Note:These pages make extensive use of the latest XHTML and CSS Standards. They ought to look great in any standards-compliant modern browser. Unfortunately, they will probably look horrible in older browsers, like Netscape 4.x and IE 4.x. Moreover, many posts use MathML, which is, currently only supported in Mozilla. My best suggestion (and you will thank me when surfing an ever-increasing number of sites on the web which have been crafted to use the new standards) is to upgrade to the latest version of your browser. If that's not possible, consider moving to the Standards-compliant and open-source Mozilla browser.

The Fat Lady Sings

I was chatting with our new postdoc, and the conversation went something like this:

Mohammad: So, why aren’t you blogging any more?
Jacques: If I were blogging, I would probably be writing posts about superluminal neutrinos. Surely, that’s not what you want.
Mohammad: Hmmmm….
Jacques: On the other hand, Cohen and Glashow wrote a very nice paper laying that whole miserable subject to rest.
