I'm a Post-Doctoral Fellow in atmospheric remote sensing at the University of Reading in Reading, Berkshire, England, United Kingdom. I first came to Stack Exchange for practical reasons: Tex.SE has been of major help when I wrote my licentiate (midterm) thesis. Since then, I have discovered the joy of many websites. As my network profile will show, I'm interested in travel, outdoor, scientific skepticism, and as I work in academia, also in academia and LaTeX.

comment For what percentage of the earth's history has there been permanent ice?
@TylerDurden Paleoclimatologists might disagree. There is a considerably uncertainty, perhaps to the level of >0%, <100% (as there is currently permanent ice, it's certainly >0%). But just because we don't know the precise answer doesn't mean science can't come up with an attempt to get a figure with an appropriate associated uncertainty.

comment Is a server infrastructure fundamentally possible which the smartest person can't breach?
NB: the Great Wall of China was not designed to keep invaders from getting in, but to delay robbers loaded with valuables enough so they could be caught before they got out. I'm not sure if there exists an analogy in information security.
