Hello All :-)

I'm in bandages & stitches again (left-hand was operated on Tuesday; right hand was done last month...hope this is it! :D) so I've got time to catch up with podcasts, books and music for the next 2 weeks when stitches will come out. But here is website that some might find interesting and useful :-) ... rophysics/

Thank you Danny :)
Stitches are now off the left hand, so it looks like I'm all patched up for now :D Both hands are still sore but recovering well and I'm able to drive. I've even managed to play a few songs on the 12 strings guitar the other night. The way is up! :)

Pleased to hear you are recovering well.

Take care of the lastest hand as I notice you say both are still sore, and the other was done a month earlier, (from your first post).

Sounds like recovey isn't a two week affair so take care of them. :shock: :shock: :shock:

I notice that the above course is also available on iTunes U (can be downloaded for free and watched offline).

Also Open University and Stanford have several interesting astronomy/cosmology courses available (free) on iTunes U. Buf of course you have to use iTunes (U) to get them.

Ones I have found so far are:
Astrobiology and Space Exploration (many many hours - Stanford)
Astronomy (OU)
Mission to Titan (OU)
Physical World: quantum (OU)
Planetary Science (OU)
The Relativistic Universe (OU)
Space, Time and Consciousness (OU)

Probably loads more but a bug in iTunes does not allow you to search iTunes U if you disable the iTunes store (and I wont register for use the iTunes store) - so those are a few I have found with some random viewing.

Note that the public iTunes U is free (at least I've not seen anything not free).
