This is Adrian McMenamin’s blog (mainly) about computing, maths and science – though other things might feature from time to time.

I have a BSc (Hons.) in Astrophysics from Edinburgh University, from 1987, and a Master’s degree (with distinction) in Computer Science in 2011, from Birkbeck College of the University of London. I have now started a PhD in real time operating systems at the University of York. But I have never worked in science or computing, so this blog is, in part, an exploration of the path not taken.

I have contributed some bits and pieces to the Linux kernel and wrote this perl module. You can see various pieces of work at GitHub – here – and read my MSc project report – on memory management in the Linux kernel – here. I also have a blog on books I read – here.

The views expressed here are my own, not those of my employer – Centreground Political Communications – or anybody else.

  1. Good blog !

    Regarding “With zero thanks to @AmazonKindle”, you may want to consider alternatives to the Kindle. I got a 10 inch M92 ebook from Onyx ( I got it on a German site) to read technical documents, much better ( https://www.onyx-boox.com/onyx-boox-m92).

    NOTE: I have nothing to do with the company onyx 😉

    hope it helps.
