Simple queueing demo added

The demo for August is now on the site: it does simple queueing systems. I’m teaching this stuff again next year, so I though this would be useful. It’s not entirely new this one, it’s a re-write of a demo that was originally done a long time ago in VB, but now it’s available in Silverlight and on-line.

It’s in the “Maths and Basic Concepts” section.

(By the way, if you’re wondering why I’ve spelt “queueing” with two ‘e’s when it’s more commonly spelt with just one, it’s because it is (as far as I know) the only word in English with five consecutive vowels, so I think it should be preserved where possible.)

Nothing more from me for the rest of this month – I’m going on “holiday”. I put that in inverted commas since I suspect this is going to be the sort of holiday that is enjoyed some time afterwards; it’s proving to be very stressful to get everything ready for this trip. I must make a resolution not to plan any holidays quite so adventurous in future; they are supposed to be relaxing, aren’t they? Isn’t that the whole point?
