I'm an applied mathematician & engineer, living & working just outside the London metro area.

Over the years and on both sides of the Atlantic, I've led a variety of quantitative & operational challenges across intelligent systems & software engineering, sonar, defense, environmental technology, robotics, and most recently the complex world of multi-channel retail.

The common thread that links passion, profession, and play is applying technology, good design, and quantitative modelling and simulation, to build better products, enable better decisions, and optimise performance.

I'm always experimenting and tinkering, so feel free to get in touch with ideas.

comment Getting as much out of laptop on battery as on AC
Great answer! I've taken the liberty to try to improve it a bit by adding a link and formatting the post.

comment graphics performance better on battery?
Since this was basically a "false alarm" why not delete the question then? Prevents someone coming to this question and finding a NULL.

@JasonAller: That works! Oddly, the comp.lang.forth.mac gz file only has posts back to Feb of this year. Unfortunate that comp.lang.forth was not there... What partial match did you use to find clfm? My various searches failed to reproduce what you found.

@JasonAller: Neat. How did you obtain the listing? The directories aren't themselves browseable. Is there a search tool somewhere?

@JasonAller: Very interesting! Though identifying which storage file(s) contain comp.lang.forth postings doesn't seem easy to do...

Google groups appears to have them (search for /88 in comp.lang.forth). Could google groups be used as a news server avoiding the awkward web interface?

@MichaelFrank: I see. Do the retention limits increase if it's text only? (I'm interested in the comp.lang.forth archives) Is it possible to use Google Groups as an NSP to point my newsreader to?
