So, work's being pretty hectic this week. We have a workshop next week where we spend some time with our industrial partners talking about how the research is going - there's usually a lot of back-and-forth where we talk about example building design problems and what kind of information our software will be able to provide about them. I'll maybe post a couple of example buildings that we've generated some time - they don't mean much to those who aren't building designers or computer scientists of course but they look nice. I'll be giving a presentation on all the different ways we can show the tradeoff between a building's energy, cost, comfort and other things, which should hopefully kick off a good discussion. So I've been doing a fair bit of preparation - and unfortunately plan "sleep" didn't work so well last night and I'm pretty tired :( Hence my afternoon break and retreat into the blog. Hopefully tonight things will be better!

To cheer the soul, here's something I've been meaning to post for ages. I accept that computer scientist humour is pretty bad (one of my first days as a researcher at RGU we all had a good laugh about using a random search algorithm to find somewhere to go for lunch. Hmm.) However, here's a piece of building designer humour, on the wall of the kitchen in the office I work in...
