Quick link to my Stat 4620/5620 home page.

This, should you be wondering, is the same page I used to have in my Simon Fraser University days. I have updated a few of the more egregiously wrong links, but otherwise it's the same dull appearances as before.

Talking of dull appearances... this is me...

I have just started a new job as a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Mathematics, Statistics and Computer Science at Dalhousie University, which is in Halifax, Nova Scotia, on the east coast of Canada.

Before that, I was, for (ahem) rather a long time, a Graduate Student in Statistics in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at Simon Fraser University.

If, for some strange reason, you want to mail me, butler@mscs.dal.ca is the place.

The rest of this is a messy collection of links hither and yon. Explore at your peril... but if you find one that doesn't work, let me know.

My favourite newsgroup. Click here to sample the goings-on. Bring your own Marmite. If you want to know more, try visiting the group's web page.

Trains

Anyone who knows me at all will realise that I am not easily stopped from talking about trains...

A good Web starting point for rail stuff is the Mercurio European railways page. If you feel like some imaginary travel, visit the European trip planner in Germany, which has some other interesting links, or the subway travel planner, where you can explore the local rail systems of cities all over the world.

I've travelled on a train or two myself. Click here to check out my (extensive!) journey notes.

And I have collected together the distances between stations on the British rail network.

Soccer

The RSSSF archive, maintained by Karel Stokkermans, contains more than you could ever wish to know about the present and past of the game...

My slightly less enormous archive contains fixtures and results for this season's leagues in Europe and elsewhere, with a few other things besides.

Other soccer links

And I'm running a couple of prediction competitions, one forMajor League Soccer in the US, and one for the soccer league in Switzerland.

Software?

Well, there's only the one thing, and it's none too thrilling, but there's a page about it anyway.
