What on earth is nano science?

Zurg 08-02-2023 07:30 PM

It's the science about things when we get down into nanoscale. A nanometer is the same as 0,000000001 meter. Which is very small!!! If we can study and understand what happens in that scale it helps us on the Way to launching a new kind of industrial revolution. Like, we can make computers very small but our normal Technology has its limits due to the sizes of circuits on microchips and stuff. Nanoscience has made us able to swap some of the mechanical/electrical components on microchips to organic ones which makes us able to construct them in much, much smaller size.
It's basically a mix of all natural science types but with the focus of constructing new stuff on a very small scale.
Most people thought i was quite mad when i Got into the uni course. Turns out they were quite right though… ;)

not_so_insig 08-02-2023 08:25 PM

I do it once a week because I don't drive and it's the only time the person I go with can fit me into her schedule. That's the downside of not being able to drive.

Cacoethes 09-02-2023 12:02 AM

Nanoscience sounds fascinating!

I am back. Left early because I've been on the go since 6:30am and am shattered XD

Cacoethes 09-02-2023 08:30 AM

Morning everyone!

Zurg 09-02-2023 08:34 AM

Morning Beckie :)
How are you??

Cacoethes 09-02-2023 11:35 AM

I'm ok thanks!
You?

not_so_insig 09-02-2023 12:00 PM

Morning all. I went outside to see if my recycling had been collected and luckily for me the bin men were just arriving. So I sat on my bench for about 3 minutes and got my boxes and bag once they had finished.

I have nothing to do except wait for couriers and post my friends card. It's her wedding anniversary soon so I bought her a card. The post won't get collected until tomorrow. I have some postcards to post as well.

tamobhuuta 09-02-2023 12:02 PM

Post! I love post!

not_so_insig 09-02-2023 12:16 PM

Except when it's bills or letters from the dwp tamobhuuta.

Cacoethes 09-02-2023 12:29 PM

I had a hot chocolate after pilates.
Bit of a nightmare with pharmacy as doctors hadn't sent the repeat over so had to go to doctors and they text me barcodes to take to the pharmacy so they can track it?
But didn't have time to go back to the pharmacy.
The lady in front of me at the drs was arguing for ages with the receptionist about something that couldn't be changed :eyeroll:

tamobhuuta 09-02-2023 01:20 PM

Yes insig!

Mmm hot chocolate. But frustrating morning.

one_step_closer 09-02-2023 02:32 PM

Hi everyone.

Does that mean you don't have your meds, Beckie? Some people like to argue over nothing if they are wrong. Did you have a nice time yesterday despite leaving early?

How are you, Kat? Nano science sounds very in depth.

My bin has been emptied too, Dawn. I had just washed my hair and was going out for it and my neighbour was bringing it in for me. Do you need to go to the post office to send your postcards?

Tamo, I also love nice post. That's one of the reason why I do the positive pen paling.

Cacoethes 09-02-2023 02:34 PM

I do not. But I can get them tomorrow before work.
I did have a nice time thanks!

My bin has also been emptied!

one_step_closer 09-02-2023 02:38 PM

Do you have what you need until you can get them tomorrow? Do you have things to be doing today?

tamobhuuta 09-02-2023 02:46 PM

I'm watching doctors. I missed yesterday's and can't find it on the iplayer :(

Cacoethes 09-02-2023 02:56 PM

Yeah I have enough.

I had pilates this morning. Bodycombat came to an abrupt end after fainting so I came home. Need to clean out the piggies and taekwondo later.

one_step_closer 09-02-2023 03:23 PM

Oh no, are you ok Beckie? Shouldn't you be resting or something? Why do you think you fainted? Should you really be going to taekwondo later?

That's frustrating, Tamo. I find that sometimes catch up players don't put on some of the episodes of things and just skip them for some reason. I hope they do put it on at some point.

Cacoethes 09-02-2023 04:16 PM

Totally fine.
I have ages to rest now. Cleaned out the piggies and don't have to leave until 5:45ish. So got plenty of time to recover!
No idea why I fainted. I have been eating adequately.
I'll be fine.

What have you been up to today?

not_so_insig 09-02-2023 04:36 PM

No I don't need to go to the post office Lindsay. I just shove 2 x 1st class stamps on my postcard and it's sufficient postage.

I have posted my postcards and card.

tamobhuuta 09-02-2023 05:41 PM

Look after yourself Cacoethes x

one_step_closer 09-02-2023 05:46 PM

You worry me, Beckie! Please look after yourself. How are the fluffies?

Is there a post box near you, Dawn? Do you now have to wait in for a delivery?

How are you getting on, Tamo?

Today I just washed my hair and did my usual stuff.

Cacoethes 09-02-2023 05:51 PM

Honestly I'm fine!
The fluffies are good! They are enjoying their freshly cleaned cage!
Just about to give them their dinner!

Well done for the hair washing!

one_step_closer 09-02-2023 05:53 PM

How often do you feed them? Do they make cute noises when they eat?

not_so_insig 09-02-2023 06:13 PM

The nearest postbox is 3 mins walk away so not too far. I am no longer waiting for any parcels as both evri and ups came within 20 minutes of each other. I had a minor panic as I thought an bit was missing from the ups parcel but it turned out that it fell on the floor.

Cacoethes 09-02-2023 06:14 PM

Twice a day.
They wheek when I'm getting the food ready, after that it's just loud munching!
When my friend came over the other week, she said it was like ASMR when they were happily munching their veg!

one_step_closer 09-02-2023 06:16 PM

I'm glad the bit turned out not to be missing, Dawn. What will you be doing with your evening?

