Why hello there! I'm Wheelo, and it's high time I wrote something in my user space!

This is what I look like ( SL)


My appearance may change, due to my voice-activated colour changing suit.

More information on Wheelo corporation can be found below.

About me

I am an A-level student, and I am hoping to study medicine in the near future.

That means a lot of preparation. :(

In addition to gaining relevant work experience, I need to build up skills (specifically: teamwork, leadership, time management, communication, etc) - fortunately for me the SNP is the perfect opportunity for that!



  • Pulp Fiction
  • Reservoir Dogs
  • Battle Royale
  • 2001: A Space Odyssey (sp?)
  • Memento
  • Starship troopers
Some great choices, I hope you're not thinking of Schome Park descending into Battle Royale territory ;-) -- Dan
Well with the appearance of popguns, dragonballs and swords, who knows... -- Wheelo


Loud music at that.

  • Radiohead
  • Muse
  • Mute Math
  • The Strokes
  • Generic drum'n'bass
  • Generic avant-garde jazz
  • Moby
  • The Mars Volta
  • Eberg
  • Steve Vai

That's enough for now, let's not get carried away.


I must admit I am slightly more inclined towards cyberpunk books.

  • Snow Crash - Neal Stephenson
  • Neuromancer - William Gibson
  • Never Let Me Go - Kazuo Ishiguro
  • Do Androids Dream Of Electric Sheep? - Phillip K. Dick
  • A Scanner Darkly - Phillip K. Dick


  • Programming - my efforts to code a sidescroller in Actionscript continue (it WILL work). I also try my hand at HTML/CSS on occasion.
    • You may think I am good at scripting in SL; this is not the case.
If you want a script writing and/or to learn programming (in C, Python or LSL), then I'll help you, btw... --Decimus 22:03, 21 April 2007 (BST)
  • Building - recently I stuck some parts together and produced a computer.
**has taken apart a Sega Megadrive, which for some reason I have four of** :p --Decimus 22:03, 21 April 2007 (BST)
  • Gaming on said computer - guilty pleasures include:
    • Halo
    • Far Cry
    • Prey


  • I used to go windsurfing...this might explain my natural affinity for winning nautical competitions :D
  • Sports - tennis, badminton, ping pong, squash, football (only of much use in goal though), swimming
  • Like everyone else my age, I play guitar. But I play it well. Because I have been playing for 7 years.



  • Does not like cheese
  • Sleeps more than his cat
  • Is a proponent of flying spaghetti monsterism
  • Has poor logistical skills
  • Is confused about pi
  • Confuses Decimus :p


In what way are you confuzzed about pi? --Decimus 22:03, 21 April 2007 (BST)
Well if you multiply pi by infinity, would the answer be an integer or still a decimal? Just a random thought...--Wheelo Schomer 09:53, 22 April 2007 (BST)
You really shouldn't do arithmetic with infinity. Using infinity, you can prove that 1=2... And hence you can prove this either way... (and besides, there's an infinite number of different infinities) --Decimus 10:10, 22 April 2007 (BST)

What have I been up to in Second Life?

I was a bit late off the mark due to other commitments. However the SNP sounds really interesting and I want to get involved more, fortunately for me the project has been extended!

  • Attended some physics sessions
  • Attended an AI session, got a chatbot
  • Started making by own (basic) chatbot
  • Made myself a voice-activated bubble suit...very productive!
  • Made myself a voice-activated hat...and alternative head...and arrow
  • Participated in the regatta
  • Researched video codecs in Schome Park, made a machinima page
Really useful page. Thanks for doing this. Fox
  • Joined the research group, intervied various people

Plans for the future:

  • Attend more physics sessions
