuss plant evolution through polyploidy (read: biology, see: picture on the right).

Post-vacation status update: apparently I did have to discuss plant evolution through polyploidy in my exam! What were the odds...

Anyway, here's the video. Oh, yes, and while we're at it - happy New Year to you all.


Eric Clapton - Wonderful Tonight (0:00/3:50),
Guns N' Roses - Wild Horses (3:54/6:16).

White Man's Blues

Due to the fact that I have found time to record these videos, I'm starting to suspect that my vacations have prolonged quite a bit... And I still have more than a week left.

Status update: apparently I have been awarded the Simon Gray prize by the Department of Philosophy at the University of Edinburgh. That, a KAL industrial scholarship, a couple of other prizes... I almost regret having decided to leave.

Anyway, here's the video. Try to figure out which is worse: my playing or my webcam's video quality.
