      I do not feel well for Upul, Phil and the others who had to leave, and I wish we could have had more interactions amongst the scientist participants, so I have set up a mailing list for that purpose.

      Besides, Ian has kindly joined me in offering 10% of the prize money (should either of us two win) to the student who is first to solve the Beryllium Fraud challenge before the final evictions are announced.

      So even if I were to go before him, that challenge would still stand a chance to earn its winner real money, as opposed to 10% of nothing.

      Well sorry to see Upal and Phil evicted but someone has to go each day this week so bit nervous as we now get down to the final three! I have really enjoyed this event and hoping to get lots more questions to answer today and if I stay in the competition then tommorow as well!

      I’m feeling a bit nervous now for the first time! I’m leaving the office now for two days so I won’t be able to find out who’s won until the end of Friday! (I’m working at the Bang Goes the Theory Roadshow in London tomorrow) I guess leaving town is one way of handling nerves!
