Brief Hiatus

July 31st, 2003 · No Comments

I’ll be having a brief hiatus from posting here for the next few days, as I’m about a thousand words into an article I’m writing on an interesting new type of multiplayer online game. I’ve been looking forward to writing it for over a month and so far it’s not looking bad, although it’s finished [...]

Today (one day early) my Cambridge email address was deactivated because I graduated last month. This means that you can no longer contact me via Instead, my new active email address is adrian@(nospam), and my new permanent forwarding address is hon@(nospam) What this means is that if you ever want to contact me in [...]

First day of TEDMED written up

July 2nd, 2003 · No Comments

I have finally written up the first day of the TEDMED3 conference (it’s probably still in the ‘massive’ column). Properly formatted with a nice list of links at the start – what more could you ask for? Well, maybe the other three days written up, but one step at a time, eh?

On Friday morning I’ll be flying off to Australia, via Singapore, for just under four weeks. I anticipate lots of fun and frolics and hopefully I’ll be able to update this weblog, which will be a change from the usual. If the resources are available, I’ll also upload some photos as I go along.

Back again

June 17th, 2003 · 1 Comment

I returned to England on Monday, and almost immediately went to Emmanuel College May Ball, which was great fun. I’m currently a fair bit sleep deprived, but once I’ve recovered I’m going to start work on writing a report of my trip to the TEDMED3 conference. Some teasers:
- Be SHOCKED as Adrian is almost denied [...]

Readers of will remember my ill-fated expedition into Mozilla Mail 1.3. There was only one reason behind the expedition – to get rid of the 50+ junk mails that I receive per day.
In itself, the junk mail is not that much of an annoyance compared to other things in life. However, it is something [...]

One of the problems with keeping a regularly updated weblog is that when you do searches on Google, you often end up being directed back to your own entries: Google Search: cambridge bike repair

N. S.

March 1st, 2003 · No Comments

Browsing through my website logs and stats, as I am wont to do when there is nothing else going on, I’ve just discovered that the most searched-for term for my website is “Neal Stephenson”; other such irrelevent terms as “Adrian Hon” come in a distant fifth. Of course, this is because Neal Stephenson is a [...]

Saw four people busking with xylophones and glockenspiels in Cambridge city centre today – I think it’s been the first time for years that I’ve felt compelled to give a street performer some money. Their performance of Blue Danube was pretty damn impressive.
On another note, I have two long posts that I have in progress [...]

Not many updates recently, alas. I’ve been watching The Princess Bride and reading The Code Book, both of which I heartily recommend. I’ve also been emailing my crew mates for my upcoming mission at the Mars Society Desert Research Station in December and writing content for the MetaFilter wiki. I plan to write a couple [...]
