[00:23:31] --> Kirben has joined #nuvie
[08:23:56] --> Yuv422 has joined #nuvie
[08:25:17] * Yuv422 finally has internet again!
[08:26:29] <wjp> yay :-)
[08:26:33] <wjp> hi Eric
[08:26:49] <Yuv422> Hey Willem
[08:26:53] <Yuv422> How's things?
[08:27:13] <wjp> in Bonn today to give a math talk in a few hours
[08:27:34] <Yuv422> nice
[08:28:03] <Yuv422> is it math or maths in europe
[08:28:04] <Yuv422> ?
[08:28:10] <Yuv422> we all say maths here
[08:28:28] * wjp is not a native english speaker
[08:29:12] <wjp> people around me typically say math, I think, but, well, they're not native English speakers as well :-)
[08:29:25] <wjp> s/as well/either/
[08:30:08] <Yuv422> hehe yeah.
[08:30:21] <Yuv422> sorry that was a bit of a dumb question ;-)
[08:30:46] <wjp> I'm glad my English is apparently good enough that you'd think to ask ;-)
[08:32:05] <Yuv422> It's probably better than mine! ;-)
[08:34:03] <wjp> how long were you without internet access?
[08:35:04] <Yuv422> a couple of weeks
[08:35:15] <Yuv422> I moved
[08:35:33] <wjp> ah, where to?
[08:35:50] <Yuv422> I have adsl but due to the way it is implemented here in Aus it takes forever to change it
[08:35:57] <Yuv422> just locally in Sydney
[08:36:09] <Yuv422> nothing too drastic
[08:36:27] <Yuv422> I'm closer to work now which is nice
[08:36:33] <Yuv422> only 2 and 1/2 km
[08:36:41] <wjp> ah, cool, that's very close
[08:36:58] <wjp> are bikes common in Sydney?
[08:37:30] <Yuv422> no :(
[08:37:48] <Yuv422> the roads just aren't bike friendly. :(
[08:38:06] <Yuv422> Canberra is good for bike access
[08:38:16] <Yuv422> loads of cycle paths
[08:38:33] <Yuv422> I'd be afraid to ride on the roads around my place
[08:40:32] <wjp> pity :/
[08:40:44] <wjp> we're kind of spoiled in that regard in Holland, I guess
