Another interesting Cambridge "tradition": The Inaugural Great Hedgehog Run and The Great Hedgehog Run 2003. Unfortunately, Trinity Hall does not seem to have any such traditions at present - though that is definitely something that could (and should) be rectified...
We had our first CAD practical today, which was great fun though slightly depressing when in one of the exercises we found the curve of intersection of a cone and a cylinder with perpendicular axes - the same task we had been set last term with pencil and ruler, but which took 30 minutes to do manually rather than 0.1 seconds!
And we have yet to be taught how to solve the problems on the examples papers we have been given, so I have very little work to do on that front. All I have instead is a ten page report on my cantilever, to be handed in next Thursday. Hooray for procrastination!
