I just ate my last figroll. Apparently there is a shortage of figrolls in England, according to an article in the Guardian. While the shops on campus still have limited supplies of figrolls I wonder how long this will last. Perhaps Irish figroll makers have different suppliers. For the benefit of Cormac I've included a picture of a fig and figtree.

I am giving a short talk on ring-linear coding today. I have put the pdf of my talk on my website for anyone who might be interested in learning about rings, codes and Mac Williams' Equivalence Theorem extended to codes over Frobenius rings. Wish me luck!
