Lents: Jesus on Christ's

Alas. But it was a good week. this, for my own records, and possibly for you interest if that's the kind of thing you're interested in.


Men: Caius serene, Downing troubled a little by Pembroke charging at them, but not past the Plough. Christ's up one, Kings spoons.
Women: Jesus up two (Emma, Christ's) to head; Downing had their chance on Saturday but weren't up to it; indeed, they crabbed at the Plough and were nearly caught by Christ's, who alas were caught be Newnham - who I quite like - instead.

Here's a pic from Wednesday and - breaking the habit of a lifetime - I've embedded if from fb rather than just nicking it. Pembroke are about to catch the unlucky Queens', and will get Jesus on Thursday.

And then my videos:


* Women, Saturday
* Women, Friday
* Women, Thursday
* Women, Wednesday continued


* Men, Saturday
* Men, Friday
* Men, Thursday
* Men, Wednesday

Video quality is only 480 pixel on Saturday, due to Technical Issues.

2016 saw the dawn of a new era, and unsurprisingly on the men's side it continued; Maggie were very fast. Clare bumped up two (Pembroke; Caius, still looking nice but under powered) but couldn't touch Maggie despite having two attempts. Saturday saw LMBC two cementing their place in div 1 just…
Arrr, the ol' spinnin' post, its seen a thing or two over the years. You could probably reconstruct the headship changes from its various colours. Last painted by Downing, when they went head in Lents in 2014; Caius were too cool to repaint it when they stayed head in Mays of that year, or re-took…
Lents again; here's a link to 2016 if you want to re-live the past. It was a great week, full of thrills and excitement. Caius weren't up to it (as prefigured by Mays) and were caught by Downing on the first day; Maggie patiently bumped Pembroke then Caius to get their shot at Downing on day 3.…
This week is the Lent bumps, and I've been down to watch (except tuesday, when I forgot - since when do the bumps run over 5 days? - and thursday, when it was grey and miserable). Today was a lovely still sunny chill March afternoon, and I was rewarded with some fine bumping action to watch. First…

See any Pococks? I'm sick of my daily 6k on the erg so these posts keep me sane.

Sometime ago, you expressed belief that Moore's law would continue. What does this have rowing? Something, something, I'm sure. Someone help me out here.

Nature has published what most people in the industry have known for a while.

Phil writes:"Not only quantitative but also qualitative growth has limits."

I;m not sure how one could ever say that qualitative growth has limits. Is it prettier? Cooler color scheme? Better shaped? One can easily imagine a 'rock,paper,scissors' scenario where what is perceived as 'quality' continually increases without even ever really changing.

Writ larger, the best book ever has already been written? The best movie of all time has already been made? Quality in these cases, more important the consumer perception of quality, is an ever changing feature and claiming a limit on it makes little sense unless one believes in a literal infinite number of choices are available to the consumer.
