For the last 3 days, there has been a network problem that has kept me and a few other Australians from accessing this site.
I must say it's good to see the rest of the world managed to keep things moving without me
That is tough, Tony. I heard about it too. Apparently the equatorial packet inverters were bolloxed. They, of course, are neccesary to turn the southern hemisperic packets composed of down quarks to the northern hemishperic up quarks variety. It is actually a tricky bit of engineering requiring an underlying interaction with the boson and the proton whereby an up quark is be converted into a down quark, reversing the isospin magnitude of the affected nucleon.
Oh that's the reason I just thought that maybe you were still recovering from your B-day.
It's good to see that David knows his Quarks from his Mesons
