glenbarnett's Journal

Glen Barnett
Often f-locked and occasional - a journal about my life, roleplaying and hobby gaming, science, mathematics, statistics and probability, and just general waffle. Edit warning: though it is supposedly bad form, I do sometimes make minor corrections to my text after I have posted without marking it as such. However, if that causes a comment to no longer make sense I do try to followup the comment to indicate it.
