OK, I'm here. Good morning everyone from northern Sweden. 7.55 here and bacon and eggs and orange juice are on the way. The kids are watching cartoons and it's a beautiful, sunny day here and -5C :)
Cheers, Wayne

No problem friction. I run my own language business, proofreading and translating texts for academia and numerous outdoor companies. Met Anneli in 1996 when she was an exchange student in Montreal and moved here in 1998. Now we have two kids :), house, and a great life. What's your story? What time is it in Ohio anyway? Isn't Ohio football and baseball country? The Browns, Reds?

If her grad friends are good looking, you're definitely in the wrong place. Nothing like playing board games with a bunch of academics.

yea I left right after I saw some chick yakking in the kitchen sink :rolleyes: sis' crowd talks a lot of physics shop but for sure there's some awesome smart and beautiful women in her posse. not that they'd ever give the time of day to my dorkass and a couple are even married but whatevs. I'd way rather get scraped off their shoes playing trivia than watch people hurl.

Interestingly enough, I proofread an enormous amount of PhD stuff for the Dept of Machine Element at the local university. And in particular, tribology. Recently read a doctoral thesis on tribology and lubrication of train tracks.

if you ever are really bored and want to bore yourself even more....or if you want what I consider to be the single most easy to read summary of tribology anywhere click the following (its part of the intro to my thesis)

my advisor did some stuff with railroad car wheels (it may have been rail steels I can't remember)
