From Oxford

True to form, the Wellington English sent my passport, with no email acknowledgement, to Christchurch, with a visa stamp that expires on April 4, 2009. So I threw everything in my case in 10 minutes, hopped into Kerie's car with Kerie, and headed for Christchurch, six hours away by road. I then took a short flight to Auckland, followed by a very, very long flight to London via Hong Kong, arriving only a few hours ago. Am now enjoying the sights, staying at Oriel College, and will have to figure out where the Computing Lab is tomorrow.

That's AWESOME news! Enjoy the weather! ;-)

And make sure your visa is prolonged at least until july 2009, so that we can meet when I come to London for a conference!

Cool! Good luck with your mathematical physics in Oxford. If you give any talks or public lectures, it will be nice to be able go to Oxford to hear you!

Quick update: this is so much fun! Met more Comlab people than I can possibly remember. Forms all filled out, desk and computer set up, printer nearby, dangerous potential seminar calendar noted....

That is wonderful news! That sounds like the week I was told to report to Houston. I packed a bag and was on the next convenient flight.

Well. After wasting considerable time at Abstruse Goose, all I ended up with was this message.

LOL, Carl! That's hilarious. Tomorrow (Monday) I should get my uni card and then AF will be back in action.

I suppose I should add that that was the answer to This puzzle.