Loud munching is a nice sound in animals but not really in humans!

Cacoethes 09-02-2023 06:22 PM

Definitely not in humans!
I walked past a lady once who was chewing gum with a very exaggerated and loud open chewing motion. All I did was walk past and I wanted to punch her in the face! So annoying!

Cacoethes 10-02-2023 09:40 AM

Morning everyone

tamobhuuta 10-02-2023 11:09 AM

Morning, how are you?

Cacoethes 10-02-2023 11:15 AM

Ok thanks.
You?

tamobhuuta 10-02-2023 11:40 AM

I'm ok. I've got an appointment with my CPN this afternoon.

long road 10-02-2023 11:43 AM

Hey everyone,

I am feeling a bit down this morning, didn't have the most settled night and had some bad dreams. Got a busy day today, have to do new morning routine of going outside but also this afternoon need to go see a family member for their birthday and this evening I have my regular role playing game. I think this might be slightly too many things especially as I am feeling more vulnerable today.

How is everyone else? What are you up to today?

Ninja Tamo. Hope your appointment goes well and your CPN can help you with the stuff in your thread recently.

Cacoethes 10-02-2023 11:43 AM

Hope it goes ok.

I have work. But not sure if I'm starting at 12 or 1. Hopefully someone replies soon. If not I'll probably just go for 12

Ninja post jen!
Sorry you're not feeling great.
Do you have to do all the things?

long road 10-02-2023 12:34 PM

Kind of do. Going outside and routine is most important. Could maybe not stay long with family. I like family but not sure I want to people. I want to do RPG as it usually distracts me and cheers me up and worried seeing family will mean I don't have capacity for RPG.

one_step_closer 10-02-2023 03:47 PM

Hi everyone. I'm a bit stressed because I've missed a lot of the day being at a meeting thing about how psychologists word their letters etc and how they can be made more user friendly. Then everyone sat for a while having cake and chatting. I've got my washing done anyway.

How did your appointment go, Tamo? (when it's been). I hope you manage/managed to say everything you need to.

I hope you can figure out what is best for you, Jen.

I hope work is going well, Beckie.

long road 10-02-2023 03:57 PM

Really didn't sleep well so considering a nap. But having problems making decisions / helping myself self care wise today. I managed to wash my face and go outside but it hasn't really helped my mood.

Have you seen Linkin Park have just dropped a previously unreleased song from 20 years ago OSC? It called Lost.

tamobhuuta 10-02-2023 04:17 PM

My appointment was fine, just 10 minutes to see I'm safe. He was very pleased too that I'm showering every day. He wants me to get out more. One thing at a time!

long road 10-02-2023 04:58 PM

One thing at a time makes sense you have to make changes gradually for them to stick after all. Well done for keeping up with the showers.

I am still trying to convince myself to take a nap.

one_step_closer 10-02-2023 05:23 PM

Will a nap help, Jen? Why are you having to convince yourself? Is your mind saying something different needs to be done?

Yeah, I listened to Lost. I think they're re-releasing Reanimation in April or something, don't know if it will be the same tracks or different.

Well done for what you're managing, Tamo. I hope you can be doing more but at your own pace.

not_so_insig 10-02-2023 07:40 PM

Tamobhuuta the BBC have dropped 14 episodes including one this week of Doctors. That's why you couldn't find the episode the other day. The reason why is because it featured an explosion and the BBC thought it was inappropriate given the situation in Syria and Turkey.

long road 10-02-2023 08:15 PM

I napped, it helped. I was exhausted but my mind was very anti caring for myself and saying nothing would help. I was struggling to make decisions so was in a sort of holding pattern of not doing much. But eventually lay down and before I knew it was sound asleep.

Didn't go to see family member in the end as I was asleep but also there were complications with people being ill so we probably wouldn't have been on anyway.

Have a bit of a headache now but taken something for it and hoping I will be well enough to play on my RPG tonight after dinner.

I saw they were re-releasing Meteora as a 20th anniversary edition which Lost is part of so maybe remastered with a few lost songs?

Cacoethes 10-02-2023 08:35 PM

Hey everyone!

Work was ok. Apart from the last hour when the card machines and ipads decided to go down. Fun fun...

tamobhuuta 10-02-2023 09:51 PM

I'm glad the nap helped long road.

Shame about the tech fail Cacoethes.

Cacoethes 10-02-2023 10:03 PM

Yeah it wasn't good!
The card machines have been playing up for quite a while but never this bad. And not on a Friday when it starts to get busy!

long road 10-02-2023 10:49 PM

Computer says no is never fun! Especially not in a Friday rush that must have been carnage.

I am roleplaying and having a load of fun pretending to be my space marine

Cacoethes 10-02-2023 10:51 PM

It was!
Always happens at the worst times.
But up until 5pm, it was a pretty good shift!
Me and my friend had a drink after work and ranted for a bit.

Ooh that sounds fun!
My brother had a D&D stag do. His best man dressed up as the pope. They had lots of fun!

long road 11-02-2023 01:31 AM

I met my partner playing D&D it and othe role-playing games are one of our shared interests. Just finished and am off to bed now.

Cacoethes 11-02-2023 08:52 AM

Morning everyone!

tamobhuuta 11-02-2023 11:15 AM

Morning. How are you?
