Oxbridge lectures play on iTunes [Oct. 7th, 2008|10:20 am]
Peter Sheil
Oxford and Cambridge University are to make lectures available online through downloading software iTunes. (http://news.bbc.co.uk/go/em/-/1/hi/education/7655266.stm)

So, can I get another degree just by listening to them? I'll have a PhD on the philosophy of coding to produce supportable programs, thank you very much.

Today's quotes ... enjoy!

Will Rogers (1879 - 1935)

This paperback is very interesting, but I find it will never replace a hardcover book - it makes a very poor doorstop.
Alfred Hitchcock (1899 - 1980)

The effort to understand the universe is one of the very few things that lifts human life a little above the level of farce, and gives it some of the grace of tragedy.
Steven Weinberg (1933 - )

Reading is to the mind what exercise is to the body.
Sir Richard Steele

The web site for Red Stags Morris (the side I dance with) is now at www.redstagsmorris.org ... hopefully this will stay a little more up to date than the previous one.
