Weekly Notebook  
Sunday: Normal Sunday stuff, running, housework, watched second episode of Class.

Monday: Resident's Association AGM, characterised by a lack of enthusiasm for a litter rota.

Tuesday: Spent a lot of time trouble-shooting a student's Raspberry Pi Camera connection (only to discover I was repeating work he had done, but which his English wasn't really sufficient to explain to me). In the end I told him to buy a second camera which seems to have fixed the issue.

Wednesday: School "Networking" meeting. I think this was supposed to allow Electrical Engineers and Computer Scientists to get to know each other, but was characterised primarily by Computer Scientists complaining about the way research funds are allocated internally.

Thursday: Actually managed to spend a good chunk of the day actually doing research - or at least programming integrating a Prolog based planner into our system.

Friday: Experimental Words - the Poets meet Scientists event. This went better than I had feared (I had been fairly gloomy about it at some points in the preceding weeks) and we had a very indulgent audience, which helped. That said, I'd say there was (possibly inevitably) a distinct air of the amateur about it.

Saturday: Only 2s off my personal best in the Park Run. I think I can safely say I have now regained the form I had at the start of the summer. We went to Dr. Strange in the afternoon, which we enjoyed, then I dashed to Piccadilly Station to meet rain_sleet_snow for coffee as she passed through on her way to a halloween party. In the evening we made yet another attempt on the Eldritch Horror board game. This ended with a general agreement that the difficulty of the game is set a bit higher than we enjoy - discussion of appropriate "house rules" that would make it easier ensued, because we like the basic format of the game.

G. has been distracted by the discovery of a new season of Miss Fisher on Netflix. I'm hoping to convince her that we really ought to try to keep up to date with Class as well.
